Bankside Lofts sits on the south bank of the River Thames, next to the Tate Modern and opposite St Paul’s Cathedral. It was built in the early 1990’s by the Manhattan Loft Corporation and formed part of the larger redevelopment of the Bankside area which runs from Blackfriars to London Bridge.
Each of the 120 apartments is individually designed which leads to the building's unique shape and character.
As an area, Bankside is now regarded as one of the most desirable riverside locations. This is due to the views it affords across the Thames and its proximity to the City but over the centuries it has undergone many different guises.
In Elizabethan times the area was renowned for its theatres and brothels, with Shakespeare being a local resident. From the 18th century the area grew industrially and became one of London’s trade hubs until it went into decline after World War II. The area stayed in a state of disrepair until the 1990’s when large scale investment came into the area.
Located in Hopton Street, SE1, Bankside Lofts is within walking distance of the City and West End, as well as the attractions of the South Bank.
