Reuben Brothers Mansion | Mayfair W1

London forum thread: N/A

The Reuben Brothers have just won planning permission to convert the former In and Out club in Mayfair (below) into a mansion. The mansion could then sell for £200 million ($307m).

The most expensive property listed in London is 2 Rutland Gate, for £300 million ($460m). For comparison purposes, the new most expensive property in the United States, the Crespi-Hicks estate, marketed for $135 million.

If only some American cities could do to their housing projects what they are doing in London. Most of these replacements and modernizations are ASTOUNDING!

It's the same as any city though in that these are all fairly central (or in regional centres). They're still building large low density housing estates (projects) on the outskirts. There is always room for the greenbelt rules to be tightened to increase density within Greater London although I believe they've been relaxed during the recession to boost the construction sector. Not a criticism, just an observation

The Kidbrooke Village residential project is situated +12km from the centre of London, and isn't at a regional centre.

Fantastic photos.

At the base of the Heron Tower, on the edge of the development, what are the buildings they are going great lengths to protect (the facade anyway)?

You mean the building with the white coverings on it?

They aren't protecting it. It's being demolished from top down to make way for the second phase of the Heron master plan.

Another tall building, a hotel called Heron Plaza.
