Meet the New Central London District of Victoria
The once-drab district in London’s CBD is getting a faceflit — and the rewards are proving big for property owners.
A massive £2.2 billion, 2.2 million sq ft redevelopment of Victoria Street, SW1, which started little over 10 years ago by the United Kingdom’s largest commercial property developer Land Securities, soon looks set to bring new life to the once-lacklustre though historic location. Once Victoria’s metamorphosis is over, a vibrant district looks set to emerge as one of central London’s most enviable places to live and work in by the end of 2016.
One of Land Securities’ notable projects on Victoria Street is the recently completed Kings Gate luxury residential development with 100 state-of-the-art apartments… Helmed by Millier Design, the Kings Gate apartments’ interiors exude quiet luxury: polished limestone flooring, solid timbre front doors, rich oak flooring as well as natural materials and finishes in a neutral, earthy palette. Facilities include secure underground parking, a 24-hour concierge service and private balconies or terraces for most of the apartments.
