The Heron, City, EC2

City professionals wishing to rent apartments that are a stones throw from their office are opting for fringe areas that are also near to the on-trend districts of Hoxton and Shoreditch. The Heron fulfils these criteria handsomely and also has the added cachet of being Eco-friendly in design, build and operation. The slimline look of this 36 storey building belies the spaciousness of the apartments. A special exoskeleton means that support columns are kept to a minimum, giving the rooms vital extra square-footage. Large widows and balconies overlook landscaped gardens and are fantastic vantage points from where to view one of the world's great skylines.

Of course residents renting apartments at The Heron will not be content with just gazing at the view. Young, adventurous families will be particularly keen to get down to street level and explore this sophisticated corner of the capital. Fortunately, the area is packed with top notch eateries, trendy shops and amazing landmarks. From browsing luxury goods in the London Wall, to enjoying spectacular lunches in and around historic Smithfield, there is always something to catch the eye and feed the imagination.

The giant Barbican Arts Centre ensures that although the Heron is sited in the financial quarter, it does not exist in a cultural desert. However, there is always the opportunity to explore further and first class travel connections put most of London's top destination within easy reach. Three important underground routes intersect at nearby Moorgate station. The Northern, Circle and Hammersmith lines make all the main rail hubs easily accessible and in turn make travel to the main international airports, a simple matter. All one, two and three bedrooms benefit from a 24 hour concierge service.
