3 Duke of York Street
3 Duke of York Street is in the heart of St James’s on the corner with Ormond Yard between Jermyn Street and St James’s Square. York Street (now Duke of York Street) was probably so named in honour of James, Duke of York, who succeeded to the throne as James II in 1685. It’s first mentioned by name in the rate books in 1686, when there were five houses on the west side and three on the east.
The building has recently undergone a complete refurbishment under the auspices of Donald Insall Associates to provide self-contained office floors on 1st – 4th floors with a meeting room facility and kitchen in the lower-ground floor. GA were contracted to undertake various electrical works by ME Construction; new LED lighting, power and fire alarm system to the offices and landlords communal areas.
