Penthouse Living at London’s Hottest Address

Boasting unrivalled views of London and world-class accommodation and amenities, the hottest address for years to come is the new property at 5 Moor Lane – The Heron Penthouse Collection, with its luxury-defining suites.

The slender 36-storey tower comprises 285 apartments, all luxuriously designed with sheer comfort and exclusivity in mind. The two penthouses, one facing north and the other facing south, both offer remarkable views of London’s skyline. The penthouses span 6000 sq. ft. and 4000 sq. ft. and consist of either four bedrooms and four bathrooms or three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Besides their stunning backdrops (including of St. Paul’s Cathedral), the suites are built with double-height spaces, floor-to-ceiling glass and retractable roofs, ultimately creating novel ‘indoor-outdoor’ rooms.


At The Heron, the focus is on maximizing light and space. Therefore, a recurring feature found within the penthouses is thoughtful window placement – whether from floor to ceiling or across the ceiling, the windows offer unparalleled views, adding a special touch to this luxurious abode. You will never tire of the view.

The Heron’s interiors are truly contemporary and innovative, featuring Sahara Noir marble floors, Just Rain electrically controlled shower rooms and Boffi kitchens (with Bianco quartz stone and Gaggeneau appliances) ‘designed with a connoisseur’s eye for detail’. This is as sleek as it gets.


The South Penthouse, for example, sports a striking marble-clad entrance hall befitting a contemporary art gallery, an elegant guest bedroom and bathroom and a cinema room wired for superb surround sound, so you can ‘go to the movies’ in the comfort of your own home.

The North Penthouse features more or less the same contemporary design elegance, with a twist: a combined kitchen and living space overlooking the ever-changing vista of the City’s skyline.


Aside from the two penthouses, The Heron offers a variety of two- to three-bedroom apartments boasting two-bed lateral layouts and views of The Shard and St Paul’s.

Of course, residing at this prestigious address comes with easy access to a variety of Michelin-starred restaurants, bars, shops and boutiques. The Heron is located within close proximity of Barbican, Moorgate and Liverpool Street Station.
