Eagle Place is a multi-use development situated in London’s Piccadilly. The scheme from the Crown Estate is part of a £500 million investment to transform the St James Conservation Area.

Eric Parry Architects were commissioned to design the development, consolidating seven existing buildings into two buildings; one new building and one refurbished listed building. Portland Jordans Whitbed was used as the cladding material and Portland Grove Whitbed for the piers.

'€˜We selected Portland stone due to its timeless character, quality, and its appropriateness to the context of the City of Westminster.  The particular stones chosen provided a material with rich character, and reliable consistency within the agreed range. The ability to select from extremely large blocks was of benefit for the lintels we needed.'€™ (Project Director, Nick Jackson)
