The Portman Estate and Marylebone’s Revival
The Portman Estate is synonymous with Marylebone. Its Georgian residential architecture nestles within the West End’s commercial centres of Baker Street, Oxford Street and the Edgware Road. The Estate works alongside its residents, occupiers and the public sector to retain the area’s distinct mixed use character and vibrancy as market forces drive towards uniformity.
Simon Loomes, Executive Director has been responsible for the Estate’s strategic development for the past 10 years, working to generate Business Improvement Districts for its commercial streets, public realm interventions to soften the city’s impact and development activity which compliments the historic context. Simon will consider how an Estate’s long term values can continue to influence success of London’s West End.
