Cadogan has signed successful restaurateur Bill Granger to George House.
Granger & Co is due to open in late Spring 2017 and will complement the new retail mix brought to the Pavilion Road aspect of George House. The destination restaurant will join the Road’s new independent artisans including a butcher, baker, greengrocer and cheesemonger to enhance Chelsea’s ‘village’ feel.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of Cadogan commented: “Granger & Co is the perfect new addition to Pavilion Road. Its relaxed all-day dining is exactly the right fit for the neighbourhood and I’m sure will fast become a Chelsea favourite.”
Bill Granger said: “I’ve always wanted to open a restaurant in Chelsea, and have been looking for a site for the last ten years, so I jumped at the chance to be a part of Pavilion Road. It’s a food shopping destination with a village feel, and just what I have been waiting for. With Bread Ahead, London Cheesemongers, Natoora and our local butcher from Notting Hill, Provenance as our neighbours, we’re in great company.”
The George House development is part of Cadogan’s on-going stewardship of the area and the Estate’s place-making strategy, which looks to maintain and continually enhance Chelsea as one of the world’s best places in which to live, shop, visit and work. It also includes new contemporary luxury retail on Sloane Street (already now home to flagships for international brands Delpozo, Giorgio Armani, Boutique 1 and Red Valentino), in addition to a new public courtyard with lush planting and KXU, a boutique gym and spa opening in Autumn 2017.

Cadogan has signed a lease with KXU (KX Urban) at George House.
The exclusive health club operator will provide the perfect addition to the six new luxury stores, already home to UK flagships for international brands Delpozo, Giorgio Armani, Boutique 1 and Red Valentino.
Alongside these retail units, George House comprises a public outdoor courtyard with lush planting, informal café April’s, destination restaurant (to be announced shortly) and office space.
Further small shops have been created to the rear on Pavilion Road – now let to independent food artisans including a butcher, baker, greengrocer and cheesemonger to enhance Chelsea’s ‘village’ feel.
KX Urban is the first of its kind from the long established local health club operator. KXU will be a non-membership fitness and wellbeing hub and will occupy 7,665 sq ft in George House, accessed from Pavilion Road through the Corso Como inspired courtyard. Due to open in Autumn 2017, it will include three studios offering a varied range of group fitness classes, spa and nutrition bar.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of Cadogan said: “KX Urban is a great addition to George House and the wider area, providing more diversity for those who live and work here, or are just visiting. Combined with the new restaurants and breadth of retail from a cheesemonger to couture fashion, it further strengthens Chelsea as one of the world’s most inspiring and desirable neighbourhoods.”
Peter Dubens, Owner, KX, adds: “We’re excited to be bringing an innovative business model to our local community and the wider fitness market with all facilities open on a ‘drop in, pay as you go’ basis. The whole experience, including some unique classes, will see KXU as the destination for London’s health goers.”

The five artisan shops, situated to the rear of the new George House at 131 Sloane Street, will be joined by further skilled independents and a soon to be announced destination restaurant, which will overlook a ‘hidden’ courtyard garden inspired by Corso Como, Milan.
The five shops include a traditional family butcher, Provenance, fine wine shop, Pavilion Wine, bakery and school Bread Ahead, Natoora, a greengrocer offering a range of fresh seasonal produce and London Cheesemongers, who specialise in sourcing traditional produced cheeses.
All shops will be open by the end of the year 2016.
In summer of 2015, Cadogan held a public consultation to find out what the residents wanted to see in the neighbourhood. More than 75% of the respondents thought independently owned shops selling quality produce would enhance Chelsea’s village feel and benefit the local community.
Hugh Seaborn, CEO of Cadogan said:
“We spent over a year actively seeking the right ‘artisans’ who would become part of the community – small, independently run shops that deliver a richer experience and enhance Chelsea’s village feel. We had clear direction of residents’ desires for shops that serve local people, so we deliberately sought leaders in their field to meet these requirements. Pavilion Road is already home to some of the best independent fashion and beauty operators, and with an exciting restaurant soon to be announced, these new additions will add further vibrancy and character to the area.”
Tom Gibson, owner of Provenance, commented:
“Chelsea's bustling heart is Sloane Square, and to be so close to the action is an exciting prospect for all of us at Provenance. The sense of history in Chelsea, combined with the beautiful streets and houses, and the eclectic mix of nationalities makes for a perfect place to become part of a renewed food movement in the area.
“The Cadogan Estate's longstanding knowledge of the area combined with their vision to create a genuine village feel in Pavilion Road was also an opportunity we could not turn down. After all, every village needs a good butcher at its heart.”
Jared Wybrow, Director at London Cheesemongers, said:
“We are very excited to be launching our first bricks and mortar to the discerning people of Chelsea. Our range of cheeses covers familiar produce as well as some new and exciting choices. We are immensely proud of our seasonal and evolving selection and aim to educate as well as impress with accurate, transparent and honest information for our customers.”
Matt Jones, Founder of Bread Ahead, commented:
“We’re very excited to bring Bread Ahead to Pavilion Road. We can’t wait to get to know our neighbours, locals and visitors to the area, and are thrilled to be able to open our second bakery school here, teaching the masses everything from the perfect sourdough to our famous doughnuts!”
Tim Ballard, Natoora Brand Director, said:
“We are excited to be building on the area’s reputation for food and ingredient shopping and joining other producers on Pavilion Road in bringing the best-tasting produce to the area.”
Tomasz Kuszneruk, Manager of Pavilion Wine, commented:
“Since our recent opening on Pavilion Road, we have met so many friendly locals, many of whom are already becoming regulars in our new store. We always ensure our offering to customers includes adventurous new wines which go hand in hand with our wine room, a popular place for consumers to relax and take in one of our art exhibitions.”
The new stores are a part of the plan helping Cadogan maintain and continually enhance Chelsea as one of the world’s best places in which to live, shop, visit and work.

Cadogan has announced a major office letting at its landmark development ‘131 Sloane Street’ to global alternative asset management group, Marshall Wace.
Marshall Wace will be the development’s single office occupier, taking 43,000 sq ft across 5 floors. Possession will be taken upon the development’s completion in late 2015, when they will move from current offices in WC2.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of Cadogan said, “We had significant interest in the office space at 131 Sloane Street well ahead of marketing. This reflects the strength of demand across London and increasing desire for businesses to provide a great lifestyle location for their staff. We have further new and refurbished office space completing in 2015 and are very optimistic for the office market in Chelsea.”
131 Sloane Street spans over 100,000 ft2 (9,290 m2) in total and is situated towards the Sloane Square end of the street, opposite luxury flagship stores such as Chloe and Emilia Wickstead and near to the Royal Court Theatre and Saatchi Gallery. Award-winning architects Stiff + Trevillion have designed a stunning building to complement the historical significance and elegance of Sloane Street while offering cutting-edge, contemporary space for office and retail occupiers. Aside from the 5 floors of BREEAM ‘excellent’ rated office space, it comprises 3 floors of retail (33,000 ft2) - 6 new flagship retail stores on Sloane Street with further artisan retail space to the rear on Pavilion Road, set to become a new ‘village heart’ for Chelsea with independent food specialists such as a local butcher, baker, deli, cheese shop or wine merchant. At the heart of the development is an open-air courtyard, inspired by Corso Como in Milan and set to become a lush green space housing a new neighbourhood restaurant.
The development is part of Cadogan’s long-term vision for Sloane Street. A multi-million pound programme of initiatives to enhance the destination is underway and due for completion in 2020.
