The Proposed Development Under Cavendish Square

These pictures show Cavendish Square.


  1. Underneath the square is a very expensive car park
  2. Harley Street, with its medical connections, lies at one cornet.
  3. John Lewis sits on another corner.

It is a very pleasant place to sit and have lunch on a sunny day.

This article on IanVisits is entitled A Shopping Centre Under Cavendish Square?.

Ian details how, plans are emerging to turn the Cavendish Square car park into a shopping centre and medical complex, spread over four floors under a re landscaped Cavendish Square.

Ian also discloses how the square was used as an access point to build the Victoria Line in the 1960s.

This development could change the area in several ways.

  • Cavendish Square could become an even better landscaped garden.
  • The medical complex would be a much-needed modern extension to Harley Street.
  • Could the development be used to create the much-needed step-free access to Oxford Circus station?
  • Would upmarket shoppers be drawn to the development?
  • Could the square become electric vehicles only?

I very much think this development could be a valuable addition to the area.
