  2. Close Brothers advance to Mayfair

    22 March 2019
    After receiving competing offers from organisations in the financial sector, we have agreed the letting of the third floor at 55 Grosvenor Street to the UK merchant bank Close Brothers on behalf of our client Capital and City.
    In the heart of Mayfair at the corner of Grosvenor Street and Davies Street, this newly refurbished office was always assured a high quality audience, but the securing of a blue chip company of the calibre of Close Bothers represents a particularly excellent result - and something of a coup - for both landlord and tenant alike.

    The space that Close Brothers have chosen for their new West End operation extends to 4,400 ft2 of comprehensively refurbished office space in an exceptional and surprising building behind a lovingly preserved Georgian facade: Portland stone, London bricks and a tall mansard roof give nothing away of the boutique office building within with facilities including a refurbished reception lobby, 2 x 9 passenger lifts, shower facilities and cycle parking. 

    With one of the most desirable locations in London - rubbing shoulders with Claridges, Le Petit Maison and The Connaught - 55 Grosvenor Street’s blending of original character and a contemporary specification seems a perfect fit for Close Brothers: the group’s tagline, Modern Merchant Banking, neatly encapsulates the idea of an innovative operation within a long-established environment.
