L&Q’s PRS homes development overlooking the US Embassy


ith sweeping views across the new US Embassy in west London, L&Q @ The Residence feels more midtown New York than Nine Elms.

Reminiscent of the famous Chrysler Building in the art

deco-inspired design, stylised arches adorn the exposed brickwork facade of L&Q’s newest private rental sector development, just minutes from the River Thames. Located within central London’s largest regeneration zone Nine

Elms, the project comprises 114 one, two and three bedroom apartments, each with its own balcony or terrace. It will form part of the housing association’s ambition to deliver 25,000 PRS homes over the long term. Tenants will enjoy access to a residents-only roof garden, with

amazing views across the River Thames and US Embassy. Membership to a gym, located on site, will also be included within the residents’ monthly rental payments. Each home is equipped with integrated kitchen appliances and

laminate wood flooring along the hallway and throughout the living and dining rooms. With all bedrooms carpeted and featuring pendant lighting, the master suite also enjoys built-in wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom. Erdal Kacar, operations manager for PRS comments: “We are

thrilled to be launching a large number of new homes for private rent within one of the country’s most exciting regeneration areas.” Once a collection of warehouses and industrial buildings, more than 20,000 new homes are currently being built within the riverside location, with substantial office and commercial space set to transform the Nine Elms area.

s featured on the front cover of this issue of Housebuilder and Developer, new homes are being released at London City Island, a development on the Leamouth Peninsula by

Malaysian/UK joint venture Ecoworld Ballymore. A total of 37 new units will form part of the 1,700 homes on the

12-acre site. The properties benefit from alfresco spaces and a central location, with views of The O2, Canary Wharf and the City. A 260 ft red footbridge spans the River Lea, an important link

that will allow residents to reach Bond Street in 20 minutes via the Jubilee Line and DLR at Canning Town.

The London Film School, the English National Ballet and the

English National Ballet School have already been announced as future residents of the island, with Ecoworld Ballymore hoping the site will become a ‘hub’ for the arts. John Mulryan, managing director of Ballymore Group,

commented: “We are delighted to announce the release of new residential units at London City Island. “Having welcomed a vibrant mix of residents and new tenants,

we are confident in the development’s position as a place to invest and call home.”
