To mark the start of construction of Marble Arch Mound, Marble Arch London BID has teamed up with Multivista to launch a live stream, allowing the public to follow every step of the installation process, as the 25m high, grass-covered pop-up platform comes to life.
Marble Arch Mound is due to open to the public on Monday 5 July for six months after Westminster City Council granted planning permission in March.
The viewing platform aims transform the west end of Oxford Street, giving visitors a ‘spectacular vista’ from next to the Grade 1 listed Marble Arch monument across some of the capital’s most renowned locations – Hyde Park, Oxford Street, Edgware Road and Park Lane.
The temporary attraction s expected to host 200,00 ticjed visitors and will run for six months and the initiative is part of the council’s new Oxford Street District (OSD) framework.
Kay Buxton, chief executive of Marble Arch London BID, commented: “We can’t wait for the opening of Marble Arch Mound on 5 July and we know it has already generated huge amounts of public and media excitement and intrigue. This is why we have joined forces with Multivista to provide people with the chance to watch the Mound take shape over the next few months, offering a glimpse of this very unique construction process.
“Marble Arch Mound is just what the doctor ordered, boosting the recovery of London’s hospitality sector – hotels, venues and visitor attractions in Marble Arch and across the West End, as well as pubs, bars and restaurants, as visitors take advantage of everything Central London has to offer.”
