Over four years, Grosvenor’s UK property business worked with many Mayfair communities and Londoners, to rethink the role of Grosvenor Square as an extraordinary urban garden, which we believe can have a positive impact on local wellbeing.
To understand the role Grosvenor Square plays in local wellbeing, and the impact a redesign could have, our UK property business commissioned a comprehensive research programme with experts Simetrica-Jacobs and the London School of Economics.
Through this research, and alongside sector leading community engagement, we established a detailed evidence base for drivers of wellbeing around Grosvenor Square, beyond improved access to high quality green space. The table below summarises how the redesign addresses these specific drivers. They were used to guide the design team, ensure that local ambitions are met and improve Grosvenor Square for users. To help set ambitious but credible targets we also benchmarked existing scores against comparable neighbourhoods and places, as well as London and national averages.
