Chelsea Barracks represents a historic collaboration between the finest masterplanners and minds in the architectural world, to establish an entirely new neighbourhood within London’s most esteemed enclave.
This world-class masterplan comprising a rare collection of apartments and townhouses, reintroduces London’s famous garden squares to Belgravia, with five acres of new public space and exquisite amenities. The development revitalises the tradition of London’s famous squares at the heart of its Great Estates. This completes the site’s extraordinary journey - from fertile fields to pleasure gardens, storied barracks and, finally, a unique neighbourhood.
The completed £3 billion scheme is due to have up to 448 homes, including 123 designated “affordable”, as well as five acres of gardens and open spaces, a public sports centre, shops and a children’s playground. The 74 apartments in phase one are expected to have price tags ranging from £2 million to £50 million and are scheduled to be completed by 2018. The restoration included the use of Peelaway 1 on the refurbishment of the Victoria road project where the old paint was indicated as a lead based type.

Peelaway® 1 is a water based alkaline paste formulated to safely remove multi-layers of most architectural and domestic paints as well as many industrial coatings containing oil, lead, polyurethane or water from wood, brick, stone, steel, iron, concrete, marble, decorative plaster cornices and plaster walls. will also remove painted wallpaper. Peelaway® 1 can be used on virtually all interior and exterior surfaces, vertical plus overhead and is excellent for intricate, carved and moulded surfaces. The paste is applied by spatula, brush, trowel or sprayed over the surface to be stripped and covered with the Peelaway® poultice blanket for the required time (dwell time). When stripping is complete the blanket, paste and paint are removed with the blanket retaining the stripped paint which may contain toxic particles from the old paint and preventing them becoming airborne.
