Former John Lewis Warehouse Transformed Into Luxury Apartments

A former warehouse building that was once home to the John Lewis department store has been transformed into 16 apartments and a penthouse.

19 Bolsover Street, in the heart of Fitzrovia, aims to combine Edwardian elegance with contemporary urban design.

Designed by TF Architects, the period façade has been retained and restored, while interiors have been completely remodelled.

The building features engineered timber flooring, capacity for in-ceiling media system, LED down lights, heating, cooling and video entry systems.

There is also an on-site concierge service to cater for residents’ needs.

The scheme also offers six duplex apartments – split-level residences with feature staircases leading to the bedrooms. Each of the duplex apartments also has a private courtyard.

Former Fitzrovia residents include playwright George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf and poet Arthur Rimbaud.

More recently, it has become a hub for media and advertising companies, including the BBC and the fashion industry.

The luxury flagship stores of Bond Street are just 15 minutes away on foot, while Regent’s Park is also a short stroll away.

Apartments are on sale for between £1,250,000 and £8,500,000.

Nigel Fleming, residential development partner at Knight Frank, said: “19 Bolsover Street offers a highly sought-after combination of beautiful period building with new build interiors; a real rarity in the Fitzrovia market.

“With only 17 units available and positioned within walking distance of some of the capital’s best shops and restaurants, the scheme is a unique addition to Fitzrovia and we anticipate that it will have strong market appeal.”
