‘Westminster council will not concede to major changes on listed elements’

Within the Noho Square development – formally the Middlesex hospital – is the Italian gothic chapel, with ornate mosaic and marble decorations.  This Grade II listed building is the last remaining from the original hospital which was built in 1891.  Other buildings which have to be retained and were linked to the hospital include 10 Mortimer Street on the corner with Nassau Street, a grade II listed four storey building designed in the arts and crafts style.

Interestingly the hospital façade on Nassau Street which Dowd & Company faces and was built at the beginning of the 20th Century, is not listed.  The planning brief however has suggested that the façade should be retained.
