Lend Lease launches Trafalgar Place development in London


KUCHING: Lend Lease, the integrated property and infrastructure group, recently announced the launch of its residential development Trafalgar Place which is due for completion in summer/autumn 2015.

According to a press release, the haven in the heart of London, a prime Zone 1 area, included 235 homes over seven contemporary buildings ranging from four to 10 storeys.

This tranquil urban development would lead the way for green living in the heart of the city with each studio, one, two and three bedroom home having a range of innovative and environmentally sustainable features and either a garden, terrace or balcony, it added.

From the higher floors residents will have stunning views looking north across the city whilst lower floors have fine views of green spaces or tree-lined streets. The landscaped will feature a woodland walk, a rain pool water feature, a garden square and al fresco cafe for residents and local community to enjoy.

Mark Dickinson, Lend Lease, managing director of development said, “Trafalgar Place will provide the first new homes to be completed as part of the 1.5 billion pounds regeneration of Elephant & Castle, driven by Lend Lease in partnership with Southwark Council.

“The regeneration is gathering real momentum and will unlock the area’s potential with almost 3,000 new homes, as well as new parks, shops and improved transport taking shape over the next 12 years.

“With the transformation of this well connected part of central London and Lend Lease’s commitment to building vibrant and sustainable living spaces, we are confident of the investment opportunity these residences offer.”

Sales of Trafalgar Place will take place in Kuala Lumpur from April 27 to April 28, 2013 at The Westin Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Guide prices for the first release start at 522 pounds per square feet (psf).

The development’s location in the heart of London on the south side of the River Thames made it one of the best connected places in London, with two underground train lines (Northern and Bakerloo lines), one mainline train station and 28 bus routes, the statement noted.

Lend Lease has operated in Malaysia for over 30 years and has a strong presence in Malaysia with landmark projects including the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, Lembaga Tabung Haji Headquarters, KL Sentral and more recently through a joint venture between a Lend Lease managed fund and leading Malaysian developer S P Setia for Setia City Mall at Shah Alam.
