The Canal Building was formerly a manufacturers’ warehouse for the clothing company C&A and was converted by the Spitalfields-based architect Child Graddon Lewis in the late 1990s.
About the Building
This is a classic 1930s industrial property which has been converted to the highest standard. The Canal Building is extremely well placed on the historic Regent’s Canal and is located at 135 Shepherdess Walk.
At its original conversion in 2000, there were 79 loft apartments sold as spaces without utilities in place – at a time when this was pioneering. Fast forward 15 years and the Canal Building is one of the most sought after loft buildings within the Canal Basin that combines waterside tranquillity and easy access to Old Street (the Silicon Roundabout) and is also perfectly located to access the boutique shops and bars of Islington’s Upper Street.
About the apartment
This south-facing first floor one bedroom loft apartment offers an open-plan spacious living area and has generously sized windows providing superb natural light. There are high ceilings throughout and the design of the scheme has left some of the original features, such as exposed concrete, within the loft space and the gridded façade makes this a truly landmark building.
The building also offers 24-hour concierge and comes with a secure parking space. The building has been split vertically into 5 buildings: each building has a lift and wide communal stair case with exposed brickwork.
As a breeding ground of creativity the City Basin and surrounding area attracts everyone from the tech savvy to fashionistas and the artistically-inclined. The area is known for its trendiness and heterogeneity so you’ll never be short of things to do in and around the area. Top hotspots include Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton Square, and Upper Street — all of which deliver an amazing array of restaurants, bars and clubs, as well as hidden gems down unlikely side-roads. Rich in art and creativity, pop-up shops and stalls appear as quickly as they leave, continuously reinventing the area with something inspiring and new.
Old Street Station is a short walk and provides handy links to the Northern Line. Liverpool Street station is just a short bus ride away from City Road — with its four tube lines: Central Line; Circle; Hammersmith and City; and the Metropolitan as well as the National Rail links and London Overground. Also, heading north it’s just a short walk to Angel tube station where you can pick up the Northern Line which is also handy for King’s Cross station and its national rail services.
Asking Price £750,000
