Cardinal Place

Some developments just feel right from day one. Since opening in December 2005, Cardinal Place has become one of the most recognisable sights in Victoria, the dramatic sweep of its glass façade narrowing to a single point at the corner of Victoria Street and Bressenden Place.

The estate includes two main buildings – 16 Palace Street and 80-100 Victoria Street – linked by attractive public gardens and thoroughfares. 51,840 sqm of offices have caught the interest of blue-chip businesses from sectors rarely seen in Victoria before, including Microsoft’s MSN, Expedia, EDF Trading, EDF Energy, 3i and Wellington Investment Management. Meanwhile, 24 new retail and restaurant brands have arrived, including a Marks & Spencer anchor store. Above it, you’ll find a roof garden offering an oasis of tranquillity. Then there’s the SW1 Gallery, a cultural hub at the heart of this new community.

The final part of the mix is The View – a complex of 124 residential apartments with all-glass walls opening onto broad balconies. It’s living testimony to our belief that residential, retail, commercial and cultural interests can not only live harmoniously within the same development, but all mutually benefit from the juxtaposition.
