Grosvenor Square is set to be London’s premier residential location yet again, and George Barnsdale are helping ensure the properties are in-keeping with the regal reputation.
Located in the heart of Mayfair, Grosvenor Square was once home to the UK’s gentry. Post Second World War, this changed, with many of the elegant Georgian townhouses being converted into offices, embassies and flats.
The garden centrepiece of the square is back in the hands of the Grosvenor Estate. Encompassing the garden square there are a number of exciting projects being undertaken, and Grosvenor Square will soon be home to some of the world’s high end residences.
Twenty Grosvenor Square is a residence like no other. Style, heritage, and the highest quality service come together to create a unique lifestyle. Residences range from 1 to 5-bedroom flats and are scheduled to be completed later this year(2018) .
George Barnsdale have already manufactured 216 timber windows and doors for the project and have now moved on to the neighbouring, 1 Grosvenor Square.
A walk through the park to the East side of the square will take you to the former US Embassy and in later years, the Canadian High Commission, 1 Grosvenor Square which is now in the hands of Lodha UK, who with the help of Mace are converting the property into a luxurious residential scheme.
Comprising of 39 apartments, and five bespoke duplexes, the location also offers state of the art amenities and luxury concierge facilities. Again, George Barnsdale have been chosen on the strength and quality of the products we developed for the initial project at 20 Grosvenor Square, to supply the timber windows and doors for the scheme.
The developments are also less than a mile from a major retail project we recently worked on in Mayfair. This saw us design, and manufacture 37 box and spiral balanced sash windows for the Chanel Flagship store on Bond Street, demonstrating that George Barnsdale are just as adept at manufacturing for luxury residencies as high end retail developments.
