Overview

Marylebone Square is a new mixed-use development on 0.34 hectares (0.83 acres) by Concord London in Marylebone, London W1.

The redevelopment of Moxon Street Car Park in Marylebone was completed in December 2023.

The site provides high-quality residential units both for private sale and affordable housing, as well as a restaurant, retail, leisure and community use. The scheme will also provide the popular local Farmer's Market.

New Apartments For Sale
The development offers 54 one, two and three-bedroom apartments for private sale.

Affordable Homes
The 25 affordable homes will have a separate entrance from Aybrook Street.

Amenities
- Community Hall, which preserves the local farmers’ market.
- Unique selection of carefully chosen boutiques and restaurants.
- 24-hour concierge. The concierge desk is made of York stone, adding to the elegant palette of stone, timber, and bronze in the lobby.
- At the heart of the building is a five-level, glass-canopied courtyard that forms the architectural centrepiece of Marylebone Square. The courtyard is paved with granite and lined with tall-stemmed, silver birch trees, providing a sanctuary away from the hubbub. An elliptical lily pond in the courtyard adds to the sense of solace and quietude.

Architecture

Designed by E8 Architecture, Marylebone Square is an impressive mix of both modern and classic London architectural styles. Its facade, adorned with glazed terracotta and robust cast metal balustrades, exudes an elegant and contemporary charm. The building stands out with a unique lantern frieze embellishing the penthouses, a design element deeply rooted in Marylebone's rich musical heritage.

The architecture is consistent and robust, focusing on small details reflecting traditional craftsmanship. A standout feature is a glass-canopied courtyard, filled with tall birch trees and a peaceful lily pond, providing a quiet haven in the city's heart.

Adding to the experience are the panoramic lifts, which offer views of the courtyard. An advanced airflow system circulates fresh air between the apartments and the outdoors, ensuring a seamless transition for the residents.

The entrance, featuring a wide canopy, is reminiscent of London's grand hotels. The interior welcomes with stone, timber, and bronze tones. A friendly concierge is available 24/7 at a stone desk in the lobby, and the sight of greenery beyond invites visitors towards the courtyard, setting a calm tone for the rest of the building.

History

In 1966, the London County Council acquired a plot of land that was formerly occupied by a charming row of Victorian houses. This tract originally fell under the extensive dominion of The Howard de Walden Estate, an entity that, to this day, possesses much of Marylebone's infrastructure. The Victorian houses met their end following a compulsory purchase order intended to make way for a primary school, a vision that ultimately never materialised.

For a span of approximately fifty years, this parcel of land remained unutilised. It was managed by various governmental organisations, briefly serving as a commercial car park and a hub for the local farmers’ market. In 1991, stewardship was transferred to the Westminster City Council, albeit with a restriction - the land could not be sold before the 31st of August 2011 without the explicit approval of the Secretary of State for Education.

Throughout the years, numerous proposed designs for the site were rebuffed. Some were considered aesthetically incompatible with the local architecture, others failed to cater to community needs. The blueprint for Marylebone Square eventually struck the right chord - it preserved the cherished farmers’ market within a versatile community hall, proposed a unique array of boutiques and restaurants, and planned for an array of luxury residences.

This transformation from a vacant urban plot to a meticulously designed neighbourhood square represents an unprecedented opportunity for residents, businesses, and the local community. Marylebone Square not only embodies the traditional charm of the London mansion block but also restores a forgotten street pattern, reintroducing vibrancy and activity to a unique, sought-after space.

Work on the Marylebone Square development commenced in 2018, marking the beginning of a monumental metamorphosis set to redefine this slice of London's historic landscape.

2016 January - Planning permission for:
Erection of a building including excavation works to provide three basement storeys and six above ground storeys for mixed-use purposes including up to 79 residential units, retail shops, restaurants, multi-purpose community hall, community space, cycle and car parking, servicing, landscaping, plant and other works. Westminster Council ref. no. 14/10918/FULL.

1966 - The mid-late 18th-century terrace was demolished and turned into a car park.
