London’s new destination: City North

Enjoying the proximity of the capital’s city life


HONG KONG, 9 NOVEMBER 2016 – City North is a new landmark and a vibrant, cosmopolitan development near Finsbury Park. Set across four sleek and stylish buildings including two awe-inspiring towers, this exclusive collection of suites, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments offers residents the very best of 360° living. The project is expected to be completed in summer 2019 to spring 2020. Prices range from £450,000 (HKD 4.33 million) to £1,700,000 (HKD 16.35 million).

Integrated within a growing cultural community, it is only moments from underground and mainline stations that can transport residents to the sights and attractions of central London within minutes.

City North is not only home to a new cultural quarter, it is also a great area to shop, relax and eat out. Stroud Green Road has a bustling and attractive mix of restaurants, cafés, organic food outlets, fashion boutiques, florists and more.

Next to an oasis of green

City North is set amongst some of London's finest outdoor spaces. As well as having the 110-acre Finsbury Park nearby, residents can explore the unspoilt beauty of the 4.5 mile Parkland Walk and can enjoy walks, water sports and open-water swimming in the nearby East & West Reservoirs.

Finsbury Park provides a rich variety of landscapes, facilities, and musical and cultural events, truly making it a 21st century 'People's Park'. It is a neighbourhood that has been relentlessly on the up-and-up for over a decade. A ground-breaking regeneration — with major recent investments in theatre, music and the arts — has transformed Finsbury Park into London's fastest-growing, vibrant cultural hub.

The project is located in a centre of excellence for the art world, featuring the recently created John Jones Art Building and the popular Park Theatre. There's also a multi-screen cinema, supermarket and a fitness centre. On top of that, the area is now home to a dazzling array of quality restaurants, cafés, cosmopolitan shops and stylish boutiques. At City North, residents will also be on the edge of Stroud Green, with its artisan bakeries and specialist coffee shops.

Residents will always be spoilt for choice when it comes to spending quality time just a stone's throw away.

Well connected

Finsbury Park is one of the best-connected neighbourhoods in North London, and residents will be living moments away from its station. With fast Victoria and Piccadilly line tube links to the centre of the capital, it also enjoys fast rail links to King's Cross St. Pancras. Black cabs are plentiful in the area and residents are also only a short journey from key London airports and the Eurostar to Paris from King's Cross – meaning they really can travel anywhere, at any time.

As part of the City North development there will be delivery of a new western station entrance off the main piazza of the development. Finsbury Park station is undergoing further enhancements to create an integrated National Rail and tube interchange.

London is home to a large variety of world-class universities and higher education colleges, from the London School of Economics and Imperial College, through to the Royal College of Art for postgraduate study. In other words, living in City North allows residents to choose from thousands of internationally renowned courses.

Perfect place to entertain

City North not only ensures residents can be in the heart of the action within minutes, but it gives them the perfect place to entertain – with its fantastic 360º vistas of the park and City from the balconies and private terraces.

The interior of the units is contemporary. The living room, hallway and kitchen have engineered timber flooring. All walls and ceilings are painted in white emulsion with a smooth finish. The doors and woodwork have a white satinwood finish. The living room, kitchen and bathrooms have recessed downlights. The bedrooms are carpeted in a warm, neutral colour tone.

Residents of City North will have access to The Pavilion, a landscaped roof garden on The Linear Building, totalling over 2,000 square metres. It provides an outdoor seating area with sweeping vistas across the capital from Finsbury Park, The City to Canary Wharf. In addition, it features an attractive residents' Wi-Fi Lounge which offers a tranquil haven to enjoy all year-round, where residents can entertain, or simply unwind after a busy and fulfilling day.
