the origins

Originally an office building in the heart of St Alban’s, BYM’s strategy for the Abbey View scheme was to undertake a conversion of the office building to a residential scheme.

the brief

Developed under permitted development rights, Abbey View was designed to provide cost-effective apartments for the local and London commuter markets using quality but good value materials with a focus on durability.

design philosophy

The apartments at Abbey View were designed to create compact but stylish modern open plan environments. Carefully engineered living space was complemented by high quality and durable materials chosen to stand the test of time.


A selection of 118 studio to two-bedroom contemporary and stylish apartments aimed at the young professional who works in London or St Albans. Just a 1-minute walk from St Albans Abbey station, these chic and modern apartments offer a train connection to London St Pancras in as little as 18 minutes. All 118 units have now been sold to a combination of individual investors and a bulk investor.

the properties

The spacious and light-filled apartments in this exceptional new office conversion provide the latest in urban living with a superb location. Abbey View will attract young professionals with its open plan layouts, modern interior design, Italian styled kitchens and high-quality fixtures and fittings. The excellent quality interiors are designed to be low maintenance yet exceptionally durable and high on style.
