Client story

59 Connaught Street London

Reinvigorating a Grade II listed street in the heart of Central London


Supporting the long-term rejuvenation of London's idyllic Connaught Village

59 Connaught Street, a stone’s throw from London’s iconic Hyde Park and set amongst the upmarket boutiques of Connaught Village, was originally demolished after suffering extensive damage during World War Two bombing, leaving a gap and a harsh reminder of troubled history, on the Grade II listed Connaught Street terrace.

In 2016, the Church Commissioners appointed JLL as Lead Consultants to restore 59 Connaught Street beyond its former glory and complete the rejuvenation of the area. Our Project Management, Cost Management and Neighbourly Matters teams worked tirelessly to manage and deliver a complex redevelopment of the site, involving the initial demolition of remaining basement levels. This was followed by the creation of a stunning three-bedroom maisonette, complete with roof terrace, on the first, second and third levels, as well as retail use at ground level.

With the final piece in the puzzle of the long-term rejuvenation of Central London’s idyllic Connaught Village, we have enabled Church Commissioners’s vision of having a high-value, stunning development at 59 Connaught Street to be realised.
