The Piccadilly Estate
Plans have been approved to convert Cambridge House at 94 Piccadilly in London’s Mayfair into a grand home. Formerly in use as the Naval & Military Club, (aka “The In & Out Club”) the landmark Grade 1 listed building will be transformed into a residence which will extend over 5,000m², and will house the original 18th Century grand staircase, a 19th Century ballroom, formal receiving rooms and a vast wine cellar. The master suite will extend to 200m² and there will also be a swimming pool, spa, gym, and a garage. Two further related planning applications have also been approved. On the western corner of the site, the 1182m² Grade II listed former American Club will also to be converted back to its original use as a stately home. On the eastern flank the Grade II Listed Green Park Chambers at 90-93 Piccadilly, will be combined with 42 Half Moon Street to provide 6 large lateral apartments, plus retail & restaurant space. The properties were acquired by the Reuben Brothers in 2011, having sat empty and on the Heritage and Risk register since 1999.
The purchase in December 2015 of an adjoining site in Carrington Street, currently let to National Car Parks, will complement RB’s existing portfolio and through considered integration will enlarge the opportunity for RB’s entire Piccadilly estate. The new asset has potential for a major residential scheme with views over Green Park, including possibilities of a hotel, private members club and casino.
Westminster council granted permission in February 2015 to extend and convert this Grade II listed building, within the Mayfair Conservation Area, into a 1,655m 2 single home. The building was previously home to the poet Lord Byron, British journalist and Conservative politician Lord Glensk, and the Duke of Queensbury. The property was originally built in the mid-18th century, and subsequent to its use as office space since the 20th century, is be transformed back to its original status as a grand residence. The approved plans are for an eight-bedroom mansion over seven floors with a swimming pool, sauna, gym, roof terrace and staff quarters.
