BLAKE TOWER: LIVING THE HIGH LIFE
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.
