Who we are

Grosvenor Britain and Ireland

We are Grosvenor Britain & Ireland – part of a progressive, global property business that has been developing and managing land and property for over 340 years.

Our heartland is here in London’s West End, where we support 9,000 residents, 1,000 businesses and 50,000 workers every day.

To support the future success of the West End we announced a 20-year vision in 2017 to enhance the experience of being in Mayfair and Belgravia for everyone who visits, lives and works in the area backed by a £1 billion rolling investment programme.

We think long-term and aim to give equal weight to the social, environmental and commercial impact of everything that 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. This promise frames our approach to the re-design of Grosvenor Square. Read more about our sustainability commitments here.

The project is led by Ed Green, who is supported by Drew Pinazza and Steve GilchristAmelia Staveley is the Executive Director for this project.

"Our long-term vision means we can deliver real change. Together with a creative team, and a genuine commitment to community participation, we can create something astonishing for London.”

“The beauty of the world’s great squares is their ability to bring people together. At Grosvenor Square we can co-create a model of sustainability and resilience.”

"It is a privilege to be part of this amazing project. We’ve got a first-class team and it is already clear that the future Grosvenor Square will be very special.”
