Description of Boundary

Boundary officially opened on New Year’s Eve 2008 and is the first project from Prescott & Conran Limited; subsequent projects have included Albion, Lutyens and Château Boundary.

The new-format Boundary building includes three restaurants and bars; 12 individually designed guest bedrooms, plus five suites; a small British food store; and a bakery.

The original building, a late Victorian warehouse, was carefully converted over a period of three years prior to the launch in 2008. During the development period, special attention was given to preserving the most attractive industrial features, from the scale of the various spaces - especially the huge double-height basement with its pavement light wells and alcove areas - to the original brickwork - both inside and out - together with the many sash windows that now provide an abundance of light for each of the bedrooms.

Great care was taken to protect and restore these key features. At the same time, a new two-storey glass, steel and copper extension designed by Conran & Partners was introduced, and two very ‘green’ bore holes were drilled and now help to run the majority of the mechanical plant. Additionally, many bespoke pieces of furniture were created for the restaurants, suites and bedrooms, unusual materials were procured from around the world, handmade beds crafted, reclaimed bathroom fittings restored, custom-made kitchen equipment ordered and a wide collection of art, from special commissions to pieces from private collections, introduced.

The rooftop garden also benefits from two 100-plus-year-old olive trees and a unique humidor that was purchased at auction in Cuba. Terence Conran oversaw all aspects of the project.

Hurford Salvi Carr has announced that 8 spectacular penthouse apartments with stunning views of the City at Boundary St, Shoreditch E1, have been sold to an investor.

The development, which is superbly located at the junction of Redchurch Street and Shoreditch High Street opposite Conran’s Boundary, hotel, restaurant, cafe and deli and close to Shoreditch House, was due to be launched in May but one investor stepped in to buy all 8 apartments.

This mixed use development by Shoregate Properties Ltd incorporates a restaurant on the ground floor, offices floors on the 1st and 2nd floors with the apartments situated on the 3rd and 4th floors and roof terraces above.
The building including the apartments have been designed by Buckley Gray Yeoman and feature under-floor heating, comfort cooling and high quality kitchen and bathroom fitments. Six of the eight apartments have private terraces.

The list of disappointed buyers for these exceptional apartments demonstrate the popularity of Shoreditch, which now achieves prices on line with other City locations for well specified apartments.

The penthouses are now available to rent

1 bedroom starting from £650 pw
2 bedrooms starting from £800 pw
