Glamorous high-rise flats at The Eagle in Old Street

Modern, minimalist, loft-inspired penthouses with a circular floorplan of nearly 2,000sq ft at The Eagle are perfect for City lawyers and bankers.

In City Road, a once-drab thoroughfare running between Old Street and Angel Tube stations, a crop of fashionable apartment schemes and a new canalside quarter are under way. The address has been given impetus by the so-called "Silicon Roundabout" cluster of fast-growing tech and creative companies. 

Glamorous high-rise flats are being built for geeks as well as City lawyers and bankers. Among the striking skyscrapers going up is The Eagle, above, built to a distinctive Art Deco design, with 206 flats.

Perched at the top of the eyrie are two dashing penthouses — modern, minimalist, loft-inspired spaces with a circular floorplan of nearly 2,000sq ft. The price for a penthouse is £4 million. Call Mount Anvil on 0845 077 9550.
