Date 24 Jul 2019

Galliford Try announces that its Building business has been appointed by The Portman Estate to deliver the new AHMM-designed £55m rebuild of 1-4 Marble Arch.

The building, originally built in the 1920s, sits directly opposite the Marble Arch monument itself, in the heart of London’s West End. The project will see the existing façade retained, while behind it a full demolition and rebuild will take place, creating three floors of retail space and a further seven floors of high quality Category A offices.

The project is the second major scheme that Galliford Try has undertaken for The Portman Estate following the successful completion of the award-winning 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018.

Ian Jubb, Managing Director for Galliford Try Building, commented: “Our business has an excellent track record in producing high quality mixed-use schemes throughout London. We are delighted that The Portman Estate has entrusted us once more with such a high-profile scheme in such an iconic location and look forward to working with them to create a memorable destination for the West End.”

Michael Jones, Projects Director at The Portman Estate, said: “Following the success of 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018, we are delighted to confirm that Galliford Try Building has been re-appointed as our delivery partner on our latest direct development, 1-4 Marble Arch.”
