In October 2015, Cadogan secured planning permission from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to deliver an exemplary redevelopment for the area.

Construction will begin shortly following many years of consultation and engagement with residents, local businesses, tenants, customers and the wider community.

The plans will restore the historic façade of the original
art-deco Gaumont Theatre building, introducing the best of modern design in harmony with the heritage surroundings.

The scheme will feature

  • Flexible retail space, including both small and larger shops, on King’s Road and Chelsea Manor Street;
  • An improved Waitrose store;
  • A large pub in the same location as the existing pub;


  • An independent cinema which, once completed, will see Curzon reinstated to a 600 seat cinema with improved disabled access and customer experience;
  • 47 new homes including for affordable and market rent;
  • A rooftop bar providing a unique view across Chelsea and beyond;
  • High quality office space.
