AN opportunity to create an extraordinary urban garden with ground-breaking environmental credentials
After Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Grosvenor Square is the second largest square in London – at 2.5 hectares its open laws areenjoyed by local residents and office workers as well as visitors looking to escape the West End crowds.
At the heart of Mayfair, Grosvenor Square has a rich history that can be traced back to 1726. When created, it was the first of its kind in London and caused a sensation. Local residents and visitors marvelled at its wonderful, classically-inspired landscaping. A piece of the country in the city.
Almost three centuries on, we want to reawaken this sense of wonder and secure a bright and sustainable future for this celebrated public green space.
This will enable us to not only enhance local biodiversity and air quality but better reflect the capital’s character and help Grosvenor Square once again become one of its most outstanding green spaces.
