Rental de­vel­oper Fo­lio Lon­don is mar­ket­ing its Porters Edge scheme as of­fer­ing value for money, given its lo­ca­tion and fa­cil­i­ties. Part of hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion Not­ting Hill Gen­e­sis, the com­pany says renters work­ing in cen­tral Lon­don could po­ten­tially save nearly £600 a year on travel due to its lo­ca­tion close to Canada Wa­ter Tube sta­tion in Zone 2, in com­par­i­son to those need­ing a Zones 1-4 Trav­el­card.

With apart­ments avail­able to move into from this month, other temp­ta­tions in­clude com­pli­men­tary car club mem­ber­ship, dis­counts at lo­cal Cafe Mouse­tail and on-site man­age­ment and DIY ser­vices in­cluded in the price.

Fa­cil­i­ties at Porters Edge in­clude a gym, a res­i­dents’ lounge with free Wi-fi and a 2,900sq m rooftop gar­den, com­plete with a multi-use sports area where res­i­dents can play five-a-side foot­ball, bas­ket­ball or ten­nis. Its el­e­vated rooftop court­yard also has a chil­dren’s play area.

Fo­lio Lon­don di­rec­tor Lizzie Stevens said: “The UK’s pri­vate rented sec­tor is grow­ing steadily, with the re­sult that de­vel­op­ers are now work­ing to meet ten­ants’ needs from the ground up.

“Ten­ants are now ex­pect­ing much more from their rental prop­er­ties and land­lords in terms of ameni­ties and ser­vice.

“Fo­lio Lon­don, is proud to be de­liv­er­ing im­pres­sive fa­cil­i­ties backed by a no­table ser­vice of­fer­ing, to meet the needs of dis­cern­ing res­i­dents.

“At Porters Edge, that means a 24-hour concierge, free com­mu­nal res­i­dent Wi-fi, ac­cess to shared out­doors space, a res­i­dents’ lounge and games area, plus flex­i­ble te­nan­cies, fur­ni­ture pack­ages and an on-site man­age­ment and DIY ser­vice – and all at no ex­tra cost.”

Porters Edge, a joint ven­ture be­tween Not­ting Hill Gen­e­sis and Sel­lar, com­prises 234 homes di­vided into one, two and three­bed­room apart­ments, du­plexes and a col­lec­tion of four-bed­room town­houses.

Lo­cated one stop from Ca­nary Wharf on the Ju­bilee line, res­i­dents can ex­pect a com­mute of 11 min­utes door-to-door.

Prices for a stu­dio apart­ment at Porters Edge start at £1,575 per month ris­ing to £1,750 for a one-bed and £2,250 for a two-bed, two-bath.
