About the Building
Crawford Building is a prominent 22 storey building with glass façade strategically located in the junction of two important East London arteries, Commercial Street and Whitechapel High Street. The building sits above one of the entrances at Aldgate East underground station, something quite unusual in London and a great advantage as you can have public transport literally to the front door.
The building offers an interesting mix of uses with retail on the ground floor, offices on the lower levels and apartments in the higher floors. The building developed by Redrow approximately 8 years ago was one of the first examples of the Aldgate urban regeneration which has now turned the area into a vibrant residential destination with many shops, restaurants, and leisure options.
The building has an attractive glass façade and a very characteristic shape which defines the landscape of the local area, there is a 24-hour Concierge with a grand entrance hall leading to the lifts and the security features of CCTV and video entry phones.
