With a £1.5billion regeneration project underway, the once overlooked Bedfordshire town of Luton is being reinvented into a buzzing property hotspot. Several new residential schemes are now coming up in Luton with the latest being LU2ON by Strawberry Star Homes.
House prices are still 60 per cent less than London itself while the rental market is expanding in London. For savvy first-time buyers, commuters, home-movers, buy-to-let investors and property investors, it is the right time to buy a residential property in Luton. LU2ON, which offers London lifestyle, is set in the heart of the town’s regeneration zone.
LU2ON is located on a site where Vauxhall Motors assembled some of Britain’s most iconic and best-loved cars in the past. LU2ON will provide over 785 bespoke suites, one and two-bedroom apartments and first-class facilities such as private roof gardens and 24-hour concierge. Spread over 6.8 acres, commercial space is also being provided at the development with a large public realm, gardens, a gym, boutique shops, restaurants and bars, as well as a star hotel. Provisions are made to include a supermarket, childcare and a pharmacy in the development.
Under the Phase 1, LU2ON will provide 400 high-quality apartments, due for completion in 2021. Designed to provide a contemporary feel, the specifications include video entry phone system; floor to ceiling windows; sound proofed triple glazing throughout and mechanical air ventilation system to name a few. Integrated appliances add quality and style to the interior finish of the kitchen units.
The architects & interior designers for LU2ON are the renowned Flanagan Lawrence & Stuart Forbes Associates, who are jointly working as a team for this development. Gillespies are the landscape architects for the development.
The development is located a short walk from Luton Airport Parkway Station, which connects to King’s Cross St. Pancras, Central London, in under 23 minutes by train. Luton is also well connected by the newly-launched Thameslink railway, which offers frequent direct train travel to other London terminals and centres including London Bridge, Blackfriars and London Farringdon in less than an hour.
Luton has good motorway connections via the M1 for journeys north towards Milton Keynes, and south towards St Albans and the North Circular. Luton is also home to London Luton Airport, which offers easy international travel to 30+ countries and 70 destinations across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. The town also has beautiful countryside on the doorstep, being surrounded by the Chilterns, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
As one of the UK’s most promising and successful areas of renewal, Luton is a hotbed for entrepreneurs and business start-ups. LU2ON is ideal for those looking for high quality, future proofed homes, that will continue to grow in value as Luton regenerates. With lower deposits, one can secure a home in a development that will meet all lifestyle requirements. The apartment prices start from £185,000.
