Located in the heart of Zone 1 in Islington and within easy reach of Old Street’s tech hub, Berkeley’s 250 City Road development is a stone’s throw from the City of London and the tirelessly fashionable culture hotspot Shoreditch.
An eclectic mixed-use scheme designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners, it encompasses an elegant, contemporary collection of apartments, duplexes, and penthouses and hotel-style resident amenities.

The architectural focal point of this landmark development is the magnificent duo of towers, positioned atop a podium structure and standing at an impressive 42 and 36 storeys in height.
A range of homes are available across 250 City Road offering buyers the choice of high-rise London living in one of the development’s two iconic towers or of views of the extensive landscaped grounds in one of the newer apartment buildings, Siena and Vermont House.
Most recently, Berkeley has launched the Luna and Bollinder collection of homes which combine elegance with ultra-convenience; premium luxury interiors and expansive private outdoor space are paired with an impressive high specification – including the latest in-home technology.
The Luna Collection comprises 10 two and three-bedroom apartments on the seventh floor, each with a large balcony or terrace and views over the beautifully landscaped gardens, while the Bollinder Collection features three two-bedroom duplexes, providing dual-level living.
Each of these duplexes benefits from a private garden terrace on the ground floor as well as a balcony leading from the main living area on the upper floor and overlooking the courtyard.

The large outside spaces on offer, range from 326 sq ft to up to an impressive 2,129 sq ft. Exceptionally sized for a home in Zone 1, they provide ample space for relaxation, work or entertaining.
The homes offer a luxury interior specification and all feature a versatile open-plan layout to suit a range of lifestyles.
Kitchens are sleek and contemporary, featuring integrated Miele and Siemens appliances including wine coolers.
Bedrooms benefit from plush carpeting and bespoke fitted wardrobes with integrated sensor lights.
The bath and shower rooms include composite stone vanity tops, brushed nickel fittings, large format marble effect tiles and exquisite Deco-inspired cabinets with fluted glass doors and black metal frames.

There are two interior colour schemes in the kitchens and bathrooms across the collection; the Dawn palette comprises paler hues creating a timeless, elegant look, while the Dusk palette offers rich, deep tones for a bolder statement.
Engineered oak chevron flooring, zoned underfloor heating and comfort cooling provide the finishing luxury touches.
In addition, every apartment in The Luna and Bollinder Collection will be installed with Zuma, a high-performance immersive device that controls sound and lighting.
Berkeley is the first developer to install Zuma in its homes, providing the ultimate immersive experience and enabling residents to seamlessly achieve the desired mood across different rooms of the home.
An array of on-site amenities are on offer at 250 City Road, including a private gym, yoga studio, reading room and private screening room.
There is also a fully equipped spa, complete with a 20-metre pool, jacuzzi, treatment room, sauna, and steam room.
Practicalities are taken care of with a 24-hour concierge on hand to help busy residents.
As well as residents’ amenities, the extensive public green space at 250 City Road – 1.9 acres in all and Wi-Fi enabled – provides a peaceful sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
An attractive boardwalk – which will facilitate al fresco dining – will lead down to a lawned area populated with sculptures, raised wildflower beds, newly planted trees and water features.
A mix of restaurants and cafés will occupy the ground floor commercial premises, in addition to the many exceptional bars and restaurants in the area, including the Michelin starred Café Gascon and St John.
