Blackfriars Circus:hundreds of new homes set for South Bank cultural quarter

New homes from £595,000 at Blackfriars Circus are part of the new cycle superhighway from Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross...

Wide, boulevard-like Blackfriars Road, part of the new cycle superhighway from Elephant & Castle to King’s Cross, has more than a dozen major building projects and up to 1,600 new homes under way or in the pipeline.

What was an unloved carriageway is now a key part of the buzzing South Bank cultural quarter.

New flats above street-level shops, bars and restaurants are replacing Sixties office blocks, helping to make this a lively neighbourhood that is cheaper than Borough and Bankside.

Blackfriars Circus has 336 homes looming over a listed obelisk built in 1771 as the focal point of a grand avenue that was devastated in the Blitz.

Of five buildings of varying height, the tallest is a 26-storey tower with a residents’ sky lounge.

Prices from £595,000. Call Barratt on 020 3285 6655.
