First Class London Living The transformation of a landmark site in the true centre of London, Postmark is the most connected neighbourhood the world capital has ever known. Embracing two boroughs – one in west London; one in east – this nascent address is like no other.
For the first time, two Zone 1 postcodes – WC1 and EC1 – are being united to create a magnetic fusion of the energetic, eclectic East and traditional, iconic West.
Over six hundred bespoke apartments, plus retail and open spaces, will rise up on the flagship site of the historic Royal Mail Mount Pleasant sorting office to create a super-connected new community.
Welcome to the Neighbourhood. Never before has there been the opportunity to live in the heart of London, surrounded in all directions by the best this great city has to offer – the glorious green spaces of Russell Square, the historic legal charm of Chancery Lane, the cool bars and artisan eateries of Farringdon, Kings Cross and Exmouth Market, the grandeur of Bloomsbury… and never will there be again; this is the last development of this scale in central London.
A fresh mix of landscaped public and private spaces, including colourful gardens and playgrounds, will vivify this major new address.
Postmark is to unfold in four phases on 6.25 acres, divided into two distinctive chapters, each identified by the individual postcode in which it lies – WC1 and EC1. Each chapter features two uniquely designed, complementary phases that come together to create an address exciting as its location. All four will be completed by 2024 creating a major mix-used development offering 681 homes, over 20,000 sq.ft of commercial and retail space, and new open public space that covers over 50% of the site.
All will enjoy the inimitable buzz of having one of Great Britain’s most important working mail centres right next door. And, of course, all of the heart of glorious London on the doorstep.
First Class Education. An educational superpower, central London offers exceptionally rich pickings for students, ‘just down the road’
London is a heartland of academic excellence. Its first-class, highly international institutions consistently attract the best minds and the most talented individuals from all over the earth.
Among its greatest former students stand peace activist Nelson Mandela, environmentalist David Attenborough, founder of modern nursing Florence Nightingale, 35th US President John F Kennedy, and modernist novelist Virginia Woolf.
Close to Postmark are many of very best colleges and universities in the world, not least two Royal Academies, London School of Economics, SOAS, Central Saint Martin’s, and the London College of Fashion, to name a few.
Parents or parents-to-be seeking the best education for their children also have a spectacular set of local options: top primary, preparatory, international and high schools are all within walking distance or just a short drive away.
Postmark will bring together disparate and sporadic areas of regeneration around London’s financial and entrepreneurial quarters that will transform this part of central London.
Delivered in four chapters by celebrated architectural studios; Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Wilkinson Eyre, and Allies and Morrison to create a collection of thoughtfully distinguished areas that knit Postmark into the architectural mosaic of its setting. The first phase, West Central 1 boasts interior specifications designed by acclaimed interior design firm, Conran and Partners, their palettes taking inspiration from the history of the site blending the bold, sophisticated aesthetics of the East and West.
