On a street as historic as this one, it’s only fitting that The Great Portland gives a nod to its notable neighbours while making its own mark. Drawing on the rich variety of architectural traditions in the area, this highly crafted building exudes a modern quality, from its welcoming exterior, to its considered interior.
Boasting a bright, natural limestone façade, bronze-framed lantern bay windows and cast aluminium balustrades, architect Simon Bowden creates a depth and rhythm using light and shade, bringing the building to life. Inspired by the distinctive glaze of Japanese porcelain, the building’s balustrades introduce additional texture as well as artistic flair and frame the windows graciously from the outside in.
At street level, open frontages on all three sides allow the public to connect with the street and the building in a new way. Respectful of the past, but with an eye on the future, The Great Portland blends both old and new to provide a modern home in a distinguished district.
Designed from the inside out, and with an enviable central London location, The Great Portland is perfect for the discerning individual, the professional couple and the modern family. The selection of one, two and three-bed layouts provide luxurious living, designed with you at heart.

This latest new-build development offers you an absolutely rare opportunity to enjoy the best of modern design and refined traditions on Great Portland Street, Marylebone.
Great Portland Street acts as the unifying line between Marylebone and Fitzrovia, two vibrant neighbourhoods filled with striking architecture and an abundance of cafés, pubs, bars and eateries.
Great Portland Street acts as the unifying line between Marylebone and Fitzrovia, two vibrant neighbourhoods filled with striking architecture and an abundance of cafés, pubs, bars and eateries. Bookended by Oxford Street and Euston Road, Great Portland Street is at the very heart of these two historic districts, and indeed London itself. The acclaimed Portland Hospital nearby has a long list of exceptional notable births from celebrities to the British Royal Family, earmarking the famous medical and wellness tradition in the area.
The reputations of both Marylebone and Fitzrovia are well deserved. With its quaint storefronts and welcoming community, Marylebone is renowned for its village feel. Fitzrovia weaves historic sites and contemporary charm, creating a unique urban fabric. Today, their differences are smaller but the subtleties remain. The roads that branch off Great Portland Street are home to everything from pubs to parks, florists to famous institutions; even a number of embassies are proud to call Portland Place their home away from home. Impressively individual but perfectly complementary, both areas offer central city living at its finest.
Great Portland Street station connects you to all of London’s major transport hubs – whether you’re jetting off, hopping on a train, or heading somewhere more local. Whatever you need, it’s right on your doorstep.
