142-146 Harley Street

A prime self-contained, medical building.

142-146 Harley Street is located at the heart of The Harley Street Medical Area. The Harley Street Medical Area is a world class centre of medical excellence located in the heart of central London and is home to over 5,000 practitioners’, small clinics and full scale hospitals, covering 200 medical specialists. It boasts the largest concentration of medical providers anywhere in the world who offer outstanding patient care through pioneering treatments and cutting edge medicine within state-of-the-art facilities.

The Harley Street Medical Area sits within one of the world’s most prosperous and well connected cities. It is within reach of several international airports, St Pancras Eurostar terminal, numerous mainline stations, Crossrail systems and the vast public transport network. There are very few places in the UK, or indeed the world that are quite so accessible to patients and staff.

142-146 Harley Street is set within a fantastic location, which provides a dynamic, refreshing and well connected area to work and reside in. Marylebone Village offers a full range of amenities, from being a renowned retail destination with fashionable boutiques and specialist food and wine retailers, to catering for your everyday needs with a Waitrose supermarket, farmers market, post office and an array of restaurants, cafes and hotels. Marylebone is also surrounded by green space with Paddington Street Gardens situated just off Marylebone High Street and Regent’s Park (one of eight Royal Parks in London) positioned just at the top of Harley Street, providing 395 acres of parkland to explore, enjoy and unwind in.

142-146 Harley Street is a single property embracing the modern amenities required to facilitate a medical occupier. 142-146 Harley Street is currently undergoing a substantial refurbishment by The Howard de Walden Estate to provide a self-contained D1 Medical building of 15,655sq.ft across lower ground floor to fourth floor.

Project Manager Daniel Beard told PREMIER CONSTRUCTION MAGAZINE: “We have been asked to carry out a refurbishment of the linked grade II listed buildings providing accommodation suitable for a ‘first in class’ medical operator to work from, whist retaining and respecting the buildings historic character and charm. It was also noted that the restoration and improvement works should serve to enhance the overall appearance of the neighbouring properties and surrounding Harley Street Medical Area.”

The property consists of three buildings: 142, 144 and 146 Harley Street and includes the mews buildings at the rear on Park Crescent West, which will provide staff facilities, ancillary space and bike storage.

The buildings are being sympathetically refurbished to provide a single property while simultaneously embracing the modern amenities required to facilitate a medical occupier. The ground and first floor rooms will be finished with solid timber parquet flooring with the second and fourth floor rooms finished with engineered timber planks.

A new integrated vertical lifting platform is to be installed to enable disabled access as well as the installation of a new trolley lift and a new six person passenger lift. A new substation with 500kVA transformer, VRV heating/cooling system, LED lighting, video door entry system and fibre optics are a few examples of the provisions that will be available in the building.

The interconnectivity of all three buildings allows for a fantastic opportunity for a medical provider to occupy a prestigious and substantial Grade II listed building that lies within the centre of The Harley Street Medical Area.
Daniel added: “The completed scheme will provide level access from the street and through all three listed buildings. Improved lateral access through all three properties will be greatly enhanced, hopefully improving efficiency for the end user. The form plan for the upper floors will provide flexibility for use as consulting rooms and minor treatment rooms. The alterations and extensions at Lower ground floor along with the improvements to incoming utilities will allow for contemporary linked diagnostic/treatment facilities to be located throughout the lower ground floor of the three properties. We have strived to retain the properties historic character, architectural features and quirks, and this will become apparent upon the completion of the restoration of period features such as cornices, architectural metalwork, fireplaces and stone floors are completed.”
