The £12.5 billion Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, East London, is the largest regeneration quarter in the UK and is the proud centrepiece of London’s recent Olympic legacy. With over 16,400 new homes, 600 hotel rooms and a casino, it also includes the new location of West Ham Football Club in the former Olympic Stadium, plus there’s a new business district, parks, leisure facilities and water features. A most welcome addition is Galliard’s Capital Towers, on High Street Stratford, at the southern boundary of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Providing 191 apartments and penthouses within two residential towers (14 and 34 storeys high) the development overlooks the River Lea, and offers luxury features such as concierge, gymnasium, parking, riverside promenade and landscaped gardens. As a residential destination and a wise investment, Capital Towers offers excellent potential, especially since the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has the backing of the Mayor of London’s office, which projects that the area will have around 9.3 million visitors by 2016. In addition, it will further benefit from the introduction of Crossrail services in 2018 - and it’s predicted that real estate within the regeneration quarter will be enhanced by significant capital value uplift over the next five years.
Capital Towers comprises two striking glass and steel residential towers, linked by a podium up to level four. The podium contains a stylish entrance foyer, concierge service, high-speed lifts, gymnasium and parking facilities – and at level 4, the roof of the podium provides a landscaped residents-only roof garden, two residents’ lounges, and fitness studios. The first tower, City West, rises to 14 storeys, and contains 44 apartments, with all being sold off plan prior to the official UK launch last year. The second tower, Sky View, forms the landmark of the development and rises to 34 storeys. It contains 147 two and three-bedroom apartments with winter gardens, and duplex penthouse apartments with winter gardens and private roof terraces. The Sky View tower also benefits from a skytop roof terrace, offering panoramic views of Canary Wharf and the surrounding Stratford cityscape.
The recent UK launch of Capital Towers saw the release for sale of 80 apartments and penthouses in the Sky View tower, with site construction continuing up to 2016 when the first occupations are scheduled, and the development will be complete. Each apartment at Capital Towers has been designed to provide stylish living areas that benefit from maximum natural light and space, as well as having wonderful views over the surrounding cityscape. All apartments feature a reception room with oak wood veneer flooring and floor-to-ceiling glazing, opening onto a winter garden -a glazed conservatory-style space whose windows can slide away to enable natural light and air to circulate. The fully fitted designer kitchens have oak strip flooring, high-gloss units, glass splashbacks, natural stone worktops and a comprehensive range of integrated appliances.
The sumptuous apartments in the Sky View tower have master bedroom suites with deep-woven oatmeal carpets, fully fitted bespoke wardrobes, mood downlighters and en suite bathrooms with large-format floor and wall tiling, plus natural stone vanity tops, heated towel rails, fitted mirrors and mirrored cabinets. The three-bedroom penthouses have large private terraces which are extensive enough to provide reception/entertaining and dining space, with conservatory-style glazing allowing the terraces to be used throughout the year.
David Galman, Sales Director at Galliard Homes comments: “Capital Towers is a perfect off-plan purchase opportunity for investors or end users wanting to buy early into this project, so as to benefit from the regeneration of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park district, which is being designed as a new central business district for the Eastern side of London. As the new offices, business park, leisure and retail facilities come on-stream the Park will further benefit the new residential homes within the district.” Prices at Capital Towers start from £320,995 for a two-bedroom bedroom apartment.
