Experience the height of refinement at landmark development West End Gate, W2

First phase of Tower apartments launching in Hong Kong

HONG KONG, 11 January 2017 - Encapsulating a setting that marks the gateway to the capital's most iconic districts, exclusive luxury amenities that perfectly complement a busy lifestyle, and a landmark design inspired by the elegant mansions of classic London, West End Gate represents both the heritage and the innovation for which the city is celebrated.

Designed for Berkeley Homes by architects Squire & Partners, this striking development is the pinnacle of contemporary London living. The first limited release of apartments, set in the dramatic Westmark tower, are a collection of stylish Manhattan suites and one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the majority of which feature balconies, and are now available to buy. Prices at West End Gate start from £620,000 (about HKD5.84 million) for a Manhattan suite.

Westmark makes a distinctive statement. At 30 storeys, the tower is the tallest of the buildings at West End Gate and provides sweeping views across London. Set adjacent to the red-brick mansion blocks that complete the development, the architecture is a beautiful blend of tradition and modernity.

The sense of grandeur is immediate on arrival at Westmark, a result of the stylish water features framing the entrance and the imposing space of the lobby. At the heart of West End Gate is the beautifully-landscaped garden and piazza, providing residents with a tranquil place to unwind outdoors.  A linear water feature flows through the square, while ornamental water lilies and flower beds provide the finishing touches.

The apartments themselves exude luxury and style. Bespoke fittings, opulent interiors and state-of-the-art technological details further reflect the luxury and superior quality specification for which Berkeley is renowned.

Situated at the base of the tower, an array of amenities are available to West End Gate's residents exclusively. A 24-hour concierge service means every day-to-day need is catered to, while a pool and private gym, a business lounge and cinema screening room take care of wellbeing, work and play.

Perfectly positioned, the development is in close proximity to the world-renowned restaurants and fashionable bars of London's famous West End, the expansive green gardens of Hyde Park and Regent's Park, and the stylish boutiques and designer labels of prestigious Mayfair.

Immediately north, the picturesque waterways in Maida Vale's popular Little Venice district provide the ideal place for an evening stroll along the canal.

Sales Director for Berkeley Homes Central London, Simon Howard, said: "West End Gate perfectly captures the essence of London living, combining the best of old and new in its design and location. These new apartments are ideally placed to enjoy everything London has to offer, from the excitement and bustle of the West End's night life, to the waterside cafes of Little Venice and the rich culture of stylish Mayfair. West End Gate offers an exciting opportunity for homebuyers and investors alike."

Edgware Road station is a mere one minute walk from West End Gate. Served by the Bakerloo, Circle, District and Hammersmith and City Underground Lines, access across the capital is convenient and frequent. Paddington Station is a short walk away for journeys beyond London and will be served by Crossrail from December 2018. For international travellers, Heathrow Airport can be reached by train from here in 24 minutes.

Adam Challis, Head of UK Residential Research at JLL, said: "Buyers of London residential in 2017 will seek value. With stable price growth expected overall, the locations that will outperform include larger regeneration locations and properties that represent good fundamental investment values such as good location, quality of scheme and a developer with strong track record. We expect property prices in London will rise a further of 1% this year after it grew 3.7% in 2016."
