Taylor Wimpey Central London launches landmark development overlooking Lambeth Palace


​Hong Kong, 1 March 2016 – Leading boutique developer, Taylor Wimpey Central London, has launched Palace View; a landmark development of just 55 apartments and penthouses overlooking the medieval Lambeth Palace on the River Thames.

The collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments is thoughtfully designed to both maximise and reflect its elegant surrounding views which include the capital's iconic Palace of Westminster. Occupying the prestigious address of 1 Lambeth High Street, Palace View enjoys a prime location, situated at the foot of Lambeth Bridge, in London's travel Zone 1.

Bespoke inspired design

Featuring a subtle, curved brick façade that's complemented by copper style detailing, the eight- storey building is sensitive to its historic surroundings and the ornate architecture of the neighbouring Lambeth Palace – the Archbishop of Canterbury's London residence. The scheme introduces a modern residential marker to one of London's most prestigious landscapes that boasts a heritage spanning over 800 years, and showcases stylish and contemporary interiors by award-winning design practice, Farrells.

 

Many of the apartments have been designed to take full advantage of its surrounding views with well-appointed open-plan layouts and floor-to-ceiling glazing. A mix of interior features work in harmony with a bespoke lighting design to create sophisticated living spaces that take inspiration from, and reflect the quality of, surroundings of great prestige.

Each home has the added benefit of valuable outdoor space, with either a terrace, balcony or winter garden extending the interior space and providing a desirable inner-city sanctuary that can be enjoyed all year round.

Displaying the highest standards in design, craftsmanship and attention to detail, the apartments integrate a host of leading appliances to cater for the requirements of comfort and practicality, including bespoke kitchens, underfloor heating, and comfort cooling to living areas and the master bedroom. Other facilities available include a private cinema room, personal concierge service, secure underground car parking, a fully-equipped gym and a landscaped courtyard.

A new riverside destination for arts and culture

Lambeth itself is now a flourishing cultural quarter with a bustling, artistic scene just moments from Palace View. Key attractions include Damian Hirst's Newport Street Gallery, Charles Asprey's 'Cabinet' gallery, The Garden Museum, Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, and much-loved local gems such as Gasworks Gallery and Brunswick House Café – a highly-lauded restaurant adjoined to LASSCO, an Aladdin's cave of architectural antiques and curiosities.

Palace View is positioned at the gateway to Albert Embankment, the capital's last central riverside regeneration area, which is currently being transformed into a new Thames-side destination featuring a modern, open plaza of bars, restaurants and cafés in which to relax and spend time.

Residents can also look forward to new routes and green links that will forge connections not only between the South Bank, Albert Embankment and the Nine Elms regeneration area - but also beyond to Battersea. New north-south connections are set to be opened up throughout the borough, with new retail, leisure amenities and green space also in the pipeline creating two vibrant new 'town centre' hubs at Vauxhall and at Battersea Power Station.

Buyers can choose from a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with prices starting from £745,000. The first homes are due for completion in Q4 2017/Q1 2018.
