10 Best Luxury New-Builds on Sale in London
No. 1 Palace Street
No. 1 Palace Street was a Victorian hotel that hosted guests of Buckingham Palace functions and, rumour has it, royal mistresses. The newly restored building that fronts Buckingham Gate has apartments with huge entertaining spaces and high ceilings. Master suites overlook Buckingham Palace’s gardens (albeit through dense foliage for most of the year).
The Broadway, a mixed-use development of 258 apartments in six towers, sits on the site of the former New Scotland Yard headquarters near Victoria in central London. The complex has a jewel theme, with pairs of apartment towers named after a famous diamond – Sancy, Paragon, Cullinan – and the Squire + Partners designed façade featuring unusual diamond-shaped windows.
