St Martins Courtyard
St Martins Courtyard is a new retail, office and restaurant destination in Covent Garden for Longmartin Properties, a joint venture between Shaftesbury PLC and the Mercers Company who combined their property holdings to revitalise a large block of properties, bounded by Long Acre and Upper St Martins Lane.
MRP were commissioned to prepare a strategic plan for this city block which consists of offices, car parking, shops, bars, restaurants, a nightclub and over 40 residential units.
MRP’s strategy created a new thoroughfare through the heart of the site with restaurants, bars and shops creating a vibrant dynamic route to a public square and new pedestrian routes to adjoining streets.
MRP’s redevelopment of Kingly Court influenced the strategy for this previously underdeveloped area of Covent Garden. Maximising the potential of existing properties by providing high quality new developments and enhancing the public spaces between buildings.
