Welcome. This website is for the local residents and businesses and other neighbours who are impacted by our construction works


With its elegant Victorian town houses situated amid the buzz of the West End, Charlotte Street is a highly sought after address.

Merchant Land acquired three adjacent buildings located at 61, 63 and 65 Charlotte Street in 2014 and gained planning permission in January 2016. The existing poorly maintained buildings will make way for eight stylish apartments over five storeys. Ground level has been set aside for commercial space which has been earmarked for independent retailers, to add to the mix of outlets along the street.

Designed by local architects Studio Dowie, the original Victorian fa├žade of this townhouse has been preserved despite a substantial overhaul inside and a new courtyard. New offices to the rear will be home to Merchant Land.

First and foremost this is going to be Merchant Land's new London headquarters where we will run our own business as part of the community of businesses and residents in Charlotte Street for the long term. Whilst we understand no construction work is easy for the people around it - we want to be as easy to work with as possible whilst the disruption continues.
