Just entering the luxury end of the property market is the 12-storey Cityscape tower block at Whitechapel in London’s East End—but most of it is already sold and won’t be ready to move in for another two years anyway.
Contractors are still working on the Telford development, the latest upmarket housing scheme to appear in the City Fringe corridor, completed by 2015.
It is being pushed as “the new Mecca for professionals” looking to buy or rent within walking distance of Aldgate, The Tower of London, Spitalfields Market, Petticoat Lane, the bars and restaurants along Brick Lane’s ‘curry mile’ and galleries such as The Whitechapel, The Hoxton, White Cube and Electric Blue.
The complex has 128 apartments including penthouses, suites and flats with one, two and three bedrooms. Prices start from £315,000 for a studio apartment—but there are none of these left. Only three-bed flats remain, starting at £700,000.
It includes a residents’ gym, concierge service and rooftop terrace overlooking the London skyline. Each apartment has under-floor heating, security system with CCTV and video entry phone, balcony or terrace and access to a landscaped private courtyard garden.
The development also includes a £4m external refurbishment of Denning Point on the corner of Wentworth Street, for East End Homes, providing 68 new low-cost and 13 shared-ownership homes.
