One of London's most central and significant regeneration projects, the £15 billion Nine Elms and Battersea development has transformed the UK capital's last major industrial estate into prime Zone 1 real estate. Planned to complete in 2025, the regeneration of Nine Elms will add around 20,000 new homes, offering overseas property investors the rare opportunity to purchase Central London property at lower prices than more established areas.
This mixed-use district will also feature 3.2 million square feet of new office space and 6.5 million square feet of retail, dining and leisure space, much of this in the refurbished Battersea Power Station that will soon be a new home for Apple and other prestigious global brands. New transport infrastructure will serve the district and connect it to the wider city, including a footbridge across the River Thames and two new stations extending the London Underground Northern Line.
Lexington Gardens at Nine Elms is the flagship residential development serving the new community, comprising three distinctive buildings in landscaped grounds amid the buzz of the international quarter. Lexington Gardens is a short walk from the new Nine Elms Underground station for journeys across London and convenient international connections.
International prestige with local flavor
The establishment of the new US Embassy and Apple's 500,000-square-foot campus at Battersea were early endorsements for this up-and-coming district, and other forward-thinking businesses have taken note. More than 70 percent of commercial space in the Power Station has already been leased ahead of the 2021 opening of the iconic London landmark, which will be home to more than 100 brands across technology, retail, food, leisure and other diverse industries.
As well as the boutiques and markets at Battersea's Circus West, the upscale department stores and Michelin-starred restaurants of Knightsbridge and Chelsea can be found directly across the river. The South Bank itself is one of London's leading culture hubs for sophisticated nights out, while other destinations such as the West End will be in easy reach once services begin from the new Underground stations next year.
Services from Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station will take 11 minutes to reach the City of London financial center and less than 50 minutes to London's three busiest airports. Students and families with children will also find a Nine Elms address convenient for accessing London's many prestigious schools and universities, including King's College, Imperial College and University College London.
Exceptional city living
Lexington Gardens at Nine Elms is part of the wider regeneration project, extending the South Bank and incorporating a stretch of the new Linear Park that runs from Battersea to Vauxhall. Green space and walkways connect its three eye-catching residential buildings, designed by RMA Architects to fuse London heritage with New York style.
This sophistication extends to the interiors. The latest phase at Lexington Gardens to launch, offers 126 private one, two and three-bedroom apartments with spacious living areas, a choice of stylish color palettes and full-height windows and a balcony or terrace overlooking the gardens and the River Thames. The luxury lifestyle is supported by a suite of exclusive resident amenities that includes a private gymnasium, media room, roof garden and 24-hour concierge service.
