The planning brief from Westminster City Council stated that the 1960s buildings were of ‘little architectural merit’; these have now been mainly demolished since the site’s acquisition from the Ministry of Defence in January 2008. The brief also noted that ‘The primary scale of the new buildings will be the buildings at Pimlico Road’ and required that at least 0.8 hectares of the site was publicly accessible and that 50 per cent of the residential units on the site were affordable housing.
