The development sets a new standard in West End office design and service preparing for the dynamic change that Crossrail will bring to Mayfair in 2018.
The design by HOK architects combines distinctive contemporary architecture with traditional brick and Portland stone faade materials. The Grade-A air conditioned offices were built to the highest specification, spanning five floors, flexibly designed for multi-letting. An imposing entry space includes double height ceilings and three 3.6m bronze portcullis gates, designed by artist Wendy Ramshaw.
The development has strong environmental credentials achieving an 'Excellent' rating by BREEAM.
A retail first
Franck Namani, the leading Parisian-based cashmere specialist, opened its flagship and first UK store in the 7,600 sq ft ground floor retail space in September 2014. The new store outwardly has the appearance of separate womenswear and menswear shops, linked together by the lower ground floor, which features a bar as well as Franck Namani's unique dressing room concept with one size per room.
