Albany House & 80-82 Mortimer Street


Gross Internal Floor Area

The Crown Estate’s redevelopment of Albany House and 80-82 Mortimer Street has been an extensive and vital project to the area’s revitalization. Among the project’s numerous tasks, a notable accomplishment includes the amalgamation and conversion to residential use of two Grade-II listed buildings.

These buildings provide not only structural historical significance to the area but also have become imperative to meet the current demand for residential properties available for rental.

The conversion has allowed for 24 apartments to be available for rent in the area. The refurbishment of these buildings also hit a high standard, receiving a remarkable EcoHomes Excellent rating. Additionally, to ensure energy efficiency, communal heating and cooling systems were installed in the buildings. To complement this, solar thermal collectors were placed on the roof level to capture renewable energy.

These significant steps ensured sustainable living practices while preserving the historical value of the area.
