Following the completion of Belvedere Gardens in September 2019, a flurry of sales were secured, with purchasers enthused by the ability to view furnished apartments. Two show apartments, designed by Goddard Littlefair and with impressive views onto the London Eye, River Thames, Houses of Parliament and County Hall, were opened for viewings. In total 20 apartments were sold, with a total Gross Development Value in excess of £75m.
Brian De’ath, Director of Residential Sales at Braeburn Estates said, “We achieved a fantastic off plan sales rate at Southbank Place, with over 420 apartments sold since launching in Q3 2015. However, ahead of opening Belvedere Gardens we reached a stage where we had a growing number of interested parties that wanted to see the finished product before committing to a purchase.”
“Once you walk into the main show apartment and see the view onto the London Eye, it’s hard to imagine a more iconic city view: We had a number of people make an offer on the spot. We’re incredibly fortunate to occupy one of the finest locations in the city, the views are mesmerising, you can just relax and watch the world go by.”
Only 26 apartments remain available at Southbank Place, with prices starting from £1.2m for a one-bedroom apartment in Belvedere Gardens. Superbly designed by GRID Architects and Goddard Littlefair, the apartments face Jubilee Gardens, with floor-to-ceiling windows revealing river views of London’s most recognisable landmarks. Residents benefit from direct access to a dedicated health and fitness facility, which includes steam and sauna rooms, full-service gymnasium, treatment rooms, wet room and relaxation room.
Only a few top-floor apartments remain at One and Thirty Casson Square, a pair of Squire & Partners-designed towers, which feature striking stone façades, crafted with bespoke bronze details. The interiors have been shaped by award-winning design house Johnson Naylor, with an emphasis on natural light and maximising views onto the City, the Shard and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Developed by Braeburn Estates, a joint venture between Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group, Southbank Place is situated in a prime position surrounding the Shell Centre building. Altogether, the full development comprises five residential and two commercial buildings, includes a direct entrance to London Waterloo Underground, as well as landscaped public squares.
Occupying the basement of the development, a 17,000 sq. ft. private health facility will cater for the residents of Southbank Place. Also designed by Goddard Littlefair, the space includes a 25 metre swimming pool, his and hers steam and sauna rooms, expansive gymnasium with specialist workout rooms, relaxation pods and a hair and beauty studio.
