On previously derelict and underused land on the boundaries of Victoria and Belgravia, we are creating a new hub for creative enterprise and co-working around a new public square. Featuring 19 units for food, fashion, co-working and wellbeing, Eccleston Yards will be a destination that can champion and introduce new and innovative brands. We will establish a community of like-minded businesses and a mix of offers for workers and visitors.
We have secured for Eccleston Yards, amongst others, Barry's Bootcamp. The stylish fitness studio is a powerful, global brand with a vast international following which will attract regular users to this currently underutilised part of London. And we have signed co-working provider, Central Working - the UK-wide network of shared workspaces that supports more than 3,500 businesses of all sizes. Central Working Victoria will help anchor this new hub of enterprise and innovation.
Designed by architects BuckleyGrayYeoman, the buildings and courtyard will offer history, individuality and surprise for retailers and visitors. The heart of the new community will be the dynamic central courtyard which will provide a new, public space.
Charles Howard, Head of Commercial Leasing at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, said: "We want Belgravia to be more flexible, more open and more appealing to everyone. The signing at Eccleston Yards underlines our early commitment to this vision. With our reinvigorated retail and commercial strategy, we can create more active, integrated neighbourhoods with thriving and enterprising businesses of all sizes."
