LONDON - October 28, 2002 - 47 Park Street by Marriott Grand Residence Club announced recently the opening of its membership gallery. Situated in London’s prestigious Mayfair district, 47 Park Street is a unique residence club comprised of 49 luxurious one- and two-bedroom residences.

Renowned architectural and interior designer, Wimberley Allison Tong & Goo (London) presents the gallery and model residence in a classic style. The refurbished residence creates an atmosphere of privacy and luxury for those who adopt this second home option with interiors that couple the design themes of the Neo-classical and Regency art periods, and color schemes anchored in fresh creams and luxuriant golds.
“The opening of the membership gallery is the first opportunity for our prospective Members to get a taste of what this exceptional residence club has to offer,” said Marc Topiol, managing director of 47 Park Street. “A great deal of customer research has gone into creating a club which combines the best of second home ownership with the luxury and personal service of the finest hotels.”
Balancing the refurbishment efforts with the property’s Edwardian architecture, 47 Park Street will have 33 one-bedroom and 16 two-bedroom residences ranging in size from 710-1,108 square feet (66-95 square meters). The spacious residences provide such conveniences as a well-equipped kitchen, separate living room with dining area and entertainment system.
Dedicated concierge staff will provide the utmost in personalized service for the 47 Park Street Member. They will address a Member’s pre-arrival needs from stocking the refrigerator with requested wines and specialty foods and unpacking and pressing pre-sent clothing to theatre tickets and dinner reservations, creating an atmosphere of true comfort for The Club Member.
