Popular London nightclub G-A-Y Late could be disrupted as its parental building announced plans to redevelop it. Under plans proposed by building owners RDI Reit, three additional floors and a new facade will be grafted onto the offices above the late-night institution. The Soho club had asked Westminster City Council to impose conditions on the refurbishment to ensure that it would continue to work on its usual basis, but the planning committee rejected this request and insisted on redevelopment. The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan’s office confirmed that they are in touch with G-A-Y and the council “to ensure there is minimal disruption to the venue from the planned redevelopment.” G-A-Y initially requested protections in a public comment submitted on March 6. In it, G-A-Y’s owners reported being told that works could force the club to close “anywhere between six to 18 months,” most likely from summer 2021.
