NO.1 GROSVENOR SQUARE
Originally the US Embassy, and later the Canadian High Commission, No.1 Grosvenor Square is now being transformed into 44 luxury residences. Brimming with period details, the neo-Georgian façade has been lovingly restored to its former glory, alongside the Oval Room – a replica of the White House original. Amenities are impressive, featuring a pool, spa, club room, cinema and even a team of Sotheby’s experts, on hand to help residents curate an enviable art collection. Residents will also have access to a Bentley – a homage to the 1920s Le Mans racers, the Bentley Boys, who once lived on the corner of Grosvenor Square. No.1 Grosvenor Square is due for completion in late 2019.
