IN POPULAR CULTURE
Sloane Street, along with Sloane Square , also gives its name to "Sloane Rangers ", originally applied to the stereotypical kind of young upper class English ladies seen in the area. The expression was roughly the female equivalent to the term " Hooray Henry ", used to describe brash, upper-class young English public school boys, although this term is not geographically restricted and is used all over the UK.
REAL ESTATE OWNERSHIP AND CHARACTER
During the 1990s,
The northern half of the street is near
Knightsbridge and is home to
a few smart, more modern residential blocks, all with 24-hour
Cadogan Hotel and Millennium Hotel .
The southern half of the street has much more individual character, with a number of typical Pont Street Dutch style red brick buildings, built in the 19th century by Earl Cadogan , which house elegant apartments. In the most exclusive residential area of the street, which is between Sloane Square and Cadogan Place, some of the residences have remained as whole houses. Properties in this area have sold in early 2007 for in excess of £2,500 per square foot on long leases.
Notable buildings include Holy Trinity Sloane Street by the Victorian architect J.D. Sedding , the Danish Embassy designed by Arne Jacobsen (shared with the Embassy of Iceland ) and the Embassy of Peru .
