News Release


Manhattan Plaza, a new collection of apartments and townhouses in Poplar, E14

HONG KONG, 15 April 2015 - Manhattan Plaza, E14, is the latest exciting development by Telford Homes  to  launch  opposite  the Canary Wharf Towers and the new Crossrail station. Rising to 21storeys, the luxury development comprises 120 private apartments and townhouses, including one, two and three-­bedroom apartments and penthouses, along with six superb townhouses. One of the primary selling points of this development will be the fantastic views from the majority of homes, including the River Thames, Canary Wharf and The City.

Canary Wharf has undergone a radical transformation over the past 25 years to become one of the world's great financial districts with some of the finest residential, retail and leisure opportunities in the Capital. Manhattan Plaza is under a 10 minute walk* from this leading luxury quarter, offering the epitome of urbane and urban living. Fortunate residents will have access to a range of high-­‐end retailers with designer labels such as Thomas Pink, Tiffany & Co, Hackett and Aquascutum. As a result of the area's financial prosperity, there are now a variety of premium restaurants and bars such as Boisdale's oyster, whisky and cigar bars, Plateau Restaurant Bar & Grill, the Four Seasons Hotel's Quadrato Restaurant and contemporary Japanese restaurant Roka.

The area is already popular with professionals and students alike, as it is an easy commute to first-­‐rate schools and universities as well as investors who are aware of the demand for residential properties in this part of London.

Designed by Barton Willmore architects, Manhattan Plaza takes its inspiration from the iconic buildings of New York's trendy Meatpacking District as well as its London surroundings where the old London market tradition of Billingsgate meets the world financial markets of Canary Wharf.

Each apartment comes with a contemporary kitchen by Urban Myth, boasting sleek stainless steel appliances, stone worktops and handle-­‐less fitted units. Bathrooms are equipped with contemporary ceramic tiling, baths with overhead rain showers, fitted cabinetry with chrome fixtures, as well as spacious walk-­‐in shower enclosures to shower rooms. All apartments have video entry phone systems as well as underfloor heating in all rooms and a combination of timber and carpeted flooring throughout, providing residents with the best in peace, comfort and luxury. The Penthouse specification goes to another level still, with height of luxury features such as comfort cooling included.

David Campbell, Group Sales and Marketing Director at  Telford  Homes,  comments:  "Telford  Homes relish the task of building first class apartments to meet the demands of even the most discerning purchasers, with a superb specification matched by development facilities such as a concierge service, private  residents'  gymnasium  and  roof-­‐top  gardens  with  superb  views.  Surrounded by an enviable assortment of high-­‐end retailers, restaurants and bars all within a short walk, the development is perfectly positioned to mix business with pleasure. With average rental yields of around 4.5% and the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, we believe that the development offers a fantastic investment opportunity, as aside from strong returns, there is also the opportunity to benefit from significant potential capital growth."

Residents of Manhattan Plaza will not only benefit from a beautifully landscaped piazza and two residents' roof-­‐top gardens, but will also have access to concierge services, 24/7 emergency cover, a private resident's gymnasium and dedicated bicycle storage facilities.

With Canada Square Park at its heart, Canary Wharf has a remarkable 20 acres of outside space with landscaped gardens and fountains to be enjoyed in the summer and one of the most popular ice-­‐rinks open in the winter. Residents will be on the cutting edge of culture with summer screenings and open air concerts offered in Canada Square and at The O2 Arena just two stops away on the Jubilee line, offering a vibrant calendar of changing exhibitions and artistic events all year round.

For those in search of further entertainment and shopping, Manhattan Plaza offers residents fast accessibility to the luxury of London and the unique profile of shops that define the city as one of the world's most coveted shopping capitals. Via the Jubilee Line at Canary Wharf, residents have a direct connection to the fashion, music and theatre offered all over London including Westfield Stratford City and the West End. Blackwall DLR station is just a 3 minute walk* from Manhattan Plaza and offers swift access to The City in 10 minutes* and London City Airport in 13 minutes*.

The introduction of Crossrail at Canary Wharf in 2018, Europe's largest infrastructure project, linking East and West London, will make Canary Wharf an even more accessible part of London. Areas benefiting from a new Crossrail station are expected to achieve significant capital gain and residents can look forward to accelerated travel times from Canary Wharf, offering links to London Liverpool Street in 6 minutes*, Stratford in 8 minutes*, Bond Street in 13 minutes* and Heathrow in 39 minutes*.

Prices start from £450,000 for a one-­bedroom apartment with completions expected from Autumn 2017/Spring 2018.
