Marylebone premises given go ahead for new offices
The Howard de Walden Estate has received planning consent for a refurbishment of its existing Marylebone premises at 23 Queen Anne Street and the adjoining building at 35 Harley Street to create a new head office for its 100-strong team.
This major project, led by the Estate’s in-house team, will produce a contemporary, open plan working environment which aims to inspire colleagues by incorporating forward-thinking approaches to wellbeing and sustainability.
Andrew Hynard, chief executive of The Howard de Walden Estate, has said the new space will “encourage and foster collaboration, creativity and innovation”.
Building work will commence in the first half of 2019 and the project is set to be completed in Q1 of 2021.
In the interim period, The Howard de Walden Estate will relocate to an alternative office nearby, with the Estate’s lettings director, Claire Kennedy leading the search.
Andrew added: “This is a very exciting time for the Estate and we are delighted that through this significant investment in the heart of Marylebone, we will be able to make the fantastic ideas behind this project a reality.
“The project illustrates the Estate’s drive to invest in its people and demonstrates its long-term commitment to the area.
“We aim to create a leading example of what is possible when the very best of today’s technology is integrated into an office building, rich with historic features, to create a workplace that colleagues can be proud of. It is designed to benefit both the team and the occupiers with whom we engage.”
