The former headquarters of the British Poppy Foundation, this beautiful red brick building from 1925 has been many things, from the manufacturing place of the Remembrance Day poppies to a toy importer’s warehouse.
Prior to King’s Cross being reinvented, York Central was converted into 20 large lofts, with 2,000-3,000 ft2 layouts making them among largest in London. They were sold as shells, most retaining the exposed concrete soffits and pillars for an authentic loft feel.
