Welcome

We are inviting views on Derwent London and Lazari Investments’ revised proposals for the future of 38-70 Baker Street, W1, on the Portman Estate.

Since we submitted our application in December 2022, we have been carefully listening to the feedback submitted to Westminster City Council, as well as continuing to develop some of the ideas and suggestions which were put forward in our plans.

Our 2022 application can be seen on Westminster City Council’s website here or by using application ref: 22/08200/FULL.

We will be hosting two exhibition sessions at 56 Baker Street on the following dates:

  • 7th February 2024, 4:30pm-7:30pm 
  • 8th February 2024, 4:30pm-7:30pm
