New Luxury Apartments (Complete with Gin Garden) Go on Sale

By |Published On: 24th September 2015|

This article is an external press release originally published on the Landlord News website, which has now been migrated to the Just Landlords blog.

The latest luxury apartment block in London is set to go on sale today (Thursday 24th September). Residents will enjoy its gardens, set 55 storeys up, and the highest botanical gin garden in the capital.

Developers Ballymore and EcoWorld, who created the sky pool plans at Battersea’s Nine Elms (/sky-pool-suspended-over-nine-elms/), will start selling the Wardian development in Canary Wharf today.

Alongside the typical concierge, private gym and cinema, the luxury block will also feature a sky garden, one of which measures 37.2 square metres.

The 624 apartments will be spread across two new towers, named after the Wardian case – a sealable glass container for growing or exporting plants.

The towers will feature heavy foliage, from sunken gardens outside the lobby to exotic plants in the rooftop bar.

The 25-metre open-air swimming pool will be “set within a flourishing tropical environment”1.

Both towers, one of 50 storeys and the other of 55, were approved by Tower Hamlets Council last year and are due to be completed in 2019.

Prices start at £395,000 for a studio flat and £525,000 for a one-bedroom apartment. The penthouses are priced from £2m.

The area is popular with foreign investors and, although the homes will not be on sale abroad until next weekend, marketing has already begun in Kuala Lumpur.

Huw Morgan, of Camlins, the landscape architect that worked on the project, explains the concept: “Green space is one of the most sought-after commodities in London, and Wardian London capitalises on this with abundant planting of more than a hundred different exotic species of plants and flowers across the development.”1
