From Seven Dials Estate Conserevation Area Statement "The prevailing scale of the street is broken at the south eastern junction of Neal Street and Shorts Gardens by Nottingham House a neo-Georgian block of flats designed in 1925. The original five storey block and the rear yard and mission hall were converted in 1997/8 into a mixed use development with shops at ground floor level, an additional floor of flats and a new mission hall. The development improved the street scene, particularly to Nottingham Court. Designed by the Peabody Design Group the scheme received a Civic Trust Award 2000."
