Bond Street’s new streetscape makes headlines

The £10 million transformation to Bond Street’s streetscape, incorporating a new public square and more space for pedestrians, has been covered by a variety of media outlets.

London Evening Standard wrote:

‘A £10 million programme of improvements to the Bond Street area of Mayfair to make it more welcoming to pedestrians was unveiled today.

Changes include pavement widening and a “decluttering” of street signs.

Two-way traffic flow has also been introduced on Davies Street and Brook Street and a new public square opened at the corner of Old Bond Street and Burlington Gardens.

The 18-month programme is described as the biggest overhaul of the West End’s best know luxury shopping street in more than 30 years.

Since the improvement scheme began in April last year an estimated £50 million has also been invested by businesses in the Bond Street area. This has been through 10 store openings, by brands such as Chloe, Stella McCartney, Hublo, Alaia and Pomellato, and seven major store refurbishments, including Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Chopard and Piaget.’
