Barratt London launches Nine Elms Point, part of 'the most important regeneration story in London over the next 20 years'
Barratt London has launched its latest development in Zone 1 of the city with a reception at CBRE’s offices in the West End last night.
Nine Elms Point is the developer’s contribution to the vast Nine Elms regeneration scheme, dubbed by the Mayor of London as “possibly the most important regeneration story in London and in the UK over the next 20 years”.
Nine Elms Point gives buyers the opportunity to snap up a new home in an area of London set to benefit from significant improvements to its community, transport infrastructure and local amenities. The stylish homes are competitively priced for a Zone 1 location, and also comparatively to nearby schemes, making Nine Elms Point a fantastic proposition for owner-occupiers and investors alike.
The development is made up of 645 homes with a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses all scheduled for completion in 2019.
A new flagship Sainsbury’s will form part of the development, which will not only provide convenient grocery shopping for local residents but also create 300 new jobs in the area.
Regional Sales Director for Barratt London, Gary Patrick, said: “The Nine Elms neighbourhood has been earmarked by the Mayor of London as one of London’s most important regeneration programmes. Our aim is to deliver homes that are attractively priced for the local area and we’re confident that they will appeal to a whole range of buyers looking for high quality apartments within a stone’s throw of central London.”
Located on Wandsworth Road in Lambeth SW8, Nine Elms Point sits adjacent to the planned Nine Elms underground station - part of the £1.5bn northern line extension due for completion in 2019. It’s also a 5-minute walk from Vauxhall underground, bus and rail station offering rapid access to Oxford Circus via the Victoria line in around 7 minutes.
Nine Elms Point has been awarded “Built for Life” status, a Government endorsed commendation for the best new homes. Each apartment has been designed with generously sized rooms and flexible open-plan living spaces to adapt to the varying demands of contemporary lifestyles, with large windows that create an airy environment and allow for an influx of natural sunlight. Most of the apartments also benefit from a generously sized terrace or balcony.
Interiors incorporate modern comforts, such as underfloor heating and energy efficient recessed downlighting. Kitchens come fully-equipped with high-end, integral appliances, including wine coolers cabinets, and feature silestone worktops with complementary glass splashbacks. Bathrooms are fitted with Roca bathroom suites and stainless steel Grohe fittings offset by mirrored walnut vanity units.
The concept architect for Nine Elms Point was Rolfe Judd, with detailed planning completed by Broadway Malyan. Nine Elms Point is made up of seven towers set around vast, elevated, landscaped gardens and courtyards with a striking water feature for residents. The metallic cladding is inspired by the original foundry on the site.
Residents will enjoy the usual Barratt London communal facilities such as 24-hour concierge, a business centre, private fitness suite and a private dining room for hire.
The highest tower at Nine Elms Point is 37-storeys in total, making it the tallest residence in the Barratt London portfolio to date.
Prices at the launch event started at £447,000 for a studio apartment.
