Are you planning to buy a home in Wandsworth, a historic London borough on the south bank of The Thames? Hold your breath! Property company Strawberry Star Group is unveiling its major residential development scheme – BRONZE – on September 20!
Wandsworth SW18 is one of the most promising areas for regeneration in London with leading developers and housing associations venturing into the location with residential schemes to improve housing. The area offers a lifestyle desired by a majority of Londoners with access to the city centre because of the reliable transport network.
BRONZE offers 77 apartments, including one-bed (26), two-bed (44), three-bed (1), studio (1) and penthouse (5) with prices ranging from £ 425k to 1.5m. The commercial space available at the development is 25,000 sqft, and it is handed over to the vendor Workspace. The estimated completion date of the scheme is Q2/Q3 2019.
The name fits with the theme of the lighting/lamp industrial heritage, but with a modern, more abstract appeal. The design of the residential building is driven by a prevailing industrial language. It brings a simple composition, three clean rectangles that have been extruded to form a block each arranged in sizes that are complementary and are oriented to maximise views of King George’s Park.
The apartments in BRONZE have unique specifications covering communal, electrical and mechanical, kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. Centralised heating system, individually metered to each apartment and zoned underfloor heating are some of the standard features. Most of the apartments have private balconies while penthouses have comfort cooling. Kitchens have top of the line Siemens equipment and the bathrooms is fitted with the best of the fixtures and lightings, all aimed at enhancing the living experience.
Many areas of London have gone through a period of regeneration, but none have done this as well as Wandsworth. Investment has been poured in to improve its existing areas, and to approve plans that will bring the whole area back to life. The completion of our apartments will be the final part of this regeneration jigsaw. And it’s this and every other piece of development work that’s been completed here that will make Wandsworth a once more desirable place to live.
According to Savills, the borough of Wandsworth contains the highest proportion of green space of any London borough, with 1,700 acres consisting of parks, commons, allotments and cemeteries. The area is home to two of the most popular green spaces in London, Clapham Common and Battersea Park, along with Wandsworth Common, Wandsworth Park, and Tooting Common to name a few. Waitrose established its presence in the area with research showing that two-thirds of the population are in the ABC1 socio-economic group.
