3 March 2016, Singapore – Knight Frank Singapore today unveils its upcoming launch of the latest UK development, Caledonian Road. Set for completion in Q3 to Q4 2018, the stylish new landmark is ideally positioned between the exclusive district of Islington and the multibillion-pound King’s Cross regeneration zone, Caledonian Road is one of London’s most exciting new residential developments.
The scheme comprises a selection of outstanding 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, built in a series of traditional, pastel-hued buildings, positioned around an attractive courtyard. Retail and commercial space, as well as a leafy podium garden and a residents-only community centre will help create a lively new neighbourhood for this part of Zone 2 London. Situated in an area rich in history, the development overlooks the green open spaces of Caledonian Park and its striking Grade II listed clock tower, as well as Market Road Gardens, a renowned conservation area.
Each of the lateral apartments offer secure, contemporary space, with a bespoke design and high quality fixtures and fittings, including Miele appliances and underfloor heating throughout. Open plan layouts and large windows provide a light and airy living space, whilst balconies and terraces offer the perfect setting for outdoor entertaining.
Residents can benefit from access to exclusive private fitness facilities, with a fully-equipped gymnasium, as well as a 24-hour concierge service, ensuring that every need is catered for at all times.
Caledonian Road occupies an unrivalled location on the borders of King’s Cross, one of London’s most impressive regeneration projects. The major mixed-use redevelopment will see 67 acres transformed to combine new homes, extensive retail and leisure facilities, exceptional transport links, restaurants, bars, schools, a university and over 20 acres of public realm; re-establishing the area as one of the most vibrant quarters in London.
In addition, Caledonian Road is just a short walk from Islington, one of London’s oldest and most established addresses, offering exceptional entertainment venues, galleries, restaurants, bars and boutiques, as well as a renowned high street. According the Knight Frank research, property in Islington has benefited from 7.7% price growth over the past 12 months, making it the best performing borough in Prime Central London.
Just a few minutes’ walk from the development, Caledonian Road station offers both underground and overground transport services, connecting to the City (Bank, 13 minutes), and the world-class shopping and theatre heartland of the West End (Leicester Square, 10 minutes). National and international rail links are available from nearby King’s Cross St Pancras (3 minutes), whilst nearby Victoria (16 minutes) provides frequent services to Gatwick Airport.
The scheme’s central location and outstanding transport links provide access to a network of internationally-acclaimed schools and universities, including King’s College London, London School of Economics (LSE), University College London and Imperial College London, all of which are less than
30 minutes’ from Caledonian Road by underground.
Linda Chern, Director, International Project Marketing, Knight Frank Singapore, says, “With Kings Cross expected to remain a major focus of redevelopment, the area will see considerable transformation. This project has great potential and offers an exciting opportunity for investors. Based on our 2016 Wealth Report Attitude Survey — which surveyed the views of around 400 private bankers and wealth advisors who between them manage assets for about 45,000 ultra-high-net-worth- individuals (UHNWI) — the UK is still the top destination for residential property investment for most
Asian UHNWIs.”
