The Residence at Nine Elms: Central London apartments with an affordable price tag
Enjoy River Thames views and Zone 1 connections in the heart of Central London's vibrant new neighborhood.
Central London's brand new residential, cultural and business quarter is welcoming its first residents. The extensive regeneration of Nine Elms has transformed this former industrial site into a state-of-the-art destination for life, business and entertainment in the heart of the capital.
Once complete, the Nine Elms regeneration will have created approximately 20,000 new homes, 3.2 million square feet of office space and 2.3 million square feet of retail space, along with a new 30-acre park, community amenities and two new Underground stations connecting this new neighborhood to the city.
As well as its desirable location on the vibrant South Bank of the Thames, Nine Elms offers residents and investors significant house price discounts for prime Zone 1 property, directly across the river from some of the world's most expensive real estate. One new residential development that's already welcoming buyers is The Residence at Nine Elms, a collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments by leading UK developer Bellway.
Discover London's new business and leisure hub
Nestled between Vauxhall and Battersea, Nine Elms is a whole new district that's bringing new life and new shopping, dining and leisure opportunities to the already impressive cultural offerings of the South Bank. The new Nine Elms Park will bring a touch of nature to the district, featuring green spaces, riverside walks and cycle trails connecting to the Thames River Path.
Circus West at Battersea, a newly opened hub of cafes, fresh food markets and celebrity hairdressers, is just moments away from The Residence, and is supplemented by long-standing local institutions such as New Covent Garden Market. London's famous department stores, such as Harrods and Harvey Nichols, and Michelin-starred restaurants are also within easy reach, just across the river.
Nine Elms is also set to become a major center for business in London, with tech giant Apple having already purchased 500,000 square feet of office space to establish its new UK headquarters at the iconic Battersea Power Station. Other global corporations are following suit, attracted by the international prestige of the area which houses the new US Embassy, due for completion in 2018–19.
The proximity of world-class education institutions, such as King's College, Imperial College and University College, as well as an impressive selection of local primary and secondary schools make Nine Elms an appealing choice for families with children of all ages.
Manhattan style in the heart of London
The Residence at Nine Elms features 324 apartments across several buildings. All apartments offer picturesque views over the river or surrounding parks and public spaces, with bespoke furnishings, fully integrated appliances and contemporary design inspired by New York.
Colin Veitch, Director at GRID Architects, explained: “Our vision was to create something uniquely contemporary, outside and in. On the outside, our brick façades have highlights of glazed colored tiles and the brick is like Manhattan's mansion blocks, but with a contemporary feel. Apartments were designed with an exceptional specification, including kitchens with quality appliances and bathrooms with spa-like fittings.”
Residents have exclusive access to luxury facilities including a private gym and yoga room, meeting suite, media lounge and a 24-hour concierge. The new Nine Elms and Battersea Underground stations will be just a few minutes' walk from the door when they open in 2020, for convenient travel all over the city and less than an hour's travel time to the three major London airports. The existing Vauxhall station is just 15 minutes away.
Investors who are interested in this up-and-coming district can now reserve units at Glacier House, one of the blocks to open at The Residence, which is estimated for completion in the second half of 2018.
