Tuesday 13th of August marked the topping out of The Beaumont Hotel at 8 Balderton Street. The hotel is a joint venture between Grosvenor, who has led on the development of the hotel and operator Corbin & King Hotels Limited. Construction of The Beaumont Hotel began in 2011 and completion is scheduled for summer 2014.

The Beaumont is the first five-star hotel to open on Grosvenor’s Mayfair estate in the last decade, and the first time that restaurateurs Corbin & King have entered the luxury hotel market.

The bespoke hotel comprises 73 bedrooms and suites as well as public areas including a restaurant and lobby bar, residents’ lounge, meeting room and spa, which will offer first class amenities in a central area of London, North Mayfair.

The topping out of The Beaumont Hotel follows the recent completion of public realm works on North Audley Street, Duke Street and the opening of the redeveloped Brown Hart Gardens, which the new hotel overlooks. Grosvenor’s on-going investment in North Mayfair reflects the wider vision for the area, to create an exciting destination for people to live in, work in and visit.

Ian Morrison, Development Director for Grosvenor’s London estate said: “The topping out of The Beaumont Hotel is an important milestone for us and illustrates Grosvenor’s ability to deliver exceptional schemes that reflect the history of the area and are architecturally interesting. The Beaumont is a key part of the place making strategy for North Mayfair and I am delighted to be marking this key milestone today and look forward to the hotel opening next year.”

The hotel will feature the first inhabitable work of art by leading British artist Antony Gormley, a sculpture which doubles as a unique guestroom for the hotel, to be unveiled in early 2014. The incorporation of Antony Gormley’s sculpture into the function of the hotel reflects the exceptional standards set by The Beaumont Hotel and the uniqueness of the offering.

Grosvenor and Corbin & King have been working with contractor Chorus on the redevelopment of the landmark 1920’s neo classical, grade II listed building. It has been designed by Reardon Smith Arcihtects, whose previous work includes the Four Seasons on Park Lane, The Savoy and Claridge’s.

Featured in December 2011 issue of Vogue:
"Until recently this inaspicious location in Mayfair housed a car park. But, as the site of Chris Corbin and Jeremy King's new luxury hotel, it should fast become London's most fashionable address 2012."
