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 completed the development 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
