Barratt London launches new tower
9 May 2012
Inspired by the New York skyline, Barratt London is launching No 1 The Plaza, a new 27-storey residential tower in Bromley-by-Bow, on Saturday 5th May. Comprised of 183 one, two and three-bedroom apartments as well as one bedroom suites, No 1 The Plaza is the penultimate phase of the hugely successful St Andrews development which is formed of a series of striking buildings from three to 27 storeys. Prices start at £198,000 for a one bedroom suite.
Offering a variety of superb living options, many of the apartments at No 1 The Plaza have a balcony or terrace, with breathtaking views over London’s cityscape, looking out onto Olympic Park, Canary Wharf and beyond.
No 1 The Plaza’s location is a major draw, as it is just a short distance to the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the City and it is surrounded by commuter links. The development is situated adjacent to Bromley-by-Bow tube station, giving residents easy access to the District, and Hammersmith and City Lines, which means Liverpool Street is just a short trip away. It is also close to the Devons Road DLR with easy access to Canary Wharf, The Docklands and City Airport.
The area also benefits from proximity to shopping hubs, such as Spitalfields Market, world-class restaurants and local cafes and pubs. The fusion of modernity and cultural variety makes it a sought after location.
Every detail of No 1 The Plaza has been inspired by the Manhattan lifestyle. From its height, to its chic contemporary interior, residents of this exclusive tower will feel as though they have been transported to the Upper East Side, yet will be privy to unmatched views across Europe’s most exciting capital.
The interiors at No 1 The Plaza will all have a sleek modern design. The designer kitchens will come with integrated appliances and stylish contemporary layouts.
The development will also feature retail units including a grocery store, likely to be Sainsburys, with a proposed coffee shop and health clinic, as well as a 24 hour concierge service and a private residents’ 2500 sqft gymnasium.
Bromley-by-Bow is undergoing a process of huge regeneration, benefitting from both the large financial investment in London’s East End, as well as the cultural reinvigoration of the capital’s east – an area now considered the hub of the city’s cultural activities. A short distance from the curry-houses of Brick Lane and the bohemian hot-spots of Shoreditch and Dalston, Bromley-by-Bow is generating immense residential interest for those searching the perfect locale from which to explore the whole city.
Once the Olympics have finished, residents of No 1 The Plaza will have the privilege of having the 500 acre Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on their doorstep, offering unrivalled access to what will most certainly become a focal point in sporting history. Additionally, the world-renowned Stratford Westfield Shopping Centre provides locals with an incomparable variety of shops and restaurants, offering answers to any want or desire.
Gary Patrick, regional sales director of Barratt London comments: “The launch of The Plaza marks an exciting point in the history of the Bromley-by-Bow area. With brand-new, contemporary accommodation now available in the district’s centre, the development is contributing to the ongoing regeneration of the East End. With the Olympic Park almost at completion and the Games set to be under way within a matter of months, there has never been a more exciting time to invest in the area.”
“The Plaza offers a rare opportunity for those searching for a property within commutable distance from the City, yet who still want to be part of the East End’s vibrant lifestyle.”
