Butler

Adjacent to Tower Bridge, the iconic Butler's Wharf is the largest wharf building on the Thames. Viewed from the opposite side of the river, it dominates the view of the Southbank along Shad Thames. The large warehouse we know today was completed in 1873 and designed by James Tolley and Daniel Dale. At the time, it was the latest in industrial design, featuring fireproof floors, brick-vaulted basements and wrought iron roof trusses. During the 1970s, Butler's Wharf was home to artists' studios and artisan workshops. In the 1980s it was converted into loft apartments and restaurants. The development now benefits from a 24hr concierge, secure parking and spectacular views of London.

Residents are spoilt for choice with an abundance of bars and restaurants within the area. Shad Thames is a quiet residential area only 15 minutes’ walk from the City. Riverside South Bank cultural quarter which stretches from the Design Museum down to Tate Modern is on the building's doorstep.
