Project Description

Old Sorting House, 46 Essex Road, London N1 8LN

Since its construction in 1855, the building has been in single occupancy; first as the Northern District Post Office and later converted into a picture theatre as The Coronet in 1911. Post-war, the building was used as a hardware merchant’s warehouse, an antique shop and a furniture store from the 1990s until 2013.

Following a period of design evolution and refinement working with architects Ben Adams Architects, we are delighted to have commenced construction of our office and residential scheme for this iconic building producing:-

  • Headquarters office building with a net internal area of 20,400ft2 /1,895m2
  • Small business suite of 1,100ft2 /102m2
  • 1 x one bedroom self-contained private apartment of 732ft2/68m2
  • 1 x two bedroom self-contained duplex of 1,270ft2 /118m2

The main office building provides open plan floor plates averaging 5,000ft2


All enquires regarding future occupation should be addressed to our letting Agents, Colliers.
