Save Welbeck Street Car Park from Demolition !!
This petition had 3,156 supporters
Westminister Council has approved the demolition of the Welbeck Street car park, which was designed by Michael Blampied and Partners in 1971 for the department store Debenhams.
It will now be torn down to make way for a 10-storey hotel with a spa, restaurant and roof terrace. Designed by Eric Parry Architects.
Welbeck Street car park, which features a diamond-patterned facade made up from prefabricated concrete, is the latest in a spate of mid-century buildings facing demolition in the UK.
The car park was denied listed status by the government heritage body Historic England.
I personally love this building, I can't help but take a picture every time I pass by, although I'm not attached to the idea of it staying a carpark, I feel this building could very easily be adapted to another use protecting those beautiful diamonds!!
I feel that we are losing too many brutalist buildings of late, Robin Hood gardens and Sampson house amongst many. Lets rally together to save this one!
