Three-quarters of new luxury apartments in Old Street by property developer MHA London rented to students.

MHA London have delivered luxury, high-tech apartments and penthouses, transformed from a 1960s Brutalist-style office block in the capital’s tech hub.

The eight units – six two-bed apartments and two three-bed penthouses ranging from 811 sq ft to 1451 sq ft – rent for upto £1,300 a week. The ground floor has been retained as a commercial unit.

Three-quarters of the tenants are students, which cost up to £1,300 a week to rent, and include include floor-to-ceiling glass terraces, triple glazing, air-conditioning and Smart technology.

The high-end apartments at 30 Old Street include air conditioning, floor-to-ceiling glass roof terraces and balconies, triple glazing, and intuitive lighting.

The post-industrial style building, designed by the architect MWA, along with MHA’s in-house team, includes views of London’s skyline from St Paul’s Cathedral to the Shard.

Hossein Abedinzadeh, founder of MHA London, said: “We’re extremely proud of this unique redevelopment project as it exemplifies our experience and range of skillsets from planning to architectural design.

“Our team has transformed what was a rundown office block into a contemporary residential building with sought-after, high-spec apartments. It’s the attention to detail that marks this project out with intelligent lighting, triple glazed windows and hardwood flooring.

“The development is inadvertently catering to a new breed of undergraduate as six out of eight of the apartments are now rented to students. The high spec and price tag is not the usual accommodation you’d expect for someone still in education.”
