BDP has designed proposals to improve the roads surrounding London’s Berkeley Square, with better streets and world-class public realm for all.
Grosvenor, in partnership with Westminster City Council and Lancer, wants to invest £4m to improve the roads surrounding the northern half of Berkeley Square in Mayfair, along the southern boundary of its London estate. The aim is for its estate to work harder for its communities and all Londoners by adapting with better streets and greener spaces.
Our proposals would transform Berkeley Square and its traffic-heavy junction by:
• Significantly widening pavements and doubling overall pavement space for pedestrians;
• Creating safer, more secure and more attractive streets for cycling;
• Replacing uncoordinated traffic signals and pedestrian crossings to improve the experience of those walking and cycling, while improving traffic flow;
• Improving the environment by decluttering unnecessary street objects, planting new trees and installing high quality paving stones and street furniture; and
• Creating a dedicated place for world-class public art installations.
Will Bax, Executive Director - London estate, Grosvenor Britain and Ireland, said: “We have a 20 year vision for this great London estate to adapt at the heart of our global city. We want amongst other things better streets with world class public realm that put the needs of pedestrians and cyclists over motorised traffic. We want this London estate to be more flexible, more open and more appealing to all, and this new investment signals our intent.”
