The Bar­bi­can is un­der­go­ing a to­tal trans­for­ma­tion and be­com­ing THE place to live right now in Lon­don. The area has long been home to artists, ar­chi­tects and the dis­cern­ing city worker, with its cen­tral lo­ca­tion, ex­cel­lent trans­port links and de­sign houses that sur­round it. Now, Blake Tower, the fourth build­ing that makes up the iconic Bar­bi­can Es­tate, has been com­pletely re­de­vel­oped and brought to life in a stylish, con­tem­po­rary way by lead­ing de­vel­oper Redrow, of­fer­ing a col­lec­tion of 74 art-in­spired suites, one, two and three bed­room apart­ments and pent­houses in a Grade II listed build­ing. With style at the heart of Blake Tower, the lux­ury apart­ments have been de­signed by renowned in­te­rior de­sign­ers Con­ran and Part­ners. In keep­ing with their his­tor­i­cal sur­round­ings they range in size from 450 square feet to an in­cred­i­bly spa­cious over 2,000 square feet and they pro­vide breath-tak­ing views of Lon­don’s iconic sky­line takin in the Lon­don Eye and The Shard. The stylish in­te­ri­ors in­clude the jux­ta­po­si­tion of clas­sic ma­te­ri­als such as pol­ished con­crete sur­faces com­ple­mented by satin brass de­tail­ing; a spe­cific char­ac­ter­is­tic of the Bar­bi­can and one which adds a unique touch to each of the homes. Lo­ca­tion wise Blake Tower is hard to beat, rep­re­sent­ing a utopian ideal for in­nercity liv­ing within Zone One. You can live among iconic Bru­tal­ist ar­chi­tec­ture, in­ter­laced with a botan­i­cal gar­den, wa­ter foun­tains, restau­rants, shops and world­class cul­tural des­ti­na­tions. The in­fa­mous Bar­bi­can Cen­tre, Mu­seum of Lon­don and the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic and Drama are prac­ti­cally on the doorstep to en­sure cul­ture vul­tures are spoilt for choice with an end­less ar­ray of art and pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tions, mu­sic and plays from clas­sic Shake­speare to con­tem­po­rary productions. City slick­ers can also en­joy Blake Tower’s close prox­im­ity to the iconic St. Paul’s Cathe­dral and up­mar­ket re­tail cen­tre One New Change, a pre­mium shop­ping desti­na­tion, with cafés and restau­rants from renowned chefs and flag­ship fashion brands, so you can lit­er­ally shop till you drop on your doorstep. Buzzing in the day, the City re­ally comes to life as night falls. Start­ing with cock­tails on the roof ter­race of Madi­son, the hip Man­hat­tan meets Lon­don bar fol­lowed by a short stroll to the buzzing neigh­bour­hoods of Shored­itch and trendy Dal­ston, with their thriv­ing nightlife from lead­ing restau­rants, late-night bars and of course clubs with some of the best and up and com­ing DJ’s to keep the party alive till the early hours. With ex­cel­lent trans­port con­nec­tions, from nearby Bar­bi­can un­der­ground sta­tion, less than two min­utes away the bright lights of Soho and the West End are also only twenty min­utes away. With the ad­di­tion of Cross­rail, Far­ring­don will be­come a ma­jor Cen­tral Lon­don hub and the only sta­tion with ac­cess to Thames­link, Cross­rail and the whole tube net­work. Blake Tower is an iconic build­ing in one of the most sought af­ter and unique res­i­den­tial ad­dresses-and rep­re­sents a rare op­por­tu­nity to live in one of the most strik­ing parts of Lon­don. These stun­ning apart­ments will be avail­able to move in by mid-2017.
