Description of One Crown Place
One Crown Place is a mixed-use development in the City of London EC2.
The development comprises office and retail spaces, two residential towers with 246 residential apartments above a podium office space, a private members’ club and boutique design hotel.
The unique feature of One Crown Place is its combination of modern, cutting-edge architecture housing a mix of modern offices with spectacular apartments on the upper floors.
The last remaining complete row of Georgian houses in the area fronts the scheme and will be sensitively restored to their former condition, to house a clubhouse for the residents together with a boutique hotel.
The One Crown Place development is designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox. Interiors are designed by Bowler James Brindley and Studio Ashby.
The office space is to be housed in two buildings: a new podium building and the refurbished 54 Wilson Street building, providing 120,000 sq ft and 20,000 sq ft of net floor area respectively. Retail space is to be distributed across the ground floor of all of the buildings. The Sun Street Georgian terraces will house a hotel and leisure/restaurant space of circa 22,000 sq ft of net area.
The site is bordered by Earl Street, Crown Place, Sun Street and Wilson Street. Liverpool Street (National Rail and multiple underground lines), Shoreditch High Street (Overground), Old Street (Northern line) and Moorgate (Northern, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines) are all within half a mile or five minutes’ walk from the site.
Global property firm CBRE has been appointed by AlloyMtd in 2015 to act as development manager, to sell the site’s 246 private apartments and lease 140,000 sq ft of commercial space.
