Of the many new developments on the long stretch off London’s Old Street roundabout, Berkeley Homes’ 250 City Road is set to be the grandest of all. This two acre site between the hotspots of Old Street and The Angel will be a hub in its own right, with 75,000 square feet of office space, 40,000 square feet for retail, cafés and bars, a stand-alone hotel, and two stunning towers solely for residents; the whole creating places with human scale in which to live and work whilst defining a landmark destination.
Designed by world-renowned architects Foster and Partners, 250 City Road marries intricate low rise architecture, in response to the streetscape and urban realm, with strong high rise towers empathetic to London’s ever more exciting skyline. On completion, the complex will include 930 studios and apartments spread over the eight buildings, complete with leisure and fitness facilities and spectacular green spaces.
This marketing suite for the first phase of 263 apartments designed by award-winning interior architects Darling Associates, is indicative of both the immense quality and the green policies prevalent throughout the complex and features a PurePlank floor from Havwoods in the reception rooms, kitchen and hallways. Having been specified on a number of Berkeley Homes projects recently, including One Tower Bridge, Ebury Square and Chelsea Creek, we are delighted to once again feature in such a significant part of London’s future.
