Luxury Italian Inspired Loft


Located on Francis Street, Westminster, in a former Victorian sorting office, a loft-style apartment in a sought-after development has launched to the rental market with estate agent Dexters. Bringing Shoreditch-style interiors and designed by Italian designer Alessandro Crivelli, the Francis Street apartment is available to rent for £1,384 per week.

Originally built in 1893 to the designs of RH Boyce, the Francis Street building has a smart red brick façade and served as the SW1 sorting office for the postal service. In 2009, the building underwent extensive transformation led by renowned Italian designer Alessandro Crivelli, making headlines and becoming a sought-after development in the SW1 area.

Crivelli leads EST4TE FOUR, an international development group that transforms buildings into creative workspaces and sought-after homes in London, Milan and New York. The five-storey building, known as Howick Place, offers 120,000 sq. ft. of mixed-use space, with luxury apartments on the upper floors and creative commercial spaces on the ground floor, including galleries and showrooms. Since its completion, the building has also hosted fashion shows for Chanel, Swarovski, Matthew Williamson and Twenty8Twelve as well as an exhibition for Annie Liebovitz.

Available for immediate tenancy, the Francis Street Apartment is located on the first floor and offers 1,495 sq. ft. of sleek, open-plan living space with exposed beams and large windows bringing loft-style living and evoking the building’s industrial history.

The kitchen has fully integrated appliances with white counter tops and handle-less cupboards for a modern aesthetic. The open-plan living area is filled with natural light and is ideal for a tenant wanting to entertain friends or family.

There are two bedrooms, both offering bespoke fitted wardrobes for discrete storage, one with an ensuite bathroom. One of the bedrooms could be used as a separate study if needed for home-working, and there is also a further bathroom accessible from the living area. Throughout the apartment there is comfort cooling and underfloor heating, as well as a hotel-style concierge for the building.

Charlie Daniels of Dexters in Westminster says: “Francis Street has been transformed from its former industrial use as a postal sorting office into a collection of luxe apartments and sleek creative spaces, it has become a sought-after development for those wanting a central Westminster home. The apartment provides loft-style living that wouldn’t look out of place in Shoreditch, with open-plan space and exposed beams.”

Francis Street is available to rent for £1,384 per week through Dexters. For further information please contact 020 7590 9575 or visit www.dexters.co.uk.
