The Silk District, Whitechapel, E1

Bringing luxury to lively East London


Mount Anvil’s development takes inspiration from the area’s fabric trade heritage dating back to the 1700s. Located between London’s financial and technology hubs and surrounded by the rich heritage of this historic part of East London, the Silk District fuses the craftsmanship of the past with convenience and luxury of a modern development to create a fine living or investment opportunity. Sitting on the edge of the City of London, Whitechapel is one of London’s best located districts. To the east and west are Canary Wharf and the City, while Old Street’s tech hub is a short distance away. In the immediate area trade and industry has given way to art, small business and the creative sector to help make it one of London’s most fashionable neighbourhoods. Silk District residents are ideally placed to enjoy the hipster areas of Shoreditch and Hoxton, or to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of Brick Lane. Whitechapel Underground is just five minutes’ walk away and the opening of the Elizabeth Line will bring frequent services making Canary Wharf, the City and the West End only minutes away. Developed on the site of an old storage facility, The Silk District is a flowing collection of elegant towers and buildings in landscaped gardens. The links between the buildings, along streets and through gardens, encourage movement and interactions between the three main buildings — the Jacquard, Georgette and Bouchon — to create a community where neighbours mix, and friends bump into each other. The mix of uses on the site, with commercial and office space, shops and a café alongside the residential properties, creates a vibrancy that shifts as emphasis moves from the business of the day to the relaxation of the evening. During the day residents not taking advantage of the easy commuting times from Whitechapel can use the on-site co-working space, and in their downtime can enjoy the gym and spin room, or relax in the bookable on-site cinema room, while a 24-hour concierge is available for their needs. With a choice of studio, one-, two- or three-bedroom apartments that all offer views of the city or the beautiful grounds, the apartments are bright and airy, with floor-to-ceiling windows and muted palettes to create enviable living spaces. The interiors use Terrazzo-style tiling — with blacks and golds providing accents in the bathrooms and kitchens — that gives way to luxuriously soft carpeting in the bedrooms. The Silk District is located in a property hotspot, with London’s main financial and tech centres a short commute away, but still situated in a desirable neighbourhood of its own. The area frequently appears as a top recommendation for investment purchases and, with the arrival of the Elizabeth Line prices are expected to grow by 25% by 2024. Whether buying to live or invest the Silk District is one of London’s most exciting opportunities.
