The Liberty Building: Where Style Meets Substance
For many first time buyers, they often have to make a choice between price and location.
The areas surrounding Canary Wharf, with wonderfully elevated river views, excellent transport links and a quality lifestyle on the doorstep naturally command a premium price per square foot, currently averaging £1,320 in luxury new build developments. However, The Liberty Building, a striking 26-storey residential tower by Telford Homes offers all of the benefits of nearby developments, but is up to 25 per cent less expensive at just £985 per square foot, making it the most affordable luxury development in the Canary Wharf area.
It was this competitive pricing alongside the thriving location that led 26 year old Jun Liu, a Quantitative Analyst at a Fintech company in London, to purchase an apartment in Telford Homes’ The Liberty Building in East London.
Jun, who bought the two-bedroom apartment with his girlfriend, chose the development primarily because of the location; crediting it as,
“Close enough to Canary Wharf to feel part of the city’s financial hotspot and have easy access to strong transport links, but far away enough to be more affordable and offer distance from the bustling metropolis when needed”.
In addition, a seamless commute to work via the DLR, and numerous sports facilities in the local area made this location an ideal choice.
The apartment was the perfect choice for enhancing the couple’s day to day lives – from the “amazing first impression” when they walked in down to the outdoor balcony that led them to snap up a home at The Liberty Building. Jun’s girlfriend is a make-up blogger so a south-facing apartment was a priority with a large living room offering lots of light, whilst the spacious kitchen gives Jun enough room to indulge in his love for cooking. The property also features a large balcony overlooking a swathe of greenery as well as amazing views over the city, providing the unusual combination of peace in what is considered a traditionally urban area.
The architecturally impressive Liberty Building, located in Limeharbour, E14, comprises of 36 sleek and contemporary apartments in the final phase, alongside a landscaped piazza with fountains and greenery, residents’ gymnasium and a hospitable 24 hour concierge service. The grounds also feature a sculpture by Alison Russell, created with historic references to the significant part that London’s docklands played in the Capital’s commercial success.
Within the apartments the open plan living and dining areas have been individually designed with a focus on entertaining in style. Echoing the design elements throughout the development, details include large stone kitchen worktops and bespoke cabinetry in the bathrooms. A sleek and stylish combination of high gloss lacquered kitchen cabinets by Urban Myth with integrated Siemens appliances creates a sophisticated and contemporary look.
Space comes at a premium in the capital so the homes at The Liberty Building offer an exceptional opportunity to reside in Zone 2, a few minutes away from Canary Wharf, whilst getting the best value for money in the area. The final two remaining apartments at The Liberty Building are both two bedrooms, priced from £907,500 starting on the 22nd floor of the development.
Limeharbour and the surrounding areas have undergone a renaissance in recent years. The historic cobbled streets and trading past of Limehouse Basin is now home to a picturesque marina and surrounded by fashionable restaurants and bars including Gordon Ramsay’s The Narrow which offers fantastic riverside views from the terrace and The Grapes, a pub co-owned by the acclaimed actor Sir Ian McKellan who also lives in the area.
The Liberty Building offers a quality lifestyle for residents being within walking distance of Canary Wharf Shopping Centre. Spanning over one million square foot of retail and amenity space, it comprises of over 320 shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. The area also incorporates 30 acres of open spaces, parks, squares, piazzas and waterside promenades.
It also offers excellent transport links and is ideally located for easy access to central London and The City. Crossharbour DLR which is one minutes’ walk from the development provides direct links to Bank Station in 15 minutes making it ideal for young professionals and those who live and work in The City.
The final two homes at The Liberty Building are available now and ready to move into from £907,500. For further details please contact Telford Homes on 020 3630 8005 or visit www.telfordhomes.london/liberty-building
