The Portman Estate has confirmed that Galliford Try is the contractor on the landmark £55m rebuild of 1-4 Marble Arch, as part of Marble Arch Place, in the heart of London’s West End.
Noteworthy architecture firm Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) will retain, but revamp the building’s celebrated 1920’s facade. AHMM is known for their award-winning projects, such as masterplanning the Television Centre, designing Signal Townhouses and White Collar Factory, conservation work for New Scotland Yard, reuse scheme of New Burlington Place among many others.
A full demolition and rebuild will take place behind the facade creating three floors of contemporary retail space and a further seven floors of high quality, conscience office space providing over 95,000 sq ft as a new London HQ hub.
The project is the second major scheme that Galliford Try has undertaken for The Portman Estate following the successful completion of 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018.
The active redevelopment pipeline in Marble Arch, which includes Marble Arch Place by Almacantar and Multiplex with The Portman Estate and Regent House by Native Land and Osbourne with The Portman Estate, demonstrates the prosperity of this popular area of central London, as well as the market’s desire to call Marble Arch home for its brands and offices.
“Our business has an excellent track record in producing high quality mixed-use schemes throughout London. We are delighted that The Portman Estate has entrusted us once more with such a high-profile scheme in such an iconic location and look forward to working with them to create a memorable destination for the West End.
Ian Jubb, Managing Director for Galliford Try Building
“Following the success of 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018, we are delighted to confirm that Galliford Try Building has been re-appointed as our delivery partner on our latest direct development, 1-4 Marble Arch.”
