The wraparound balconies of Principal Tower make it something of an architectural celebrity, even in this skyscraper-rich part of London. This is no surprise, seeing as the designers are the same minds that gave birth to the iconic “Gherkin” tower, just a short walk down the road. The central location, halfway between the gleaming corporate nerve centre of the City and the funky bars of Shoreditch, makes apartments here a good investment as they provide the kind of work/life opportunities that successful professionals demand.
The luxury one, two and three bedroom apartments are distributed over 64 floors and therefore provide some of the best views of the Capital that money can buy. A 24-hour concierge service is on hand to keep things running smoothly and facilities include a swimming pool, gym and screening room. Interiors are beautifully finished and the tall windows ensure that all the rooms benefit from ample natural light.
At street-level, there is an extensive choice of amenities to choose from and because the City of London is now a recognised retail and culinary destination, places like Spitalfields Market, Devonshire Square and Boxpark Shoreditch keep on thriving and growing. Travel connections centre around Liverpool Street which is home to one of the new Elizabeth Line’s main stops. Trains on this network make short work of travelling to Canary Wharf, the West End and even Heathrow Airport. There is also a dedicated express link to Stanstead Airport. Other Tube networks are Central, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City.
