Canalside flats at City Wharf

This tranquil development has communal roof terraces and courtyard gardens overlooking Wenlock Basin.

While City Road, which links the Square Mile to Islington, has become “Skyscraper Street”, with a clutch of new apartment towers, the quiet low-rise neighbourhood tucked away behind this bustling thoroughfare has an altogether different feel.

Here, canalside wharves and small factories are making way for new builds and loft offices for designers and geeks, a spillover from Shoreditch.



City Wharf, pictured comprises a linear group of warehouse-style blocks, with communal roof terraces and courtyard gardens overlooking Wenlock Basin. The 327 flats even feature storage for more than 300 bikes. Prices from £500,000. Call Fabrica on 0800 083 3199.
