That's what they are calling it. The fourth tower. Blake Tower. Even Mordor only had two, but the Barbican now has four. (To those of us who have lived here for a while, it is the YMCA building.) It is soon to be gutted, refurbished, and returned to life as 74 luxury flats. Find out more details by clicking here.
Nobody builds flats and sells them anymore. Now they have computer-generated pictures created of gorgeous-looking flats. We buy them, and then the developers get round to building them. So it is that the first flats have been snapped up at the pre-launch, while the builders have got little further than putting up hoarding down at Fann Street.
There is always a lot of competition for Barbican flats. If you are interested in buying, you should make sure the selling agents know, so you get a crack at the next tranche to be put on the market. The flats are being sold by Frank Harris & Co, Barbican office, 020 7600 7000.
They don't mention Blake in the brochure, but really he needs no introduction.
