The Residence at Nine Elms is a residential development of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments on London's South Bank. It forms part of the major transformation of this once industrial area into a thriving residential and business district at the heart of the capital.​</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The development offers 320 apartments with the sizes range between around 500 and 1,660 sq ft. A batch of 63 units is expected to be completed in the second half of 2018 and prices start at £599,995 (about HKD6.19 million).​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">All of these new homes in Nine Elms are superbly appointed and will enjoy picturesque views over the River Thames, or surrounding piazzas, parks and public spaces.  A number of apartments will also offer views of the new American embassy, which is under construction opposite The Residence and is due for completion in 2018 and 2019.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Internally, the apartments will feature contemporary design and an exceptional specification. Kitchens will boast quality appliances and bathrooms offer spa-like fittings. Residents will also have the luxury of an on-site gym, cinema room, private function room and a concierge service.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">For commuters, The Residence will benefit from the extension of London Underground's Northern Line to the area with the creation of two new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. This will improve travel by tube into central, north and south London and is expected to be operational from 2020, with estimated journey times from Nine Elms to the City of just 12 minutes and to Westminster of eight minutes.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">A proposed pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Thames will also connect this part of the south bank with Pimlico, which is close to Victoria mainline train station.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Currently, the nearest tube station is Vauxhall Underground Station (Victoria Line), less than 15 minutes walk from The Residence, while the nearest railway stations to the development are Queenstown Road and Battersea Park, around 20 minutes walk away (for services to London Bridge and London Victoria).​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">For families, two new schools will be built as part of the creation of this new district, these are in addition to well-regarded current schools near the development, which include St George's CE Primary, St Stephen's CE Primary, and Griffin Primary.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Shopping constitutes a major focus of the area's transformation, with outdoor shopping areas and parades attracting retailers large and small, enhancing existing stores in the locality and the largest wholesale fruit, vegetable and flower market in the UK – New Covent Garden Market.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The environment itself will be remodelled, with a linear park stretching from Battersea Power Station to Vauxhall Cross, traversed by footpaths and cycle routes, linking with the Thames River Path, as well as public squares and gardens planned as part of the new district.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Restaurants, pavement cafés, hotels, event space, galleries and public art will all add to the allure of the area, providing residents of these new homes in Nine Elms with myriad leisure opportunities on their doorstep and enhancing the already prolific arts presence of London's celebrated South Bank.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Hong Kong launch event</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Date:       27-29 October 2017 (Friday and Sunday)</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Time:      11am – 7pm</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Venue:   Tian & Di Room, 7/F, Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 15 Queen's Road Central, Central, Hong Kong</p><p> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">For more information about the project, please contact:</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Mandy Wong, <a href="mailto:irp.hk@ap.jll.com">irp.hk@ap.jll.com</a>, (852) 3759 0909  or visit</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href="https://www.jllproperty.com.hk/international-sales">https://www.jllproperty.com.hk/international-sales</a> </p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;">- ends -</p>0x0100E81015D9D08198458B498FF948D658F90052B0972AFC77B94093C478C1B5B47C88
