Grosvenor’s property development activities have their roots in the creation of Mayfair in the 1720s, when new districts began to be created beyond London’s traditional city limits in the then largely rural ‘West End’.
A hundred years later, the creation of Belgravia, a fashionable new quarter of houses, garden squares, streets and crescents in the Regency style, and Pimlico, a new district of terraces built on reclaimed land, established Grosvenor’s reputation for outstanding quality.
In the early 1950s, Grosvenor embarked on its first international development on Vancouver’s Annacis Island – completing over 500 development projects in 113 cities around the world since.
Through an enduring focus on high standards and an emphasis on ambition and innovation, our £4.9bn development pipeline spans predominately residential, office, retail and mixed-use schemes that range in size from a single asset to the master-planning of new communities with over 1,000 new homes.
