Qatari Diar breaks ground at former Mayfair U.S Embassy

Developer Qatari Diar Europe has broken ground at 30 Grosvenor Square – the former site of the historic U.S Embassy.

The site will house London’s second Rosewood hotel in the heart of Mayfair and will comprise 137 guest rooms, five restaurants, six flagship retail units, a spa and a ballroom with space for 1,000 guests.

British architect, Sir David Chipperfield, will has been entrusted with preserving the unique facade of the Grade II listed building whilst at the same time remodelling the interiors with contemporary and luxurious finishes. The expected construction completion date of the property valued at approximately £1 billion is set for 2023.

Work on the site follows the relocation of the U.S Embassy to Nine Elms earlier this year.
