Rathbone Square

Rathbone Square was awarded to Maylim by Great Portland Estates and principally contracted through Lend Lease.

Overview

All eyes are on Rathbone Square as the first courtyard to be built in the area for over 100 years. With its modern design and high levels of technology it isn’t set to disappoint. The site even houses a car stacker; a robotic system which parks cars automatically and is only the second to be built in the country.

The project consists of two phases - phase one being residential and phase two a public courtyard area. There will be 7 planters built, 3 of which will contain a water channel and weir. As well as this there will be 2 stunning water features and a bespoke drainage system crafted from stainless steel to ensure the contemporary and seamless finish is maintained throughout.

Quality and high end materials have been sourced from across the globe. The hard landscaping elements include Azul Granite paving procured from Spain and the planters and water features will be cladded in honed Picasso Granite, acquired from Canada. Street furniture will also be implemented in the form of cycle stands, benches and tree grilles. A wide variety of large mature trees, shrubs, ferns and vibrant flowers will be planted. There will also be large turfed areas for the public and community to enjoy in the middle of London’s busy West End.
