Galliford Try has been confirmed as contractor by The Portman Estate to deliver a £55m rebuild of 1-4 Marble Arch in the heart of London’s West End.

Designs from architect AHMM will see the 1920s building revamped behind a retained facade.

A full demolition and rebuild will take place behind the facade creating three floors of retail space and a further seven floors of high quality offices.

The project is the second major scheme that Galliford Try has undertaken for The Portman Estate following the successful completion of 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018.

Ian Jubb, Managing Director for Galliford Try Building, said: “Our business has an excellent track record in producing high quality mixed-use schemes throughout London.

“We are delighted that The Portman Estate has entrusted us once more with such a high-profile scheme in such an iconic location and look forward to working with them to create a memorable destination for the West End.”

Michael Jones, Projects Director at The Portman Estate, added: “Following the success of 1-9 Seymour Street in 2018, we are delighted to confirm that Galliford Try Building has been re-appointed as our delivery partner on our latest direct development, 1-4 Marble Arch.”
