About the Building
The site was previously occupied by a chocolate manufacturer which is the reason behind the name. It was later used by the Metropolitan Police force before it became 20 live-work apartments and 14 residential apartments. ‘The Chocolate Studios’ was built in 2001 by Westcombe Homes which have been a leading residential developer for over 48 years.
