An unwavering long-term commitment to the community and careful curation of the Estate’s 93 acres spanning Chelsea and Knightsbridge sits at the very heart of property manager Cadogan’s strategy. Despite recent challenges, Chelsea has seen a raft of exciting new retail and leisure openings. On Sloane Street, the chic Beaverbrook country house hotel launched its first London Town House, new flagships for Ralph Lauren and Burberry arrived, while on Pont Street British designer Anya Hindmarch realised her long-held dream and opened The Village, five neighbouring stores encapsulating creativity and innovation with community at its heart. The first Costes hotel outside Paris opened on Sloane Square and the UK’s first Catinetta Antinori, from Italy’s famed Antinori family, opened on Harriet Street in late 2023.
On nearby King’s Road, Copenhagen-cool Ganni, Positive Luxury jeweller Daniella Draper and Lampoo, championing pre-loved luxury, opened their doors, further cementing Cadogan’s ambitions to recapture the Road’s independent spirit. Europe’s first standalone Soho Home Studio can be found at Duke of York Square, and neighbourhood pubs including The Surprise and The Cadogan Arms, which often attract rave reviews from critics, and are much loved by locals and visitors alike following reopenings after extensive renovation.
Pedestrianised Pavilion Road remains the go-to for enjoyable artisan food shopping and, along with some of the neighbourhood’s 900 alfresco seats, it is now home to the newest Ottolenghi deli. At nearby Duke of York Square, the weekly Fine Food Market alternates between the Square and the green opposite Saatchi and an exciting outdoor events programme is in place adding further vibrancy to the neighbourhood, including an Art Week, Summer Festival, London’s largest free flower festival Chelsea in Bloom, themed British Icons.
Cadogan remains focused on minimising its environmental impact, ensuring sustainability is integrated into every aspect of the business. With ambitious targets, its Chelsea 2030 strategy reflects both local and global approaches to tackle the climate emergency and societal issues, promising Chelsea a greener, more sustainable future.
