About the project

Derwent London’s vision is to re-develop the Network Building (95-100 Tottenham Court Road) and 14-19 Tottenham Mews. Both buildings occupy prominent locations and do not currently live up to their potential or represent the most effective use of space.

The Network Building sits on the corner of Tottenham Court Road, Howland Street and Whitfield Street. The project offers an excellent opportunity to significantly improve the conditions of the site by providing a modern commercial building that is fit for contemporary workplace practices. The proposals will also create high-quality retail space fronting Tottenham Court Road that is in keeping with one of London’s most popular retail destinations.

The site at Tottenham Mews is unoccupied and in a poor condition. As part of the redevelopment, we are proposing to develop an environmentally sustainable building to provide much needed affordable homes for Camden residents with the opportunity to provide affordable workspace.

Our plans will transform both buildings to create thriving spaces for people to live, work, visit and enjoy. This online consultation has been designed to ensure that the local community can have their say on the proposals ahead of the planning application being submitted to Camden Council.

Our Plans

At the Network Building proposals include:

  • 15,812 sqm of high-quality office space
  • Creating 464sqm of retail, restaurant and cafe space at ground floor level on Tottenham Court Road
  • Creating a high-quality public realm around the building including a widening of pavements and greening
  • Relocating the main office building entrance to Howland Street and improving the experience of the street with better public realm and no footpath interruption from Cypress Place
  • Better servicing strategy that moves delivery and refuse to Cypress Place
  • The opportunity to adapt the Network Building to a lab enabled scheme that will incorporate life sciences within the building.
  • Sustainability initiatives including encouraging an all-electric heating and cooling strategy to minimise associated nitrogen oxides emissions which will contribute to improved air quality along Tottenham Court.
