Qatari Diar makes headway on US Embassy scheme

US Embassy developer Qatari Diar has reported reaching a key ‘milestone’ in its plan to transform the iconic building on Grosvenor Square.

It’s only been a few weeks since the FT alleged that a £10m legal battle was ongoing between the firm and its development partner Chelsfield Partners, after the project ‘ground to a halt’.

The issuance of a number of requests for proposals (RFPs) for the Grade II-listed property, however, suggests things are right back on track.

We hear RFPs have been sent out ‘for the detailed technical and economic studies required for the delivery of a new London landmark’.

The scheme is one of Qatari Diar’s flagship projects in London, along with the ongoing redevelopments of Chelsea Barracks and the Shell Centre.
