The 25,160m² nine storey, mixed use development comprises of 54 luxury new-build homes and two storeys of exclusive boutiques and restaurants befitting of this one and only true London village. The formalities were concluded with filling the last bit of the top concrete slab.
Chris Murray, Managing Director of Concord London, said: “This topping out ceremony represents a very significant moment for both Marylebone Square and Marylebone as a whole as we are creating a whole new centre to an already bustling area full of amazing restaurants, shops and people.
We have seen an impressive number of sales here at Concord as buyers see Marylebone as both a safe and smart investment in addition to being a wonderful place to live.”
Terry Hui, Chairman, Concord Pacific Group of Companies, said: “This project has been a storybook opportunity and was born from a serendipitous series of events. We know how important this site is to Marylebone and W1 and we intend to pay homage to the site’s history by meticulously delivering high quality apartments and hosting only the best stores and eateries.”
Marylebone Square is positioned on an entire city block that has been vacant for over half a century and is now over 50% sold with many purchases coming from existing Marylebone residents. Due to the strong sense of community, many residents have purchased at Marylebone Square as they wish to remain part of this strong tight knit community known for its village feel. Local buyers are also confident in the long term potential of investing in Marylebone as the property market acts as a micro-market, often bucking prime central London trends with its continued price growth, strong demand and low stock.
Designed by award-winning architect Simon Bowden of E8 Architecture, Marylebone Square offers a range of spacious homes, from one to three bedroom apartments, and 12 breath-taking two and three-bedroom penthouses. The design has focused on a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living and many homes come with terraces and verandas, offering spectacular views. The scheme reflects the best of old world Georgian architectural detail while employing the finest in modern conveniences. The development also boasts the new Marylebone Hall, a space specifically designed for wider community use.
The development’s unique design is centered around a soaring five storey atrium. This naturally ventilated atrium allows an abundance of air and natural sunlight to flow through the core of the building. The atrium is capped with stunning glazed panels that are open to the natural air. Residents will enjoy improved air quality that is distributed by the state of the art airflow system.
