The Chancery Rosewood
The Chancery Building, at 24-31 Grosvenor Square, London is one of London’s most coveted addresses as it used to be US embassy site in Mayfair and its Grade 2 listed for its historical importance.
When the US decided to construct a new embassy building in London, plans were set in motion to re-purpose the iconic listed building in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, which had previously served as the US Embassy Chancery.
In a scheme by Qatari Diar, the property is being transformed into a luxurious retreat from the bustling streets of London: a Rosewood hotel with 137 spacious guest rooms and suites, a signature spa and six flagship retail spaces, as well as a variety of dining and entertainment spaces, including five gourmet restaurants and a ballroom for up to 1,000 guests, one of the largest in London.
This building has historical and architectural significance. Its original façade, which features an 11-metre gilded eagle hovering above the main entrance, is being preserved. Esteemed British architect, Sir David Chipperfield, has been selected to reimagine the mid-20th century building through elegant interior upgrades, all that while maintaining its integrity and the building's unique story.
