Dudley House is Westminster City Council's largest ever design & build development and a blueprint for how the public sector can harness its strengths to deliver affordable homes and community infrastructure within a constrained urban location.

Every inch of available space has been maximised within this 22-storey residential tower to provide 197 much-needed homes at London Living rent for people living or working in Westminster. However, Dudley House is more than new homes. Neatly designed within this small urban footprint at the centre of Paddington Basin is a 7-storey secondary school - a permanent home for Marylebone Boys' School, which had spent its first four years in several temporary locations.

The ambition does not stop there. Also, the facility gives a new lease of life for the local Central Pentecostal Church, replacing an outdated and inefficient building, as well as new retail units.

Dudley House is a key ingredient of Westminster City Council's ‘Fairer Westminster’ programme to connect communities, a vision realised by the council’s partnership with Child Graddon Lewis.

“I’m overjoyed at having a purpose-built premises with dedicated amenities for the first time. It’s a marked improvement on our tired, former house conversion, which was spread over three floors rather than one. We are absolutely delighted and it means the world to each and every member of the Church.” — William Morson, Pastor, Central Pentecostal Church
