Scott Brownrigg Interior Design has completed the show apartment and Sales and Marketing Suite at 250 City Road.

The design of the apartment presents a sumptuous, chic aesthetic that showcases the latest in luxe designed for modern, flexible living.

The interiors at once contrast with and complement the scheme’s cutting-edge exterior aesthetic. A refined, sleek interior finish exudes calm and resonates with spaciousness while incorporating the latest technologies, such as underfloor heating and comfort cooling, throughout.

The two-bedroom show apartment is arranged to maximise living space, with the 505 sq ft open-plan living area taking centre stage, flanked by two commodious bedroom suites. A glazed winter garden adjacent to floor-to-ceiling windows flood the expansive interior space with natural light and maximise the exceptional views. Grey wash timber floors and precision-appointed ceiling lights further enhance the aesthetic by leading the eye through space.

The master bath in the bathroom is stunningly configured with a free-standing, blue-tooth enabled tub – which can act as a speaker - positioned before double-aspect, floor-to-ceiling window, offering a visual treat without the resident being overlooked. A double vanity and large walk-in shower are finished in soft-hued, marble effect porcelain tiles, which express the room’s horizontal planes and, once again, lead the eye to the outside view.

The Greater London Authority has given the go-ahead for Berkeley's City Forum regeneration at 250 City Road in Islington.

This includes up to 995 homes, of which over 30% will be affordable, alongside 100,000 square feet of office space, 43,000 square feet for retail use, a hotel and a relocated data centre.

The decision follows two years of comprehensive public consultation and collaboration with the local authority.

Berkeley's plans will deliver much-needed regeneration for the area. The site's existing ageing office blocks are set to be demolished, while new homes and landscaping will breathe fresh life into this part of City Road.

Berkeley's Divisional Managing Director, Justin Tibaldi, says work will begin right away:

"We are delighted to have been given planning permission by the Mayor and will aim to get on site this summer. We want to bring real benefits to the area and to London as a whole, not least through a major investment in high quality affordable housing."

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: “London is enjoying an unprecedented population boom and by 2030 will become the first city in Europe to be home to ten million people. Building new homes and creating more jobs is absolutely crucial so that we can ensure this growth is sustainable.

Berkeley will now continue their dialogue with the local community as the regeneration begins in earnest.
