Concord London appoints Kier to deliver Marylebone Square £106m mixed-use scheme

Concord London has appointed Kier to deliver Marylebone Square, a £106m mixed-use scheme in Central London on the site of the former Moxon Street carpark and the last whole city block in the W1 postcode to be developed.

The 25,160m² project will see the creation of a nine-storey building comprising of five residential floors above ground floor and a three-storey basement. It will comprise of 54 private apartments and 25 affordable apartments situated across the five upper floors, with the ground and lower ground floors providing retail, restaurant and community facilities including a community hall, which will house the popular farmers market each Sunday. The lowest basement level will include parking for residents and plant space, with the B1 level providing a new public parking facility.

The building has been designed in the style of a contemporary interpretation of a classic London mansion block that seamlessly blends into its historic surroundings. The external envelope consists of a bespoke ceramic cladding with a range of glazes across the elevations, with cast aluminium balustrading and feature frieze detailing.

Marylebone Square will also include a central external courtyard that allows daylight into the building, whilst providing a covered, naturally ventilated space providing residents with protection from adverse weather conditions.

The project is scheduled to complete in summer 2023 and almost a third of the apartments have already been sold.

Liam Cummins, Group managing director for Kier Construction, said: 'This is an exciting project for us to be appointed to deliver and it draws on both our technical excellence and experience of delivering large scale, mixed-use schemes in London. This appointment is testament to our collaborative relationship with Concord London and its consultant partners. We look forward to successfully delivering this project and creating a lasting legacy in Marylebone as part of our growing portfolio of projects in London.'

Chris Murray, managing director of Concord London, said: 'Marylebone Square is a truly significant milestone for us as a company. We look forward to working alongside Kier to deliver a first class development that will combine beautiful architecture, high quality finishes and the latest technology to create exceptional homes for residents and a superb new retail destination for the local community. The strong sales trajectory seen so far is a fantastic indicator of interest in this project and we look forward to progressing with the build.'
