Large 1 Bedroom | 627 sq. ft internal | 1 bathroom | Grade II listed | Lower GF | Moments From Farringdon Crossrail | Designed by Conran & Partners | Part of the Barbican Estate
Already one of Central London's best served stations, from 2021 Farringdon will be the only station in London providing access to three of the capital's major transport networks - London Underground, Thameslink and Crossrail.
This unique hub will be served by more than 140 trains an hour. The new ticket hall will be just minutes’ walk from Blake Tower, and passengers embarking from Farringdon will be able to travel to almost anywhere in the capital - and much of the country - with minimal changes. Direct links to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports, and St Pancras Eurostar terminal will also place Europe and beyond within easy reach of Blake Tower residents. It's an exciting time to be in the City.
The Barbican Estate houses amenities including classical and contemporary music venues, art galleries, cinemas, restaurants, the Museum of London, two schools, a nursery, a public library and the second largest conservatory in London.
The Barbican’s unique finish was achieved by hand, with pick and bush hammers, intended to part-reveal the Pen Lee granite aggregate in the concrete.
London City teamed up with Redrow Homes to carry out the Blake Tower development into luxury flats. The refurbishment had had to respect the Grade II listed status of the building as a piece of iconic architecture. So, few changes were allowed to the exterior; but the building have been extensively re-modelled internally and interior designed by Conran & Partners.
