Galliard Homes - The Stage, EC2A
Already dubbed the hipster capital of London, Shoreditch is jam-packed with eccentric eateries, ultra-chic cafes and a never-ending number of unconventional stores to explore. Now, with its proximity to the City and its anticipated Crossrail hub, Liverpool Street, catching the eye of investors – and not the mention the surge in technology giants setting up in the area surrounding Old Street – Shoreditch’s growing reputation as a prime residential location is unstoppable.
Part of Galliard’s elite Platinum Collection, The Stage will be an accompanying feature of Shoreditch’s rising desirability, boasting an architecturally striking 37-storey residential tower and more than 400,000 sq. ft. of mixed-use space to include pop-up shops, multi-level commercial space, a heritage centre and a performing arts pavilion, plus public landscaped gardens.
Whilst it is expected this development will play a key part in the area’s future, this site’s past plays an equally important part. The Stage proudly sits on the grounds of Shakespeare’s original Curtain Theatre, which dates back more than 400 years ago to 1577. It is said to be where timeless plays such as ‘Henry V’ were premiered, and where the genius playwright himself performed. Thus, a sunken amphitheatre and heritage centre – featuring the remains of the theatre discovered by the Museum of London Archaeology – will be showcased in the very heart of the development, within what’s set to become one of London’s largest new public piazzas.
The residential tower will be home to 412 luxury apartments, set to include a diverse range of studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments, and four bedroom duplexes – all boasting access to a private balcony and/or terrace. Key property features will include comfort cooling, programmable mood lighting, high-end integrated kitchen appliances, electric mat underfloor bathroom warming, and a bespoke entertainment unit with wireless technology and an inclusive 40-50” LED smart TV.
