Shoreditch Exchange: An upscale development for trendy young professionals
Offering stylish urban living and unparalleled convenience, Shoreditch Exchange is an upscale development ideal for young professionals working in Central and East London.
With just a 10 percent deposit on one of London’s newest property developments, you could become a landlord of someone who works at Google or Facebook.
As an emerging creative hub, Shoreditch is known for its thriving arts and culture. Sitting close to the city’s established commercial and technology districts, its prime location makes it one of London’s most sought-after international property investment hotspots.
Shoreditch is also a highly desirable neighbourhood for young professionals working in the capital’s business and technology hubs. Its proximity to downtown London as well as its hip and artistic vibe – without the rigidity of the Central Business District – make it a fashionable address to have.
In May, leading UK developer Regal Homes joined hands with JLL, one of five major global real estate service providers, to launch Shoreditch Exchange, an upmarket residential project in London.
The property is highly accessible via the London Underground and Overground, and is only a short distance from landmarks including the London Eye and Big Ben, as well as attractions and shopping areas in Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street.
Shoreditch Exchange is a mere three-minute walk from Hoxton Rail Station, while 10 minutes on foot will take you to a variety of attractions including Columbia Flower Market, Haggerston Park and Regent’s Canal. You can also walk to Tech City in 15 minutes.
Just a stone’s throw away is the Old Street Underground Station, which offers easy access to a number of prestigious educational establishments:
- - Central Saint Martins (5 minutes).
- - London School of Economics and King’s College London (13 minutes).
- - London Business School (21 minutes).
- - Imperial College London (23 minutes).
Conveniently, the perfect work-life balance is only a short stroll away. Regent’s Canal, surrounding park areas, green spaces and recreational areas are all within walking distance.
Along with New York’s Brooklyn, Berlin’s Mitte and Paris’ La Marais, Shoreditch is considered the home of one of the world’s four most creative street communities. It is also one of London’s most important arts and cultural areas. In fact, as early as 500 years ago, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was believed to have been first performed in a theatre in Shoreditch (the second-oldest theatre in London).
Vibrant art galleries, museums, bars, restaurants and independent shops can be found everywhere in Shoreditch.
Here on the streets of Shoreditch, you can also find the avant-garde art of Ben Eine, one of the UK’s top five street artists. Former British Prime Minister David Cameron once bought his artwork as a gift to Barack Obama, the former US president.
Old Spitalfields Market – one of the oldest and most popular markets in London – is another short walk from Shoreditch. With so much to see and do, it is easy to immerse and relax in the inspiring and artistic atmosphere of the district.
For those who work in the commercial districts and technology hubs of London, this is also the perfect location for a home. One of the most valuable locations in London, Shoreditch has a very limited supply of new-build homes, with only two property developments for sale in the area. However, compared to the other development, residential units at Shoreditch Exchange are priced at £400 per square metre lower.
Shoreditch Exchange is a mere 15-minute walk from the offices of Google, Twitter, Facebook and Amazon, while also being adjacent to older business districts.
Aside from its apartments, Shoreditch Exchange also features four blocks of offices, upmarket restaurants, cafes, bars, independent shops as well as other amenities, making this an upscale neighbourhood that offers its residents a vibrant lifestyle.
All its apartments come with private courtyards, and its full range of facilities include a clubhouse, gym, cinema and 24-hour concierge service.
The development also boasts a luxurious garden landscape and a spacious rooftop terrace with an unrivalled view of London, adding to its lifestyle appeal.
Shoreditch Exchange has been designed by AHMM, who was a recipient of the RIBA Stirling Prize, the UK’s top architecture award.
Built to the highest standards, the interiors feature home appliances from the best brands to offer unmatched luxury and aesthetics. The kitchens come with Siemens appliances and stone worktops, giving the space a contemporary yet timeless look. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are a modern and chic white.
All the apartments comprise an open-style living room and an open kitchen, and have direct access to the private outdoor space. Focused on blending innovation with seamless design, the property also has a gated main entrance and CCTV monitoring in communal areas, giving its residents a safe and secure living environment.
Prices start from £686,000 (HK$6.9 million) for the 999-year leasehold apartments, and only a 10 percent deposit is required. This project has immense potential for returns, as this is only the first phase of its development.
