Asset Manager BlackRock appointed Alchemi as Development Manager to explore the potential for its commercial property, 5 Strand, after following their success in redeveloping the RIBA Award winning 55 Victoria Street.

On appointment, Alchemi held an architectural competition based on a comprehensive brief, set by Studio L, to improve efficiency and seek the best development option for the site considering its important position in the Trafalgar Square Conservation Area.

Award-winning international architectural practice, Adjaye Associates delivered the winning entry. Resolution to grant planning consent for a stunning eleven-storey mixed-use development was green-lighted in July 2017.  The configuration includes 62,000 ft2 of Grade A offices as well as 38,000 ft2 of private residential from the seventh through to the eleventh floors.  

The project sold to an overseas Hotel Developer at the end of May 2018. The sale attracted huge interest which Alchemi contributed to the design team having delivered an outstanding planning consent of great design and additional massing of approx 35,000 ft2. There were 22 bids received and resulted in a sale that far exceeded client expectations.
