Noho Square, former site of Middlesex Hospital
Make’s designs to be replaced at central London’s former Middlesex Hospital site
Sheppard Robson is to draw up one of central London’s largest schemes after Iceland’s failed Kaupthing Bank agreed to revisit plans to develop the site of the former Middlesex Hospital.
The site in Fitzrovia was was once part-owned by developers the Candy Brothers, who appointed Make and aped a similar development in New York City by dubbing it “NoHo Square”.
It stalled after Make’s 60,000sq m scheme failed to win planning and Kaupthing entered administration.
Nick and Christian Candy later swapped their 33% stake for a stake in a Beverly Hills development also owned by the Icelandic bank.
Following the signing of a joint venture agreement last week by Kaupthing, Aviva Investors and Exemplar Properties, the latter confirmed that Sheppard Robson would design a smaller development of 250 upmarket flats, 80 affordable housing units, shops, a school and a medical centre.
They have also abandoned the much-maligned NoHo name.
