St John's Wood Square is a new development on the site of the Barracks in London NW8.

The 5-acre site was once known as the St John’s Wood Barracks and former home to the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery. The project will create a residential area complete with a central avenue, a garden square, a unique swimming pool situated inside the listed Riding School, and high-quality public spaces.

The development will contain 179 homes, of which 59 are designated for affordable rental. Another 41 homes for social rent will be established at a different location in Marylebone.

The historic Riding School building from 1825 will be preserved, becoming a focal amenity space for the entire development.
