Lillie Square is owned and developed by a joint venture between Capital & Counties Properties Plc and interests of certain members of the Kwok family. The general contractor on the project is Sir Robert McAlpine Limited. Phase 1 of this development has been sold, with the Company’s stone selected for the ten penthouses. The material is to be installed in the kitchens, entrances and common areas. It is also being used in various other apartments with terraces. The first shipment of Bianco Illirico slabs is due to be delivered to Lillie Square within two weeks, with the total order anticipated to be 2,000 square metres over the next two years.
Chris Gilbert, CEO, commented: “We are pleased that our newest quarry is now supplying our Bianco Illirico marble to such a large and prestigious development in London. We have now sold a variety of our marble types into two of the largest London developers’ projects, Berkeley Homes Plc and Capital & Counties Properties Plc.
