Living in Shoreditch

A former suburb of the City, Shoreditch is stretched in the perimeter formed by East End, Borough of Hackney and Central London. Crossed by Kingsland Road, Shoreditch High Street, Hackney Road and Old Street it was in the past the place where held theatre shows. The district still holds the Victorian remains that give a specific architectural note; they are surrounded by buildings with contemporary features, occupied by well-priced shops at their ground floors. The walls are painted by local artists being the emblem of resistance of a neighborhood until recently considered one of the most cosmopolitan culturally speaking. Narrow crowded streets are lined by buildings that still present elements of Art Deco, which made Shoreditch famous as one of the London fashionable districts.

Shoreditch estate agents recommend the residential area of Shoreditch to all average and above average income persons, as lately the area turned into an area occupied by old age persons, which raised the Shoreditch property prices. Proximity to areas such as Barbican, Hoxton or Clerkenwell increased the level of Shoreditch flat prices. The majority of the former industrial area was transformed into offices and most of the new Shoreditch apartments were built on the spot of the old warehouses. The Shoreditch property value has grown also due media businesses, clubs, pubs and restaurant appeared in the area.
