A change of use for london arts college on charing cross road

A planning application has recently been submitted on behalf of the University of the Arts London (St. Martin’s College) for the change of use of 107-109 Charing Cross Road.  This would be from an educational institute to retail on part basement, ground and first floor, 28 residential flats from second to sixth floors and a community use at ground floor.  The college also owns the adjoining buildings that stretch all the way through to Greek Street but these are not part of this application.
