One Blackfriars, South Bank, SE1

One Blackfriars joins a select group of iconic London buildings that have each acquired a nickname before their completion. Already known to Londoners as “The Vase” due to its strikingly unique glass-fronted, mid-level bulge, this new property development by St George London provides stunning views of the River Thames that include many of these now world-famous landmarks. Soaring to 170 metres above street level, its prime position next to the southern pier of Blackfriars Bridge ensures that residents of apartments here are within walking distance from the City of London’s financial district and a short Tube ride away from the West End.

The interiors of the one, two and three bedroom apartments are an artistic revelation, inspired as they are by the proximity of development to the Tate Modern gallery. Innovative materials, reflective surfaces and elegant details are inspired by a triumvirate of great British artists - namely Hepworth, Turner and Gainsborough. The on-site amenities perfectly complement the atmosphere of tasteful luxury and are maintained with discreet professionalism by a 24-hour Harrods Estate concierge. These include a 20-metre swimming pool, virtual golf course, indoor garden, private gym and viewing lounge on the 32nd floor from where residents can enjoy uninterrupted views over the Capital.

The strip of shoreline that runs either side of One Blackfriars is home to a thriving gathering of restaurants, theatres and music venues. Blackfriars Station is a river-spanning work of art in itself which boasts its own River Taxi stop and provides fast links to the Farringdon Crossrail interchange for express trains to Canary Wharf and Heathrow Airport. St Pancras Eurostar and both Luton and Gatwick airports are also connected. The District and Circle Line Tube networks connect with the Square Mile and the shopping and theatre districts of the West End.
