Aldgate Place is a “flagship scheme”


The Sunday Times features Aldgate Place in their focus on upcoming flagship projects in the Capital.

Ross Clark, property journalist for The Sunday Times, calls Barratt London’s Aldgate Place development a “flagship project” in London.

Designed by Architects Allies and Morrison, Aldgate Place features “463 flats in a mixed-use scheme on the site of a car park, arranged around walkways”. Allies and Morrison had a vision to create a new destination for Aldgate that reflects the contemporary and urban qualities of the surrounding areas. From Shoreditch to The City and Whitechapel, the City of London is on the doorstep for residents at Aldgate Place.

The unusually generous public space is another reason why Aldgate Place is called a flagship project. Over 50% of the development is dedicated to new public realm spaces including two landscaped gardens, pedestrian streets and play areas. There will also be a four-star hotel, cafes, restaurants and shops. Additionally, all apartments also have outdoor amenity space, with either a balcony, terrace or winter garden.

Once a gateway through London Wall from the City to the East End of London, Aldgate remains a portal to London’s transport system, with the underground stations of Aldgate and Aldgate East two minutes by foot, while Tower Gateway DLR station is an 11 minute walk away.

Gary Patrick, Regional Sales Manager for Barratt London, commented: “Aldgate Place will make the most of the vast untapped potential of the Whitechapel area. Its connectivity is unparalleled, and the neighbourhood is unique in how it successfully merges the corporate and creative worlds of modern London”.

Winner of the Highly Commended Award in the Residential Category at the 2014 UK Property Awards, Aldgate Place merges the two worlds of high finance and artistic innovation, and is well positioned for your working week and fun-filled weekends.
