The historic Ten Trinity Square in London is being restored by Reignwood Group to become one of the finest residential and hotel addresses in the capital city.

With its riverside location beside the Tower of London, this Grade II listed Beaux-Arts building is the work of Edwardian architect, Sir Edwin Cooper.

On completion of the four-year extensive restoration by Reignwood, Ten Trinity Square will house 41 serviced residences, a private members club and the 98-room Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square.

Ten Trinity Square is an iconic landmark, constructed without compromise. From the first moment I saw the building, I understood that its history and heritage are what makes it truly unique, said Songhua Ni, President of Reignwood Investments UK.

Opened as the Port of London Authority headquarters in 1922 by Prime Minister David Lloyd George, its ballroom hosted the 1946 reception of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Severe damage to the building occurred during World War II, but a renovation in 1970 saw it prosper once more to become the European headquarters of insurance broker Willis Faber Limited.

The site on which it sits dates back to the Roman age, while it is also very close to where 17th Century diarist Samuel Pepys worked and lived. His account of The Great Fire of London in 1666 from his office in Seething Lane is legendary, especially as it started a stones throw from Ten Trinity Square.

Claire Tomalin, author of Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self, said, Ten Trinity Squares unique Thames-side location provides a portrait into Pepyss empire: the naval expert, the writer and the first modern man. This section of London also reaches back to the Romans there is a tremendous amount of physical history here, but also emotional history.

The preservation of Ten Trinity Squares antiquity, from its carved portraits and exterior stonework has been paramount to Reignwood Group, Aukett Swanke, the appointed architects and MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology).

Ten Trinity Square offers the exclusive opportunity to purchase a rare slice of Londons heritage within a treasured London landmark, to experience the grandeur of the building and the stories it whispers, said Suzette Vela Burkett, Managing Director of Aukett Swanke.

Prices for Ten Trinity Square, The Residences at Four Seasons start at 5 million.
