Description of Cundy Street Quarter
Cundy Street Quarter is a proposed residential-led, mixed-use development in Belgravia, London SW1.
The proposed new development will create:
- 93 affordable homes
- Senior living for up to 170 people
- 70 homes for sale.
- A cinema, a small food store, cafés, restaurants and flexible community space designed with local neighbours.
- A greener environment with new public spaces: 65 additional trees and 56,000 sqft of green space across the neighbourhood, equivalent to the size of 20 tennis courts. Over £2 million would be invested in Ebury Square to improve the landscaping and introduce a new play area.
- More sustainable buildings that are cheaper for residents to run: Producing 90% less carbon – equivalent to planting 3,500 trees per year – and reducing water usage by up to 45%.
Kylestrome House, Lochmore House, Laxford House, Stack House, and Walden House will be demolished.
The land owned by Grosvenor Estate Belgravia is currently occupied by five residential buildings with leases expiring from 2021.

The 1.77-hectare site is partially bordered by Ebury Street, Cundy Street and Pimlico Road in Belgravia.
Work on-site is expected to start in late 2021.
