NEW HOME SEEKERS SNAP UP ONE STRATFORD
London, 12th October 2009 – Telford Homes is close to completing its landmark development One Stratford with all of the 179 one and two bedroom apartments and two three-bedroom penthouses ready for occupation and many already moved into. There is however still a small selection currently available for sale at today’s very competitive prices. These include a studio apartment, four one bedroom apartments and three two bedroom apartments which all have views towards the Olympic Park and future Stratford City – some are the highest level with truly panoramic outlooks. Launched for sale ‘off-plan’ in 2006, the scheme was extremely popular with buy-to-let investors attracted to the up-and-coming area with its new-found Olympic fame and as a progressive transport hub, making for an exciting investment. The apartments subsequently offered for letting have been snapped up by tenants, eager to move into a high specification new apartment in the heart of the main Olympic zone, especially as many apartments offer panoramic views across the 2012 Olympic Park.
Internally, each apartment features an Urban Myth kitchen with Smeg appliances, Roca b
athroom suite and fine quality neutral fixtures and fittings, while the scheme itself benefits from an onsite car club. Telford Homes’ dedicated customer service team also perform a comprehensive handover to owner-occupiers or tenants upon completion and support all residents and owners throughout the first two years of ownership (the initial warranty period) and longer term. Situated on Stratford High Street, One Stratford overlooks the 2012 Olympic Park with the main stadium in the foreground and many apartments boasting unique panoramic views across the Park or other London landmarks such as Canary Wharf; The Gherkin and Broadgate Tower feature in the skyline to the west.
The transformation of Stratford is more than just the 2012 Olympic Park development and includes the provision of the state-of-the-art Westfield retail park and the formation of the new Stratford City. The new Westfield Centre, which will be part of the new Stratford City hub, will house large brands including a new flagship John Lewis and Marks & Spencer store. Stratford City is also home to the new Eurostar station, making connections by train into Europe even faster. The Javelin shuttle from Kings Cross St. Pancras will go direct to Stratford International during the games.
The regeneration of Stratford is one of the most important urban transformations taking place in Europe with high quality, well-designed residential property playing an important role in providing housing for a new community. As well as delivering the private sale apartments and some small business/retail units, Telford Homes has partnered Toynbee Housing Association to provide shared ownership and rental apartments to ensure this new community is mixed by tenure and sustainable. Sheena Ellwood, Sales & Marketing Director at Telford Homes commented:
“One Stratford is another piece in the jigsaw puzzle of an immense regeneration project. We are proud to have made a very real contribution to Stratford’s future by delivering another successful and sought after scheme in the area. The positive experience of investors and residents at One Stratford so far suggests that this very special area of East London has a bright future, both Olympic and long term.”
