Grosvenor Square: creating a haven in the city
Lying in the heart of Mayfair, Grosvenor Square has a rich history that can be traced back to the 1720s. Over the past 300 years it has constantly evolved and changed. But today the capital’s second
largest square provides limited benefit to Londoners, their well-being and the environment.
We took back responsibility for the square from the Government in 2018. Since then, we have built a shared vision for its future together with the community. This aims to enhance its contribution to Mayfair and London by making it more sustainable and welcoming.
We have appointed architects and are commencing an extensive community engagement programme to develop a design that will allow Grosvenor Square to re-establish itself as London’s most outstanding green space and a haven in the city.
