Grosvenor is grounded by its ‘Living cities’ strategy that endeavours to create, invest and manage an inter nationally diversified group of proper ties and places that contribute to the enduring success of cities.
A core asset to this portfolio is the London Estate , first developed in the early 18th century and still actively managed today. Belgravia and Mayfair now have a global reputation, reflecting their position for centuries as being amongst the most desirable residential quarters of London. Today they are truly evolving retail destinations – to maintain that reputation Grosvenor constantly seeks to improve these neighbourhoods, refreshing buildings and nurturing the public realm to actively create a sense of place .
Recognising the quality of the architecture and intimate scale of Motcomb Street, Grosvenor recently undertook a public realm improvement project to prioritise pedestrian access, allow for outdoor seating and future animation of the street. The works extend to Kinnerton Street and in 2018, improvements will also be made to the Halkin Arcade.
The upgrades have allowed for ultrafast broadband to be installed, with free public Wi-Fi access within the area local to the public realm improvements.
