|Architect||Guy Morgan and Partners|
Built in 1936 by Guy Morgan and Partners, it features an impressive curved façade, a roof garden and a basement swimming pool. It was probably the earliest of the residential apartment blocks in the Clerkenwell area. The walls were built in beige bricks, specially made by Williamson Cliff Ltd (Stamford, Lincolnshire) and placed over a steel frame.
Regalian Proprieties refurbished the building in the 1980s, to designs by Hildebrand & Clicker architects,[clarification needed]providing the actual interior flats shape and facilities.
On Saturday 20 July 2013 a flat on the first floor caught fire and the building had to be evacuated.
The building is composed of nine floors and has a total of 120 flats. In the basement are located a swimming pool, a spa, a sauna, a gym, a small library, a wi-fi area, a laundry room and a garage. All spaces are communal and access is free to all residents. There are two lifts.
