The magnificent London Warehouse is a former brick and iron framed warehouse built in 1867 to store cotton bails before being distributed to the mills in London. The warehouse was one of four that had originally been built and the only one remaining. Much of the original detailing is still evident, in particular the wide cast-iron columns supporting large riveted wrought-iron girders, cast-iron floor joists and stunning brick barrelled ceilings.
The building is being transformed by David Archer of Archer Humphryes who led the redevelopments of the Chiltern Firehouse and Great Northern Hotels. The building is being completely transformed to provide 166 stunning aparthotel units including studio, one and two bedroom units together with a mixture of an all-day bistro, co-working space, cocktail bar, barber and flower shop on the double height ground floor.
