About the building
Meranti House is one of the modern buildings in the award-winning Goodman’s Fields development by Berkeley Homes. The complex is considered the most luxurious and prestigious in Aldgate area, offering world class facilities to its residents, including a 24-hour concierge, underground swimming pool and spa, private screening room, resident’s business lounge and landscaped gardens. On top of all that, there are pedestrianised areas with high class restaurants, cafes, and shops. To illustrate how desirable the complex is, in 2016, Hamish Mackie was awarded the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association’s Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Fountains for the Goodman’s Fields Horses – six bronze life and a quarter size horse sculptures, commissioned by Berkeley Homes for the main piazza at Goodman’s Fields.
About the Area
Aldgate has been described by the press as ‘the most exciting neighbourhood in Europe’. Certainly, the diversity of the area is unrivalled. From being a quiet, non-descript location next to the City of London ten years ago, the area has been completely transformed since the Aldgate regeneration started in 2013. It has made this neighbour a place full of excitement where the new and the old merge, creating a vibrant district where it is possible to find a piece of London history (‘Jack the ripper’ tours rival in popularity) alongside signature restaurants or luxurious high-rise apartments.
The leisure offer is unrivalled, with independent cinemas (Curzon just opened a local branch) or the Whitechapel gallery, at the forefront of the arts, shopping is guaranteed in nearby Spitalfields market with hundreds of shops, and those looking for urban landscapes only have to walk five minutes down to the river, and they will find themselves with the charming St. Katharine’s Docks, and the most stunning views from the north of the Thames, including of Tower Bridge, The Tower of London and the Shard.
One of the appeals of Aldgate has always been that is one of the best-connected locations in London. This property is located within 10 minutes’ walk of four zone 1 underground stations: Aldgate East, Aldgate, Liverpool Street and Tower Hill, which provide access to five underground lines (Central, District, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and Central lines), it is also within walking distance of two main Rail stations (Fenchurch Street and Liverpool Street), and the Docklands Light Railway in Tower Gateway.
The New Elizabeth line set to revolutionise transport across London and both Whitechapel and Liverpool Street stations are within walking distance of this property. The area is also well served by numerous bus lines running through Whitechapel High Street and Commercial Road.
