Chapter Spitalfields, originally known as Nido Spitalfields, is the 3rd tallest student accommodation building in the world, in comparison to the 2nd tallest, the Sky Plaza in Leeds, and the tallest, 17 New Wakefield Street in Manchester. It is located at 100 Middlesex Street in Spitalfields, London.[1] There is also another high rise Chapter building in London which serves the same purpose and which is situated in King's Cross area.[2] In two 16 story towers, as well as a new low rise one in Portobello area.[3]

The 34-storey tower falls within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, though Middlesex Street forms the boundary with the City of London, the principal financial district of the world. Middlesex Street forms part of the Petticoat Lane Market area.

Prior to construction of Nido, the plot at 100 Middlesex Street was occupied by a 1960-built office building, Rodwell House, which comprised an 8-storey block oriented north-south, surrounded by a single-storey office podium.

The tower makes a cameo appearance in the Doctor Who episode The Wedding of River Song.

In 2015, Nido Spitalfields was purchased by Greystar Real Estate Partners, parent company of the student accommodation company, Chapter.[4]
