Blake Tower

In 2013 Redrow entered into a development agreement with the City of London Corporation to convert an existing Grade II listed, 16 storey building into 74 new homes. Located in the iconic Barbican Estate, the building had previously housed a YMCA hostel. A complete overhaul was required in order to provide housing and protect the building’s long term welfare. Active engagement with stakeholders informed Blake Tower’s transformation, and the final design celebrates the wider Barbican’s heritage and design-led ethos.
