It is rare to find a part of the City fringe where a development boom is only just getting into its stride. Aldgate, on the eastern edge of the financial district, used to be a dead zone after working hours. However, close proximity to a prosperous banking community has helped to seed regeneration.

A new phase of apartments has been released at Goodman’s Fields, which in medieval times supplied food to London but is now becoming a new seven-acre “urban quarter” with a mix of homes, shops, restaurants and bars, hotel, public park and plaza.

The development aims to be part of the Square Mile yet have its own identity, and will eventually include more than 900 homes. Meranti House is a 20-storey tower with 107 flats and duplex penthouses boasting splendid views, and with a residents’ pool, gym and spa in the plan. Prices from £650,000. Call 020 3217 1000.
