The Exchange Building is a former tobacco factory in the heart of Spitalfields. Built in 1936 on the former site of the Royal Cambridge Music Hall, it was originally an extension of the former tobacco works of Godfrey Philips & Son trading at 116 Commercial St. It was rebuilt and extended by W. Gillbee Scott and BWH Scott in 1922-1925.

This spacious contemporary third floor apartment features two large double bedrooms, two bathrooms (master with en-suite), large entrance area perfect for home working, semi open-plan fully fitted kitchen with a huge open reception room featuring large windows allowing the natural light to flood in, high ceilings, wood flooring throughout and ample storage space. Furthermore, the apartment has a secure gated underground parking space.
