"The property has been brought to market by Capco, the firm behind the astonishing reinvention of Covent Garden into an internationally-recognised shopping and dining destination. And as the proud owner of an important chick of this ongoing success story, the new resident will get access to exclusive events and opportunities with their retail neighbours"
"Standing in the middle of the vast reception room of her latest project - a three bedroom penthouse occupying the fifth floor of the Floral court, a development in the heart of Covent Garden - the interior designer Sophie Ashby announces "It is eclectic, colourful, bold, playful; there is a sense of humour"

The Daily Telegraph
"The gentrification of Covent Garden was topped off this week with the launch of a boutique development of 31 apartments, giving people the rare opportunity to buy new-build properties in the heart of one of London’s oldest neighbourhoods."
"Seen by many as the real heart of London, Covent Garden buzzes with the excitement of opera and theatre and the showmanship of the Piazza, which draws 45 million visitors a year. The listed colonnaded market area has been a shopping hub since the Eighties. The last 10 years have seen a discreet makeover by Capco, the area’s main landowner, with a masterplan for a “modern luxury retail quarter” and homes to match."
Town and Country
"It’s rare to have access to any balcony space in central London, let alone the four private terraces at your disposal here, each planted with flowers, meadows and foliage by the landscape-architecture practice Hay Designs."
"When a new penthouse comes on to the market in London, the selling point is usually the jaw-dropping view. But in the case of Capco’s latest offering, which tops off its Floral Court Collection in Covent Garden, the panoramic vistas from the four roof terraces have to compete with the impeccably dressed interiors."
