One Blackfriars, Southbank SE1
One Blackfriars is set to be one of London’s most iconic and truly unique residences. Transforming London’s skyline with its shimmering glass façade and distinctive silhouette, this development will rise to 170 metres, making it one of the tallest residential buildings in Europe.
Developed by St. George plc, a proud member of the Berkley group, One Blackfriars is destined to create a new focus on London’s Southbank in SE1, with its truly unique exterior. The single glazed facade which wraps around the Tower provides a distinctive profile, unlike any other.
Designed by award-winning SimpsonHaugh this striking building will comprise 274 exceptional residential apartments spread over 50 storeys, a selection of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, showcasing three specification collections by renowned interior designers Tara Bernard and Partners.
Set on the Southbank, fondly known as ‘the cultural heart of London’, this exquisite new development is moments away from the very best the capital has to offer. With the Tate Modern, National Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe just a short stroll away, residents will never find themselves lacking something to do, from dining at the Southbank’s famous OXO Tower, enjoying cocktails at the Shard, witnessing history at St Paul’s Cathedral or sampling the best of British produce at Borough Market.
Every few feet there is something new to indulge in, whether you are keen to experience a live concert, alternative theatre, classic art or a range of food and drink originating from across the globe, you may well be overwhelmed by the sheer variety and amount of attractions offered on the south side of the River Thames.
The Southbank benefits from excellent pedestrian, cycle, rail, road and ferry access. With several stations within close walking distance, One Blackfriars is one of the best-located developments in the south side of London. Just a few minutes away is Blackfriars Station, which through the District and Circle line as well as National Rail, connects the area to some of the most important links in London. The station also offers direct trains to both Gatwick and Luton airports, providing a truly global level of access for residents.
Southwark Underground Station, also within a few minutes’ walk away, benefits from the Jubilee line, which connects to areas such as Bond Street and Canary Wharf. Furthermore, One Blackfriars is only a short stroll away from Waterloo Station, one of the main transport hubs in central London, connecting to four underground lines and also to the rest of London and beyond.
A number of the UK’s most prestigous universities and colleges are within close proximity of One Blackfriars, such as King’s College London, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and University College London (UCL). There are also several Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ rated schools in the area such as The Cathedral School of St Saviour and St Mary Overy, Charles Dickens Primary School and Oasis Academy South Bank.
In addition to the cultural facilities, the Southbank and its surrounding area has become a major business hub for central London. With major commercial developments such as More London and The Shard down the river, there is a strong presence of global companies located in the area, such as Ogilvy & Mather, Unilever, Ernst & Young, PwC, BNY Mellon, Jones Day, Gowling WLG and Norton Rose Fullbright.
Interior designed by internationally renowned interior designers Tara Bernerd & Partners, the three collections in One Blackfriars are named after three leading British artists: Thomas Gainsborough, the 18th century portrait and landscape painter; J.M.W. Turner, revered for his romantic and impressionist landscapes and the 20th century modernist sculptor Barbara Hepworth, to celebrate the cultural heritage of the Southbank. The collections offer a range of apartments with a choice of two design schemes.
The Gainsborough Collection
Encompassing classical elegance, handsome features and attention to detail, The Gainsborough Collection will provide stylish studios, Manhattan suites and one bedroom apartments.
The Turner Collection
Turner was the master of light and reflections and these two and three bedroom apartments, with a high specification, exhibit exceptional use of space and lighting.
The Hepworth Collection
