Solid returns from Landmark Pinnacle, London’s tallest residential tower /hong-kong/en-gb/news/575/solid-returns-from-landmark-pinnacle-londons-tallest-residential-towerSolid returns from Landmark Pinnacle, London’s tallest residential tower <p><strong style="text-align:justify;">​HONG KONG</strong><span style="text-align:justify;">, </span><strong style="text-align:justify;">20 February 2017</strong><span style="text-align:justify;"> - JLL and City Pride Limited presents Landmark Pinnacle, which at 75 floors is one of London's tall</span><span style="text-align:justify;">est residential towers, located on the doorstep of Canary Wharf. The project will provide spectacular uninterrupted views to the west over the River Thames and London's skyline and to the east over West India Dock, Canary Wharf and the O2 Dome. The opportunity being offered </span><span style="text-align:justify;">in Hong Kong </span><span style="text-align:justify;">is to forward-purchase multiple private residential floors within this 75 storey tower.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The location of the Landmark Pinaccle is excellent, with Heron Quay DLR Station located only 160 m to the East of the site and Canary Wharf London Underground Station (Jubilee line) 1 km to the north. The new Canary Wharf Crossrail station is due to open in 2018 and is an easy walk from the site.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Landmark Pinnacle consists of a 75 storey residential tower and a separate low-rise pavilion building. Its simple, pure form combined with high-quality materials and detailing will be a fantastic addition to the Canary Wharf skyline.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Forward-purchasing opportunity</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The private residential accommodation will comprise 752 apartments and will commence on level 11 and rise to level 74. In addition to a private rooftop garden terrace at level 75, the tower will provide private residents amenity space on levels 27 and 56. Amenities include a residents club lounge, gymnasium, yoga room, large play area for children, cinema, golf simulator, pool and games room, etc.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The opportunity being offered is to forward-purchase multiple private residential floors within this 75 storey tower between levels 28 and 55. Each floor offers 14 apartments with the sizes range between 371 and 1,085 sq ft. The project offers studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom flats. Prices start at £399,950 (HKD3.87 million).</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The development will be built by Chalegrove Properties Limited (CPL) and has been designed by architects Squire & Partners. CPL is a UK developer with a track record in major residential developments. The Landmark Pinnacle will be the third project in the Canary Wharf area. Squire and Partners has been designing and executing buildings on key sites in London and internationally for over 35 years.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Deluxe interiors</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The interior oozes quality. The kitchen is custom designed and fully integrated, finished in white matt gloss. Worktops and splashbacks are in composite stone. The sink is in mounted stainless steel and has a single lever mixer tap. The combination and microwave oven and induction hob are Siemens, as are the integrated refrigerator, dishwasher and combined washer/dryer.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">There is a ceiling-mounted and wall mounted hand-held shower in all showers and baths. The bathroom has a bespoke vanity unit with integrated ceramic basin with chrome tap and built in storage, a mirrored toiletries cabinet with integral lighting.  The white steel enamel bath comes with featured heated chrome towel bars/rail large format porcelain floor and wall tiles. All bathrooms/ shower rooms have under-floor heating.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Canary Wharf investment outlook</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The £14.8bn Crossrail project will improve the connectivity of Canary Wharf and in particular, the links to the City and Heathrow. Work started in May 2009 on what is Europe's largest construction project. It is scheduled to begin operation by 2018. JLL's extensive research of all 40 Crossrail stations and the immediate surrounding area found that Canary Wharf is expected to be one of the top 10 largest beneficiaries from the regeneration effects of Crossrail. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">One of the overriding characteristics of the 'second generation' of Canary Wharf real estate is the genuine mixed-use profile that has emerged over the past decade. Residential towers, notably to the south of the Canary Wharf estate, now sit comfortably alongside high-density, high-value commercial space, including a vibrant retail mix anchored on Cabot Place as well as a broad range of restaurants and bars that provide a 24/7 leisure offer for local residents. The local population can be characterised in the main as young professionals.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The resulting impact on residential values has been significant, with price growth in Canary Wharf around 50% since Q2 2009. Canary Wharf prices are now on a par with many of the emerging neo-Prime locations of London and the area has become the preserve of high-value employees in finance. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Importantly, many purchasers and renters in Canary Wharf work elsewhere in Central London, demonstrating that the area has become a desirable residential location in its own right and is no longer strictly reliant on the local employment base. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">When comparing Canary Wharf against other submarkets within Central London, it is one of the top-performing Core submarkets. With the opening of Crossrail, we expect Canary Wharf to achieve above-average price growth over the next few years – in excess of many other Core submarkets.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Looking forward</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">At a fundamental level London residential demand remains well-supported. Over the medium-term, this will put upward pressure on prices across all sub-markets, with a particular strength expected in suburban locations.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Canary Wharf is forecast to benefit strongly from its new Crossrail station, with price growth outstripping the Central London market and performing broadly in-line with Greater London. Over the medium term, Canary Wharf is forecast to see house price growth of between 1% and 7% pa over the next five years.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Planning permission for the Landmark Pinnacle was granted in October 2013. Construction began in Q3 2016 and the first phases will complete in 2020. JLL are the appointed sales agents for the scheme. </p><p><strong>Hong Kong launch event:</strong></p><p>Date:                            24-26 February 2017 (Fri-Sun) </p><p>Time:                            11am-7pm</p><p>Venue:                          Tian & Di Room, 7/F, Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 15 Queen's Road Central, Central, Hong Kong</p><p> </p><p><strong>For more information about the project, please contact: </strong></p><p>Mandy Wong, <a href="mailto:irp.hk@ap.jll.com">irp.hk@ap.jll.com</a>, (852) 3759 0909 or visit</p><p><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><p> </p>0x0100E81015D9D08198458B498FF948D658F90052B0972AFC77B94093C478C1B5B47C88
