CEO Manhattan Loft Corporation
The founding father, developer and CEO of Manhattan Loft Corporation, Harry Handelsman is renowned for his revolutionary and innovative eye. Once ignored London districts such as Bankside, Clerkenwell and King’s Cross have been rejuvenated at the hand of Handelsman. His projects include the impressive restoration of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, The Edison and Manhattan Loft Gardens. Born in Germany, Handelsman’s parents were both holocaust survivors, and Handelsman himself lived in Belgium, France, America and Canada before establishing himself in London. It was in America that Handelsman cultivated his love of property and modern art. After experiencing the accommodation of New York hipsters hanging out in their loft apartments, Handelsman decided to recreate the idea in the UK; thus loft-living was born to London.
