The once-bohemian district of Fitzrovia is becoming posh as the property ripple spreads from chichi Marylebone. Fitzrovia Apartments on Bolsover Street raise the bar in terms of design, quality, scale and glamour.
Part of a development that includes studio workspace and a new medical facility for the listed Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, the 70 apartments are grouped around a landscaped private courtyard and reached via a stunning, double-height entrance lobby with walnut panelling and dramatic modern chandeliers.
The contemporary architecture of limestone, zinc and glass fits elegantly into the Edwardian surroundings and has "uncompromising modernity", according to Harry Handelsman, chief of Manhattan Loft Corporation, joint developer with Ridgeford Properties.
