Seeing REDD: Mayfair Times

REDD, the London-Monaco luxury property company, has received planning permission from Westminster City Council for Mayfair’s first ‘Covid-19 compliant’ mixed-use development. At 82 Mount Street, the 10,000 sq ft scheme with Covid- 19 safeguarding and home-working features, offers a luxury-brand ground floor retail boutique, lower ground floor offices and five upper floors, providing lateral apartments and a penthouse. The property is a landmark freehold end-of-terrace Victorian mansion, on the corner of Mount Street and Balfour Place. Construction will start this autumn with completion due late 2021. It will feature a spacious residents’ lobby, accessed from Mount Street. The concierge will be set back to allow for social distancing and the latest technology will be applied throughout the development to minimise physical touch points as much as possible. REDD is also looking at contactless fobs and voice recognition systems to provide apartment owners access to both the main entrance and their private apartments. In both the communal areas and private apartment living spaces, it is looking to make finishes and surfaces from anti-viral materials, and install special air filtration systems for the apartments to ensure the highest standards of health and safety.
