Facts

  • Ability Parkview features the retained central tower and a section of the Baker Street facade of Abbey House, which served as the headquarters for the Abbey Road Building Society (then known as Abbey National and now Abbey) from 1932 until 2002.
  • The prominent clock tower on the Baker Street frontage is topped by a 13 metre (43 feet) tall flagpole.
  • The site of Ability Parkview covers the address of 221B Baker Street, the fictional home of Sherlock Holmes. However, the address only came into existence when Baker Street was extended to the north in 1930, long after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books were written.
  • The retained 1920s east façade and open clock tower are art deco/art moderne in style and were designed by J. J. Joass.
