Residential Market


Leading Prime Central London estate agency Anderson Rose has launched to the market a spectacular duplex penthouse at Principal Tower, which is one of London’s tallest buildings and just moments from the City of London. Priced at £9.9 million, the penthouse occupies the same site on Principal Place as Amazon’s UK headquarters. The penthouse provides three bedrooms, three bathrooms and breath-taking panoramic views across London.


Principal Tower and Principal Place are iconic Shoreditch sites designed by award-winning architects Foster & Partners. The offices at Principal Place were completed in 2016 and the residential offering at Principal Tower was completed in 2018. Amazon opened their UK headquarters on the site in the same year.

The buildings sit on an historic patch of London, with part of the development located on the site of the extramural northern cemetery of Roman Londinium. An archaeological excavation undertaken in 2012, prior to the commencement of building work, discovered a hoard of 133 Roman coins. The latest coin was dated to A.D. 397–402, and the hoard is thought to have been buried at the end of the first decade of the fifth century.


The penthouse itself reflects the vibe of its surrounding Shoreditch area, exuding a cool, industrial vibe. Upon entering the penthouse residents are met with the centrepiece of the home, the incredible reception area. The reception offers floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows showcasing London’s skyline, providing views of North London, Canary Wharf, the City and Tower Bridge. The room is the perfect entertaining space, providing three metre ceiling heights, herringbone flooring, air conditioning and Lutron lighting.

To the left of the reception room, residents will access the penthouse’s kitchen via an open-plan walkway. The kitchen is complete with integrated Miele appliances including two double ovens, a wine cooler and coffee machine.

From the kitchen, there is direct balcony access where residents and guests can dine alfresco and enjoy the unparalleled views across London. The first floor of the penthouse also provides a guest bathroom.


The second floor of the duplex provides all three of the penthouse’s bedrooms, each complete with an en-suite bathroom. Both guest bedrooms have ample storage apace and the guest en-suite bathrooms have been designed to an exacting standard with stunning marble and glass finishes. The penthouse’s principal bedroom offers direct views across the City from a curved corner window. The room has both a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom complete with a free-standing bathtub.


Residents will also benefit from the amazing amenities at Principal Tower which include a luxury swimming pool, gym, steam room, sauna/spa, residents' lounge, cinema room, 24-hour concierge and underground allocated parking.


Scott Joseph, Head of Head of Prime Central London at Anderson Rose, said: “This truly special duplex penthouse at Principal Tower is one of London’s most exclusive homes, providing exceptional living spaces, with incredible views across the entire city from every direction.

“Benefitting from its position on the 48th floor and its panoramic glass windows, the apartment offers a very rare sales opportunity. Furthermore, the development’s position in the heart of Shoreditch, on the site of Amazon’s UK headquarters, offers a London professional the chance to live in one of the most exciting tech and business centres in Europe.”


Principal Tower is conveniently located at the centre of Shoreditch, looking onto the famous Spitalfields market and less than a five-minute walk from Liverpool Street Station which provides a number of transport links with a convenient commute across both the City and the country.

The Principal Tower Penthouse is on sale for £9,900,000.
