250 City Road: Luxury apartments by architects Foster + Partners
250 City Road is a brand new landmark development on City Road, London by property developer Berkeley Homes NEL.
On completion, the development will deliver 930 luxury apartments arranged over eight buildings designed by architects Foster + Partners, and will include two landmark towers.
The luxury scheme will provide two acres of new landscaped courtyards and gardens, all of which will be Wi-Fi enabled, creating a place for local residents and employees to work outside – reflecting the development’s proximity to Tech City.
The first phase of 263 apartments features the tallest building on the development, a 42-storey tower, plus the delivery of the 190-bed four-star luxury hotel.
A second, 36-storey tower will follow in a later phase. Rising above its surroundings in an iconic cluster, the podium towers are each located at an angle to optimise far reaching panoramas across the city and out to London’s periphery, with views becoming more dramatic the further up you go.
Residents will have access to a rooftop gym and terrace, linked with the residents lounge and offering views across the capital. A 20m indoor pool and spa and 24-hr concierge services, complete the offering. The development benefits from secure underground parking and round-the-clock security.
Externally, outside space assumes a new dimension at 250 City Road. Extending to almost two acres of peaceful and enclosed green spaces, punctuated with mature trees, water features and wildflower beds, the public realm provides respite from the confines and pressures of city life. In addition, buyers will enjoy a private, residents-only courtyard which emulates a shady woodland copse.
An expansive retail offering, new cafes, restaurants, shops, Grade A office and studio space – allocated for start-up companies surrounding a new central plaza, will help cement 250 City Road’s arrival as a principal new quarter in this rejuvenated part of town.
Piers Clanford, managing director at Berkeley Homes (North East London) Ltd, said: “250 City Road will form the centerpiece of this vibrant area, virtually unrivalled in terms of proximity to the capital’s most dynamic employment hubs and creative districts – and with the bonus of being located in one of the capital’s most established residential postcodes and a short distance from popular neighbourhoods including Hoxton and Shoreditch.”
Prices at 250 City Road start from £595,000 for a studio apartment. For further information and prices, visit 250cityroad.co.uk.
