West Grove, London SE17
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
24 February 2015 – Lend Lease Corporation, an international property and infrastructure group, has unveiled the second phase of their Elephant Park residential project, known as West Grove, located in the heart of London. West Grove is a central part of the 3,000 community of homes being delivered by Lend Lease in Elephant & Castle.
Lend Lease has announced this project is now pre-selling. For more information interested parties are welcome to contact Colliers International.
Designed by award-winning architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris and Panter Hudspith Architects, West Grove comprises 593 suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments located across eight buildings. The architecture offers a mix of mid-rise mansion buildings and towers that vary from five to 31 storeys, and includes ‘The Highwood’ which is the tallest planned tower for the whole of Elephant Park. Each apartment offers a private terrace or balcony and access to a range of amenities including a 24-hour concierge service, gym facilities, function rooms, and a lobby area which provides a welcoming ‘third space’ to work, socialise and relax.
Prices start at £415,000 for a one-bedroom suite apartment.
The apartments look out over two residents’ courtyards offering a distinctive woodland or orchard landscape, as well as ample play areas, relaxed seating and richly varied planting designed by landscape architects Gillespies.
Elephant Park’s Zone 1 location makes it one of the best-connected places in Central London. In addition to two tube lines (Bakerloo and Northern), it also benefits from proximity to a mainline train station and 28 bus routes. It is a short journey to many London universities, a six minute tube journey to the City, 11 minutes to the West End and 16 minutes to Canary Wharf .
Rob Heasman, Lend Lease’s Project Director for Elephant & Castle, said: “Our vision is to create a vibrant Central London neighbourhood, where people from diverse backgrounds love where they live. Every single element of the design of the homes, the communal facilities and the retail offering aims to deliver that.
“The launch of West Grove marks another major step in our delivery of one of the most sought-after and sustainable new places to live with the convenience Central London’s Zone 1. With the significant sales success of the previous phase at Elephant Park, we expect buying interest at West Grove to be equally strong.”
The West Grove apartments will act as a benchmark for sustainable living in the UK, with the homes being 30% more energy-efficient than current regulations require and which use 30% less water than the average London home.
West Grove will also include a vibrant new shopping street that runs throughout Elephant Park, where a range of independent shops will sit alongside cafés and bars. Up to 13 independent shops in West Grove will be delivered in addition to a new foodstore, up to nine high street shops along the Walworth Road and a restaurant facing Walworth Square, a brand new civic square that will be at the heart of the local community.
Lend Lease is working in partnership with Southwark Council to ensure the regeneration at Elephant & Castle continues to gain real momentum as delivery on the project accelerates. Following completion of the demolition of the former Heygate estate, building work has recently commenced on the first 360 homes at Elephant Park. Work is also over halfway complete at One The Elephant, a landmark, 37-storey building consisting of 284 new homes and Trafalgar Place ¬–with 235 homes – is approaching completion with the first residents due to move in this spring.
