Millbank Tower and Complex

Our proposed conversion of the Grade II Listed Millbank Tower into residential, hotel and cultural use includes complete replacement of the innovative stainless steel and glass facades to exactly match the original materials and profiles.  When finished, this distinctive London landmark will showcase the same qualities of modernity as it did in 1963 when first built.

The Millbank Tower site is particularly sensitive - directly located on the Embankment, and surrounded by conservation areas and nearby heritage landmarks including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey.  It is also visible from the Parliament Square World Heritage Site, as designated by UNESCO.

John McAslan + Partners has been commissioned by Basio Holdings Ltd to convert the Grade II listed Millbank Tower and Complex into high-end residential and 5-star hotel use. The original scheme was designed by Ronald Ward + Partners for the engineering company Vickers and completed in 1963. It is one of the few London towers to be praised for its structural elegance and composition.

Our proposal increases public access to the complex by providing:

- Various Food and Beverage outlets, including publically accessible sky bar with river views on the 34th floor, as well as a new cafe on top of the podium on the third floor also with river views

- Gym and spa in the basement accessible to members

- New cultural centre at the Southern end of the building, spread over three floors

- New amphitheatre linked with the indoor cultural spaces
