Reflecting on a Year of Growth
As we bid farewell to 2023, The Langham Estate takes a moment to celebrate the milestones and achievements that have defined our journey in enhancing the West End for people and the planet.
This year has been remarkable, the demand for prime retail, leisure and office space in the West End soared, and we proudly welcomed an array of new occupiers to The Langham Estate, spanning fashion, beauty, wellness, dining, the arts, and many more. Notable additions have included the iconic footwear brand Dr Martens’ 100th EMEA store – its second largest in the UK – modern Mediterranean restaurant Faros, contemporary art galleries Ab Anbar, Schtager & Schch, and Des Bains, ancient art and antiquities specialists, Apollo Galleries, beauty salon Pied de Poule, and salad bar The Salad Project.
Additionally, recognition came our way at the London In Bloom Awards, where 30 Marketplace and Gilmoora House secured a gold award in the ‘Shop Fronts and Workplaces’ category, with Gilmoora House securing the overall category win. This award acknowledged our commitment to biodiversity at workplace destinations across the Estate and the positive impact that nature has on our wellbeing.
Astor Court Hotel, part of The Langham Estate, was also celebrated as Boutique Hotel of the Year 2023 at the Prestige Awards and triumphed in the ‘Hotels and Guesthouses’ category at the London in Bloom 2023 awards.
We are fully committed to reaching our sustainability goals, and the significant addition of Richard Hillyard as Head of Sustainability to our senior team underscores our dedication. Since his arrival, we have made substantial advancements in fulfilling our sustainability objectives, culminating in our membership in the Westminster Sustainability Charter.
In 2024, we look forward to sharing more news and updates on the exciting new brands and businesses joining our community, and on how we are continuing to shape the future of this vibrant part of the West End.
As we close this chapter, we extend our heartfelt wishes to our colleagues, occupiers, clients and partners for a joyous New Year. Here’s to continued growth, sustainability, and success in 2024!
