Kajima Properties have completed work on The Grove a refurbished 25,000 sq.ft office development in Marylebone. Jackson Coles acted as cost consultant on the project, which was designed by AHMM.

Grove House was initially developed as offices in the 1980s and enjoys a prominent position at the corner of Marylebone Road and Lisson Grove in central London. The seven-storey postmodern building was in need of refurbishment, and has been transformed by AHMM to create a contemporary, sustainable and flexible working environment. The Grove has secured an EPC level ‘B’ and a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’.

New glazing, elegant ceilings and completely new services have transformed the office floors, and the old plant room on the roof has been transformed into a stunning glazed penthouse office suite. The reception area features “Earning My Stripes” - a two storey art installation by graphic artist Morag Myerscough.

DTZ and Edward Charles & Partners are letting The Grove on behalf of Kajima Properties.

John Harcourt, Development Manager at Kajima said:

“The Grove demonstrates Kajima’s commitment to sustainability and high quality design principles, and offers occupiers a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ office finished to the highest standards yet at a significant discount to Mayfair rents.”

Gary Stoakes, Partner at Jackson Coles said:

“Once again we have partnered with AHMM on a great commercial project. It has been a pleasure to work with Kajima Properties, and we’re proud of the part we have played to deliver an outstanding office development in a prime West End location.”

Paul Monaghan, Director, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris said:

“We are delighted to have worked with Kajima Properties and Jackson Coles to rejuvenate Grove House into a contemporary commercial office space befitting its prominent London location.”
