Greener, cleaner and more pedestrian friendly spaces to create a welcoming environment
Celebrating the character of the area through public art
We would use artistic elements and cultural activity to animate and celebrate the history of this part of London. The proposals for these places would be developed with the community post submission, in line with the emerging principles of the culture and public art strategy:
Artwork to mark the key ‘gateways’ into the South Molton Triangle with contemporary crafted details.
Surprising and unexpected seating or resting points throughout the Triangle.
The Lost River
A lighting, paving or sound installation embedded into South Molton Lane that brings the hidden River Tyburn to life.
Celebrating the work of this important 18th century figure.
Increased biodiversity and a green environment
As part of our commitments as a founding partner of the Wild West End, we are aiming to create an attractive and green urban environment, naturally cooled by a variety of trees and plants. The public spaces are being designed to encourage interactions between people and wildlife, harnessing the benefits this can bring for people’s health and wellbeing.
We will retain the mature tree at the north of the Triangle, outside Grays Antiques, as well as introducing greening at terrace and roof levels where possible. We will also be planting new trees in various locations across the Triangle including at the foot of the new walkway in South Molton Lane which leads onto 10 South Molton Street as well as along Brook Street and Davies Street.
Indicative planting types.
