BARTS SQUARE, A MIXE­DUSE RE­DE­VEL­OP­MENT OF ST BARTHOLOMEW’S HOS­PI­TAL, OR BART’S, IS THE BRAIN­CHILD OF DE­VEL­OPER HE­LI­CAL BAR. IT’S A RARE BREED IN A CITY WITH A PEN­CHANT FOR BUILD­ING GLASS TOW­ERS: AT NO MORE THAN EIGHT STOREYS HIGH, THE CITY OF LONDON DE­VEL­OP­MENT USES BRICK EX­TE­RI­ORS AND SEN­SI­TIVELY BLENDS HER­ITAGE STRUC­TURES WITH MOD­ERN AR­CHI­TEC­TURE. “WE’RE KEEP­ING ANY BUILD­INGS THAT ARE PRE-WAR, AND GET­TING RID OF THE POST-WAR ONES AS THEY WEREN’T GO­ING TO LAST ANY­WAY,” SAYS HE­LI­CAL BAR’S NIKKI GIB­BARD.

BARTS SQUARE’S 235 ONE-, TWO- AND THREE-BED­ROOM APART­MENTS AND PENT­HOUSES, IN 45 LAY­OUTS, ARE AVAIL­ABLE THROUGH SAV­ILLS HONG KONG FROM THIS MONTH. THE FIRST PHASE IS SET FOR COM­PLE­TION IN JULY 2017.
