3 Savile Row, Mayfair
Development and lease out of grade II listed building in central London
Kier purchased this grade II* listed building situated on Savile Row in the heart of Westminster in November 2007.
Savile Row, “The Golden Mile of tailoring” is located in Mayfair in London’s West End and is famous for housing some of the world’s most bespoke tailors. It is located close to some of the best known international retailing brands such as Burberry, Tiffany & Co and Apple. The Iconic property was built in 1733 and has had an interesting history, where the Bowler Hat was invented in 1850, and where in 1969, the Beatles famously held their last performance on the rooftop of Apple Corps offices. In February 2008, Kier was granted planning permission to extend the building. In August 2011, Kier signed Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) to take the whole property, approximately 14,000 sq ft, on a 20 year lease and in September 2011, received planning permission to change the use of the lower ground, ground, first and second floors to a retail use, as part of the lease deal with A&F to accommodate their new kids flagship store.
Scope of Works:
Purchase of iconic Beatles building
Extension to existing building to form 14,000sq ft of retail space
Building now leased to Abercrombie & Fitch
