Oslo Tower, the latest phase at Barratt London's popular Greenland Place development, launches offering fabulous views across the London skyline
Oslo Tower is the latest phase to launch at Barratt London’s Greenland Place development in Surrey Quays, Zone 2, London. Greenland Place is a short walk from the River Thames and the historic Greenland docks: a vibrant neighbourhood currently undergoing a major regeneration, that will further benefit from the new Crossrail station opening at Canary Wharf in 2019.
Oslo Tower rises to 19 storeys and is made up of one and two-bedroom contemporary apartments with private balconies or terraces offering breathtaking views across the London skyline. Each home at Oslo Tower has been designed with a stylish open-plan living area with floor to ceiling windows, providing plenty of natural light. The contemporary kitchens are equipped with integrated appliances and all bathrooms and en-suites have premium fixtures and fittings. Residents will enjoy all the luxuries that come with new development living, including landscaped courtyards with water features, a residents’ fitness suite and the convenience of a 24-hour concierge service.
For day-to-day amenities Surrey Quays Shopping Centre is nearby. Greenland Dock, the oldest of London’s riverside wet docks, is a five minutes’ walk away and offers a range of recreation and leisure facilities at the Surrey Quays Watersports Centre where locals can enjoy sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and even Chinese Dragon Boat racing. Also nearby is Rotherhithe, home to the Brunel museum; while the green spaces and attractions of neighbouring Royal Borough of Greenwich hold the promise of countless rewarding day trips.
The area is popular with professionals looking to live within close proximity to the global financial districts of Canary Wharf and the City of London. Greenland Place is a short walk from Surrey Quays overground station, providing public transport in just one minute to Canada Water, six minutes to London Bridge, seven minutes to Canary Wharf and 13 minutes to Bank. Residents can also hop on a ferry at Greenland Pier and be at the Canary Wharf Pier in 15 minutes for boat links to the O2 - Europe’s largest arena - and beyond. The nearest cycle route, part of the Lewisham Cycle Network, runs along the bank of the River Thames via Deptford Wharf and Deptford Strand. Evelyn Street has been identified as part of the London Mayor’s planned Cycle Superhighway.
Greenland Place is also receiving interest from students and their parents, as Goldsmiths University of London is just four minutes journey time on the Surrey Quays overground, and the University of Greenwich is only 15 minutes away. King’s College London will be introducing a new campus due to complete in 2016/2017 on the former site of Mulberry Business Park: only18 minutes walk from Greenland Place.
Barratt London’s Greenland Place is an eight and a half acre development made up of 679 homes. Respected London design firm RMA Architects, which specialises in the design and regeneration of waterside developments, has designed the scheme as a series of perimeter blocks, mews, courtyards and squares, creating an attractive new residential neighbourhood. The development includes 6,500 square metres of commercial space - including a new business centre - which could offer some residents the convenience of working adjacent to their own home.
First completions at Oslo Tower are expected from winter 2015 with the entire development scheduled to complete in July 2018.
