A taste of Soho’s history
The Pathé Building, situated in the heart of W1, houses fifteen luxury apartments, including two penthouses.
My first impression of the Pathé Building when walking down bustling Wardour Street in Soho is one of sheer beauty – it’s a striking building with architectural elegance from decades past. With its arched windows and grey brickwork, you get a sense that the building has witnessed many events over the years.
Recently renovated into fifteen luxury apartments, The Pathé Building offers a rare opportunity to buy into a part of Soho’s rich history. Originally home and London base to the French film pioneers, The Pathé Brothers, in 1902, experiments in hand coloured film, newsreel and synchronised audio and visual recordings first took place from within. From here came the developments which shaped the film and media industry that is still prevalent in the area today.
Within this carefully converted building there is a home for all different tastes and needs - from one bedroom apartments ideal as pied á terre or buy to let investments, to three bedroom duplex penthouses. The apartments boast large windows which offer fantastic views of the city and surrounding area whilst providing a relief from the hustle and bustle of Soho. And, with Sheppard Robson and ID:SR’s touch - its award winning interior design arm behind the design of the apartments and common parts – the building fits perfectly into the most creative square mile in London.
Residents will have a weekday concierge run by Harrods Estates and gym in the basement - a rare find in such developments. This really would be ideal for a buyer wanting to be situated in the West End, amongst all the boutique restaurants, bars and shops in Soho.
