Sir Robert McApline has been appointed by Grosvenor to build its latest Mayfair development, a 40,000 sq ft office at 18-20 Grosvenor Street.
The project is worth about £20m and will include two retail units at 18 Grosvenor Street and 20 Brook’s Mews. It is due for completion in early 2015.
The office development will cover six floors with floor plates ranging from 4,000 sq ft to 7,800 sq ft.
The project is part of Grosvenor’s Mayfair office pipeline totalling 170,000 sq ft, which includes other schemes on Grosvenor Street and two on Davies Street.
Grosvenor received original planning permission for comprehensive redevelopment of the site in 2004 but put the project on hold in 2008 as the recession took hold.
Permission was renewed that year and work was expected to start at the end of 2011 to finish in 2013.
Sir Robert McAlpine main board director and regional manager for London and South-east Vince Corrigan said the project would build on the firm’s “long-standing relationship with Grosvenor on its London estate”.
