Description of Trafalgar One
Trafalgar One is a residential building overlooking Trafalgar Square, London WC2.
One of Trafalgar Square's most recognisable landmarks, The Canadian Pacific building was constructed as the London Headquarters of the eponymous North American railway, hotel and steamship company. Built to an extremely high standard and faced with Portland Stone, the building and its clock tower have been familiar to generations of visitors to London's most famous square.
Now as five superbly specified apartments, the building offers residents an unrivalled position on The Square; overlooking Nelson's Column, The National Gallery and St. Martin in the Fields. Now renamed Trafalgar One, the development completed in 2012 is the only residential building in London with a Trafalgar Square address, and therefore offers a prestigious location in which to live and entertain.
The top two floors of the redeveloped building contain a remarkable duplex Penthouse, with private lift access and views over both Trafalgar Square and (from a private rear terrace), The Mall and Buckingham Palace.
The apartments at Trafalgar One have been created within the shell of a landmark period building, but have been designed and specified without compromise to facilitate the lifestyle expectations of today's most discerning buyers.
Superbly laid out, with each apartment occupying an entire floor of the building; there are high coffered ceilings with recessed lighting, solid wood floors with underfloor heating, marble bathrooms, comfort-cooling, acoustically designed windows, state of the art security systems, cat 6 cabling throughout, a secure key-operated lift to all floors and fully programmable Crestron systems to manage lighting, heating and multi-media installations. Kitchens have been designed to operate as family (open-plan) facilities, or to be enclosed when staffed by caterers. There is also secure internal parking in an adjacent building, and a porter.
