The proposed penthouse at Rankin House is over 2,500 Square feet but doesn't have any regard for the Victorian warehouse is sits upon. A newly built roof top extension on Bell yard mews of 1,950 Square feet is on the market at the moment for £2.9 Million so this proposal will clearly be hugely valuable but at the expense of building it sits upon.
However the Bell yard mews penthouse was on a modern building not created by damaging a Victorian warehouse and not created when conservation bodies have urged that the changes not be made as they will damage the building. This is what's proposed.
You can see on Southwark's website more plans showing its impact.
