Westminster Labour Councillors have put forward a bold new plan to convert the vacant Debenham’s department store into ‘The Oxford Street Art House’.
The future of Oxford Street is a key economic issue for Westminster, London and the country’s economy.
Debenhams store is closed and the building is now empty.
To attract shoppers and tourists back, Oxford Street will need something special and unique. This is where ‘Oxford Street Art House’ comes from, a new art gallery in the heart of London.
Councillor Pancho Lewis, Labour Councillor for West End Ward, said:
“Every indication is that in a post-covid world Oxford Street is not going to return to what it was like before. Our plan for Debenham’s would help breathe life back into the area by creating a new dynamic centre with arts, leisure, educational and entertainment uses that could be enjoyed by all.”
