Who we are


We make and manage sustainable neighbourhoods in London, Liverpool and across the South of England, where communities, businesses and nature can thrive

Grosvenor Property UK are one part of a global, privately-owned family business that’s been creating and pioneering the creation and adaption of places for over 300 years. That means we act patiently, think long-term, and give equal weight to the social, environmental and commercial impact of everything we do.

We have committed to a decade of action on climate change. By dramatically changing the way places in our portfolio are designed, created and managed, and increasing biodiversity in Mayfair we will become a net zero carbon business in 2030. This commitment frames our approach to the re-design of Grosvenor Square. Read more here.

“We will secure a bright and sustainable future for this celebrated public green space, enhancing its contribution to Mayfair and London.”

Piers Townley

Tonkin Liu

The re-design of Grosvenor Square is being led by architects, Tonkin Liu, who were appointed in February 2020.

“We are Tonkin Liu. For 19 years we have been designing and delivering highly acclaimed buildings, landscapes, and sculptures. Each project is carefully crafted to the context that frames it, the people that occupy it, and the culture that surrounds it”

Tonkin Liu’s team working on this project is led by Anna Liu, Mike Tonkin, Sam Rigby and Catherine Healy.

“We are thrilled to be part of this important moment in time, for the transformation of Grosvenor Square towards a new ecology; a community of people and nature.”


“This is an inspiring project that will reshape an important part of London to suit the contemporary need of our time, whilst bringing people closer to nature within the city.”


“London is defined by its green spaces; this project is a rare and exciting chance to reimagine the historic garden square as an adventurous urban green space.”


“We’re looking forward to taking the garden square into the twenty-first century – this is an incredible opportunity for new ideas to accommodate a diverse range of people.”
