Case Study - 18-22 Wigmore Street, London W1

Part First Floor, Star House Maidenhead
Part First Floor, Star House Maidenhead

Having been located in Wigmore Street, with Piano showroom and concert hall 100 years ago, our historic, International Piano retail and manufacturing clients had a strong desire to purchase premises close to their original home, now the Wigmore Hall.

Very few freehold and virtual freehold properties come to the market in Marylebone and fewer able to secure Vacant Possession of the whole building on Wigmore Street with the floors sizes required.

Chancery House, Sutton

After a period of analytical research, Damian was able to source premises less than 200 feet from their original premises.

Furthermore, the premises were originally built in 1892 by, and for, a piano manufacturer as workshops and showroom with a concert area in the basement, who had been on the site since 1863.

A match made in heaven

Lambourn Commercial negotiated the purchase and put together a team of professional advisers to oversee the redevelopment of the property, which is planned to comprise 12,500 sq ft of offices, showroom, 100 person recital hall, and 13 sound proofed practice rooms over Basement, Ground and First floors plus 4 upper floors to providing 8 new flats.

Appointed by Housing Association clients on the evening prior to demolition of the original premises, Damian had to review and make recommendations to the original design and specification, thereafter attending monthly Contractor and Project Management meetings on this mixed-use development of 108 flats and 62,000 sq. ft. of Office and Industrial premises fronting the Grand Union Canal in what was then a non-trendy part of Kensington and Chelsea.

Having sold this small town centre site in Chertsey to Chase Midland Plc, it was recognised that Damian had a long and in-depth knowledge of the SW M25 office market, developed since 1991. As such we were retained to:

  • Advise on the Design and Specification of the premises, involving regular meetings with architects, mechanical and electrical engineers and monthly site meetings with the contractor throughout the build programme.
  • Upon Completion, implement a marketing campaign, negotiate and successfully lease the premises
  • Advise on and transact a successful investment sale
