London’s new street food market isn’t popping up where you’d quite expect……….…unless you’re thinking of a Grade I listed, deconsecrated church in Mayfair celebrated as one of the finest examples of 19th-century Greek revival architecture in London, that once counted President Dwight Eisenhower amongst its regulars………in which case, it’s exactly where you’d expect.
St. Mark’s, deconsecrated in 1973, “a building of great historical importance, classified as a grade 1 listing building” to clarify, the same level as Buckingham Palace. Sandwiched snugly and somewhat incongruously between two grand mansions, St. Mark’s was built in the 1820s, became the unofficial ‘American church’ during WWII, fell out of use in the 70s.
Now, after a painstaking £5m restoration, it’s back in its full former glory – to host the sophomore site of Mercato Mayfair.
Mercato Mayfair is a sustainable community market that houses restaurants, delis, cocktail bars, patisseries, and food counters galore. Community is a key focus, and educational programs — including workshops, events and cookery classes — will take place in the vaulted basement. There is also a rooftop terrace and outdoor space, which will be particularly lovely during the summer months.
Lamberti Construction is the General Contractor who has worked on the project.
It’s been an amazing challenging, but at the end we have made it….. transforming this grade 1 listed building into Mercato Mayfair it’s been an amazing achievement for all of us, moreover we are extremely delighted that all effort made by Lamberti Construction and whole team can be seen in such great result…..Go and visit this new vibrant place in the heart of London – Carlo Lamberti – General Manager at Lamberti Construction
