Barratt London has unveiled the plans for its latest development in London, Blackfriars Circus

The project will include 336 one, two and three-bedroom apartments and four-bedroom duplex penthouses across a collection of five buildings varying in height from five to 28-storeys. The structures will be arranged around a central courtyard area, a space that will be open to all. Situated in Blackfriars, one of the latest areas in London's Zone 1 to undergo regeneration, the property will be the latest edition to Blackfriars Road, a location that will soon be transformed into a tree-lined boulevard surrounded by restaurants, cafes and retail spaces.

Gary Patrick, Regional Sales Director, Barratt London, said: "The regeneration of Southwark and its superb transport links is generating strong interest in Blackfriars Circus. It will attract residents that are seeking a well-appointed home, close to a raft of local amenities in a part of London that holds a strong identity within the community."



Designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects Maccreanor Lavington, most of the homes in the development will include a balcony or winter garden, and residents will also have access to two roof gardens, one of which is located at the top of the development's 28-storey building, that offer excellent views across London. The mixed-use quarter will also contain flexible workspaces that are able to accommodate up to 24 small businesses, aswell as two major new public spaces.

The tallest tower has a hexagonal plan to reduce visual impact from all angles. White glazed brickwork is used atop the building to create a crown of pinnacles, a distinctive new addition to the London skyline. This building will also house  a 24-hour concierge service on the ground floor and a dedicated entertainment room on the top floor. The development is expected to be completed in 2017.
