The Garrison Club is the amenity offering that includes the Spa, Business Suite and Residents Lounge. The Spa was designed by Goddard Littlefair London and dressed by Elicyon. The Business Suite and Residents Lounge were dressed by Elicyon.
Consent for the designs by architects Squire and Partners was granted in May 2014. The three blocks that make up phase 1 contain 74 apartments that range in size from 1 to 6 bedrooms. This phase will also provide a cafe on the corner of block 1 to help animate the new public entrance to the site on Pimlico Road.
The 74 apartments in phase one were expected to have price tags ranging from £2 million to £50 million, reported Evening Standard in March 2015 when construction started on site.
The 1st Phase completed in 2019.
Detailed design proposals for Phase 2, by architects Paul Davis + Partners, were submitted to Westminster City Council in May 2014 and consent was granted for the designs in August 2014. Phase 2 consists of 15 townhouses divided into two blocks which are 4 storeys at the front and 5 storeys to the rear, as the designs include a sunken rear garden. Some of the properties will have summerhouses in their rear garden.
Detailed design proposals for Phase 3A, by architects Ben Pentreath and Associates, were submitted to Westminster City Council in late August 2014. This phase consists of 2 blocks, one of which will be a mews house and another which will be a restaurant and delicatessen, forming one side of a new public square. It is intended to temporarily use Phase 3A as a marketing suite and show apartment while the rest of the site is being constructed. A separate application has been made to Westminster City Council for this use.

To the north, at the rear of Phase 5b, sits a row of Georgian townhouses running along St. Barnabas Street.

Buildings 18 and 19 by Eric Parry Architects reflect the consented composition of Phase 4 and are 6 storeys in height with an additional two-storey penthouse set back at the upper level.
