'The Heron' in the City of London

The Square Mile or better known as the City of London has been the core of Central London since back in the medieval times. It is considered a city within a city that only covers a square mile and has become in the last few decades one of the strongest financial hubs in the world. It is home to many renowned global companies, such as Aviva, Lloyds Banking Group, BT Group, Unilever and world-famous law firms such as Hogan Lovells, Linklaters, Eversheds and Allen & Overy. Apart from its financial side, the City of London boasts of a rich cultural background with Europe’s biggest multi-arts and conference venue - The Barbican Centre.

Within this incredible area of the capital comes two of London’s most exquisite buildings, one commercial and the other residential. The first, completed back in 2011, is a 230m high commercial skyscraper called ‘Heron Tower’ and is considered the tallest building in the City of London financial district.

The second one, which will be the focus of this article, was completed in 2013 and is a residential building called The Heron. Also known as Milton Court, is a 36-storey apartment building strategically located near the Barbican Centre. Its construction was finalised in 2013 and it was the first residential development project in the City of London for over 30 years.

The initial project had foreseen the construction of 44 floors; however, after being heavily criticised it was reduced to 36 floors. Heron International and the City of London Corporation have funded approximately 85% of its total cost and the rest was financed by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The funding from the school came with a big reward as the lower floors of the building are now providing new and modern facilities, and that includes a splendid wood-panelled 608-seat concert hall, a horseshoe-shaped drama studio, as well as a studio theatre, studio suites and a lot of rehearsal space.

The Heron benefits from plenty of natural light through its majestic eight-storey high atrium that is at the heart of the building, as well as through a fantastic glass façade at the front. All apartments have been completed with high-quality fixtures and fittings, bespoke sized herringbone oak floors, dramatic feature stone walls and appliances that would satisfy even the most refined taste. The building has fantastic facilities and services, including a private gym and valet parking, a 24-hr porter service, lounge and recreational areas, a bar, a screening room, meeting rooms and a gorgeous roof garden.

If you think living in the City is the right place for you and would like to be part of The Heron dream, Engel & Völkers has the perfect home as we currently have two fantastic apartments for sale in this building.
