St Martin’s Lane has great potential to become a premier destination in the heart of the West End.
Transforming St Martin’s Lane
We propose major improvements to reinvigorate the St Martin’s area, elevating its status as a core part of London’s West End.
We seek to improve the quality of the public realm to grow the area’s appeal as a great place to live, work, visit and invest. Through these transformational changes, St Martin’s will be a place that residents, businesses and world-class arts institutions will be proud to call home.
St Martin’s Lane would become a pedestrian priority street from 12 noon until midnight. Footways would be doubled in width, with a flush carriageway, creating a friendlier environment for pedestrians, to attract and retain visitors and also for alfresco dining to become a permanent feature of St Martin’s Lane.
A sequence of elegant trees, surrounded by planting, new seating and architectural lighting would transform St Martin’s Lane by day and night, enhancing the environment as an attractive place to visit, enjoy world-class performing arts, work and do business.
