Belgravia’s Motcomb Street gets a brave new revamp

Written on 6 November 2017 by Giles Cook in Belgravia

If you haven’t paid Motcomb Street a visit in recent weeks, then we suggest you do so. One of Belgravia’s best-loved streets has undergone a revamp, bursting back onto the social scene as a shopping and food destination.

Belgravia's Motcomb Street gets a brave new revamp

A relaunch party was held at the end of September to celebrate the Motcomb Street opening, and the event was well-attended by shoppers, Belgravia locals, and celebrities alike, including Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing.   

Artisanal food stalls hosted by some of Belgravia’s best-loved food outlets kept peckish attendees happy, with The Good Life Eatery and Rococo Chocolates, among others, making an appearance. Meanwhile, The Pantechnicon is set to reopen next year, which will help turn this otherwise unassuming street in Belgravia into a fashion, retail and food destination.  

Director of Retail at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Joanna Lea, said: “We are delighted to reopen Motcomb Street in this way. Our investment to upgrade the street’s public realm confirms our commitment to the retailers that make this part of our London estate so appealing.” 

Lea continued: “We have a vision to activate neighbourhoods with a better blend of retail, enterprise, luxury and interest that can grow our estate’s appeal to workers, residents and visitors. The revamping of Motcomb Street will help us deliver that vision”.  

Just when you thought Belgravia’s fortunes couldn’t get any brighter – they have.
