Postmark: A new Luxury Development in Holborn, WC1
Welcome to Postmark: a new Luxury Development in Holborn, WC1.
Postmark is delivering a new neighborhood to the heart of London: a contemporary address built on the foundations of a global British icon – Royal Mail.
Formerly the site of its flagship London sorting office, it will now be home to a new collection of apartments, tranquil open spaces and an array of complementary shops and restaurants.
Residents will benefit from a range of exclusive facilities including:
- Private dining room
- 24-hour concierge service
- Private lounge
- Rooftop terrace
The development has joined forces with globally renowned interiors and architectural design practice, Conran and Partners. The concept takes inspiration from the site’s historical use as a postal sorting office. As well as hinting at its postal heritage and the romance of letter writing, the bespoke design references the architecture of the new buildings and their location at the junction of the west (WC1) and east (EC1) London postcodes.
Looking to the west, Postmark is close to the culture and sophistication of Soho, Covent Garden, Theatreland and Bloomsbury; to the east, the eclectic, more bohemian neighbourhoods of Clerkenwell and Shoreditch are on the doorstep. Taking inspiration from this east-meets-west crossroads, the Conran and Partners has developed a bespoke interiors concept, exclusive to Postmark. The design of the resident amenities throughout West Central 1 present an expert fusion of these two iconic postcodes. The lobby areas evoke the different characters of each side of the city as well as the local postal heritage with a feature wall of custom illuminated grid-like boxes for residents’ mail, reminiscent of the sorting office’s original ‘pigeon holes’ – balanced by exposed concrete walls, herringbone timber floor, contemporary lighting and swivel stools modelled on those once used by Mount Pleasant sorting office workers. The residents’ cinema evokes the traditional members’ clubs and picture houses of the west with large, indulgent seating, rich fabrics and curtains, while the fitness studio and roof terrace create light, airy spaces finished with exposed stone, metal and woodwork.

Sitting across two postcodes, WC1 and EC1, and surrounding by Farrindgon, Clarkenwell, King’s Cross and Chancery Lane, Postmark London is at the epicentre of the leading creative, technology and knowledge industries and will be a symbol of connectivity.
Only Postmark residents can honestly say they live in the true centre of London. In all directions, the best of this great city waits to delight you on your doorstep.
Five underground stations (Farringdon, Russell Square, Chancery Lane, King’s Cross and Holborn), seven Tube lines and a first-class heritage – matchless transport options establish Postmark as London’s most connected neighbourhood.
Postmark is well placed to suit all tastes – from classic brands to avant-garde independents and boutiques. Walk west to try out the flagship stores of brilliant British designers such as Alexander McQueen, Chloé, and Dover Street Market, or wander east to the home of House of Hackney, Goodhood, and an abundance of independent contemporary creatives.
Musical and theatre lovers, just walk west or south for world-class theatres and their sell-out productions. Head north for jazz and comedy in quintessentially quirky Camden; and east for the hip hotels, cool bars and eclectic eateries of Shoreditch.
Close to Postmark are many of very best colleges and universities in the world, not least two Royal Academies, London School of Economics, SOAS, Central Saint Martin’s, and the London College of Fashion, to name a few.
