IT’S a fair cop: New Scot­land Yard, the for­mer Met Po­lice HQ in Vic­to­ria, will soon be a dis­tant mem­ory. Northacre, which spe­cialises in de­vel­op­ing fine her­itage build­ings, has sen­tenced the Six­ties block to de­mo­li­tion.

At a launch din­ner in West­min­ster’s Jewel Tower, Northacre de­tailed its plans for a new-build gem for the site, with the help of award-win­ning ar­chi­tects Squire and Part­ners. The Broad­way, above, will have 285 stun­ning flats in six lux­u­ri­ous tow­ers in a new street and land­scaped gar­dens. Three of the tow­ers will be named af­ter three of the world’s finest di­a­monds: The Sancy, The Paragon and The Cul­li­nan. Sur­rounded by palaces and Par­lia­ment, with West­min­ster Abbey as the lo­cal church, the price of even a one-bed­room flat starts from £1.56 mil­lion — so you might have to sell your di­a­monds to buy one.
