We have developed proposals and supported a successful planning application for the comprehensive refurbishment of an existing office building at 120 The Broadway, Wimbledon. The building comprises circa. 70,000 sqft of office and ancillary accommodation above a Sainsbury’s supermarket and is located within the central area of Wimbledon Town Centre.
The building is owned by M&G Real Estate who’s brief is to bring the building up to current technical standards and improve the quality of accommodation and the amenity value of the commercial space. Workspace culture has undergone a transformation since this building was constructed in 2007 and, as a result, the existing facility provides poor quality and unsustainable accommodation and is partially vacant. Our proposals seek to address these issues and provide an exemplar new workplace in this important town centre location.
Our proposals include the creation of a new reception and workspace at ground floor, the complete replacement of all M&E installations within the building, and the creation of state-of-the-art occupier facilities including new showers and changing rooms. We are also proposing to extend the building at the existing fifth floor level and create a communal roof terrace. On the ground floor, we aim to reconfigure the buildings entrance, providing a new independent commercial entrance. New doors and glazing will be inserted to the ground floor reception space and breakout spaces will be created providing activity and vibrancy, as well as function, to the street frontage of the building, where little exists at present. A new vertical signage fascia is also proposed to provide identity from the town centre.
Externally, we are proposing to treat the existing red brick façade to a darker tone through the application of an appropriate stain or paint finish. This intervention is aimed at helping reposition the building in the market place, both visually and technically.
The project is currently on site and is due to complete early 2021.
