Details of property development of new apartments on City Road, Islington, has been announced by Berkeley Homes North East London. The new-builds have been designed by one of London’s top architects Foster + Partners and along with the homes will include cafés, restaurants and shops
The new apartments on City Road in Islington are located right in the middle of the vibrant north London neighbourhood, surrounded by bars and cafes and not far from the City. Upon completion, the scheme will comprise 930 homes, a 190-room four-star hotel, as well as office and retail space.
Overlooking the City skyline, the development incorporates almost two acres of landscaped gardens and courtyards, all of which are fully WiFi enabled. The one, two and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses are arranged across eight buildings, including two landmark towers reaching up to 42 floors.
All apartments are fully-fitted with Siemens integrated appliances, underfloor heating, comfort cooling and luxurious bathrooms, balconies, terraces and/or winter gardens.
Berkeley Homes are working with a panel of interior designers, who include Darling Associates, Scott Brownrigg and Goddard Littlefair, to create the apartments, and they have been developed strategically to fill the interior living space with natural light throughout the day.
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, plus secure underground parking and round-the-clock security.
Outside almost two acres of green space is punctuated with trees, water features and wildflower beds. In addition, buyers will enjoy a private, residents-only courtyard.
Mew cafes, restaurants, shops, 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.
Prices at 250 City Road start from £595,000 for a studio apartment.
