The Development

Launches Spring 2014

The tower at the Lexicon, delivered by world-renowned Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM), adds to Central London’s dynamic skyline. At 36-storeys high it stands as Islington's tallest building. The City Basin waterside apartments, moments from Angel tube and Silicon Roundabout, feature unrivalled views, spa, lounge and 24hr concierge. It’s the place from which to write your own life story.

The Apartments

The one, two and three bedroom apartments take their inspiration from the culture and landscape of Lexicon’s location. The result is an experience that breathes luxury, glamour and delight into every home. Beautiful and inspiring, they let you shape and colour your life as you please. 

The Location

Lexicon’s superb canalside location sits beautifully within London’s booming east and central neighbourhoods. Experience Islington’s unique charm, bustling restaurants and cafes to the north. Get inspired in nearby creative Clerkenwell or embrace the vibrant social and cultural scene of Shoreditch just east of Lexicon.

Getting Around

Where will your story go when you live in one of the most well connected areas of Central London? Angel, Old Street and Farringdon tube stations are moments away. The City Road pulses with taxis and buses. The recently transformed stations at Kings Cross and St Pancras are springboards abroad, making weekend trips to Europe as easy as they are exciting. Somewhere closer? Try a kayak or narrow boat along the Regent’s Canal system, stretching right across London.

Local Area Map

Lexicon feels close to everywhere in central London. Every direction from its waterside location offers a different social, cultural and entertainment choice within easy reach. Or, just get away from the hustle and bustle of the City for a leisurely stroll or bike ride along the tranquil Regent’s Canal that beckons at the base of the development.
