Bethnal Green is London at its very best – a rich and diverse mix of styles and infuences, full of life and vitality. Bethnal Green has become known as a vibrant area on the fringe of the City of London and is a place of continuing transformation.

Thornsett are set to further enhance this transformation by introducing Macpherson Apartments: an exciting new development of 14 luxury homes, as well as a new church and community facilities. The development overlooks Paradise Gardens just seconds from Bethnal Green Underground Station.

The new Macpherson Apartments building is in the heart of the Heritage Quarter of Bethnal Green. This conservation area is centred on the Grade I and II listed buildings comprising the V&A Museum of Childhood and the Church of St. John. The setting is further enhanced by the greenery of Paradise Gardens and Museum Gardens – both of which were originally part of the common grazing green which gave Bethnal Green its name. The new apartments being built by Thornsett are helping to fund a new church, community facilities and café, which will continue to serve the people of Bethnal Green.
