The top line

145 high-end residences, all constructed inside the repurposed frames of disused gasholders, overlooking the idyllic canal by King’s Cross.

What’s to write home about

If you’re lucky enough to snatch up one of these incredibly designed properties, you’ll have a lot to write home about. And you can pen those letters from the communal roof gardens, spa, gym residents’ lounge and even a 14-person screening room. 

The lead designer of the interiors, Jonathan Tuckey of Jonathan Tuckey Design, wants residents to go through “a sequence of incredibly dramatic spaces that are geometrically very unusual, but very strong. And that is all before you get to the front door of your apartment. 

The apartments

Each flat has been designed with materials that reference the industrial history of the building, yet they all have their own character and can be personalised to each tenants wants and whims. 

Floor-to-ceiling triple glazing on the curved outer walls grants spectacular views over the indomitable London skyline. Most of the apartments come with private balconies, perfect for sipping a glass of wine as the sun sets over the capital.
