Fletcher Priest Architects have designed One Hooper’s Court to provide maximum flexibility with a typical floorplate of 14,000 sq ft.
With an impressive and engaging entrance lobby, a stunning fifth-floor terrace, large open-plan floorplates and an abundance of natural daylight, One Hooper’s Court will provide the ideal office environment.
The Knightsbridge Estate is a spectacular 3.5 acre island site located between Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
Purchased by The Olayan Group in 2010, this exquisitely located destination is undergoing a transformation. Already many of the shops on Brompton Road and Hans Crescent have been remodelled, attracting a variety of engaging new brands. The Landlord with asset and development manager Chelsfield, also set out to improve the pedestrian flow around The Estate by widening the pavement. The first phase completed in 2016.
The second and most significant part of the redevelopment is currently happening at the northern end of The Estate. As well at the 67,000 sq ft of state-of-the-art offices at One Hooper’s Court, it will deliver seven flagship retail stores, 33 luxury rental apartments and a destination rooftop restaurant with a ground floor cafe. Furthermore, the pavement on Brompton Road and Sloane Street will be widened, a brand new tube entrance further west along Brompton Road will open in 2021, and step-free access will be introduced on Hooper’s Court in 2021.
