Like other areas on the City of London fringes, Whitechapel has plenty of character to match its close proximity to one of the main engine rooms of the global economy. The Silk District is a brand-new property development that is adding a touch of high-rise glamour to an area that already has superb transport links to all parts of Central London and beyond. The Bouchon phase of the scheme is made up of 195 luxury studio, one and two bedroom apartments and provides amazing 360-degree views of the London skyline. It is due to complete in late 2023.
With beautifully designed, contemporary interiors that feature terrazzo-effect flooring, the interiors of the Silk District development offer a sense of urban comfort that is complemented by a comprehensive selection of five-star facilities. Residents have access to a private gym, cinema, flexible work space/lounge and 24-hour concierge service. Rooftop and podium gardens add a touch of nature to the hi-tech environment. The streets surrounding Silk District are popular destinations due to the amazing variety of top quality restaurants, bars and retail spaces. Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Box Park Shoreditch and the Silicon Roundabout are all within walking distance.
Many leading centres of higher education are right on the doorstep of the Silk District. Queen Mary University, Whitechapel Campus is a two minute stroll away and University College London, SOAS, London School of Economics and Kings College London can all be reached by tube in under 20 minutes. Mulberry Academy and Swanlea School are just two of the many outstanding secondary schools that are located nearby. With Whitechapel Station (Zone 2) being a matter of three minutes away by foot, The Silk District is superbly connected. District and Metropolitan Line services runs into the City and West End with the London Overground linking to Shoreditch and both Westfield Shopping centres (Shepherd’s Bush and Stratford). The new Elizabeth Line will drastically reduce journey times into Central London and will also provide direct connections to Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf.
