The Crown Estate’s Regent Street Investment Programme reaches another Milestone with topping out of W5 South

Posted on 10 March, 2015 by Chris Grigorovsky

On Friday 6 March, a topping out ceremony took place for Block W5 South Regent Street, which is currently undergoing refurbishment.


Started in May 2013, the refurbishment sees the interior and services being replaced with modern world-class office and commercial space while the exterior of the Grade II listed building has been fully restored.

The refurbishment is part of The Crown Estate’s £1 billion Regent Street investment programme, which has seen 16 successfully completed major refurbishments and redevelopments.

The investment programme includes the award winning Quadrant redevelopment, which was was one of the largest additions to London’s public realm since Trafalgar Square.

The topping out ceremony for W5 South was attended by The Crown Estate and the project team including architects AHMM, development managers Exemplar and main contractor Mace.

Development Manager John Grinnel and David Shaw, Head of the Regent Street Portfolio, joined the team to bury a twig from a yew tree into the concrete on the roof of the building.

Work is scheduled to be completed towards the end of this year.
