Tower and landscape service are launched
Partnership is keen to stress its ecological credentials as 199 flats go on sale,
EcoWorld Ballymore has unveiled a double launch for its South Quay development Wardian. Homes at the scheme’s West Tower went on sale on Friday, April 22, with 199 units available.
The development partners also launched The Gardener, an indoor and outdoor landscaping service for residents.
Located just across West India South Dock from Canary Wharf, apartments at Wardian all feature private outdoor space, up to 32.2sq m in size.
The Gardener will provide a selection of plant packages for these as will as apartment interiors, will maintain them and also have a florist on-site.
The West Tower also features the Western Garden – a four-storey area of the western side of the building.
Landscape architect on the project Huw Morgan said: “The launch of the West Tower deservedly brings greenery to the fore and spearheads the movement for London to engage further with its green space.
“With our partners, we are offering customisable gardens to each resident to add to the hundred different exotic species of plants and flowers across the development. Wardian London truly manages to be a retreat in the middle of east London’s beating heart.”
The developers have enlisted Blackdown Horticulture to design innovative “flat-pack gardens” available to all buyers inspired by the Wardian cases used by travellers to recover specimens and transport them home. Residents also get access to The Wardian Club, offering a range of facilities.
Ballymore will continue to manage the development after completion providing, amongst other services, a 24-hour concierge.
The firm’s UK managing director John Mulryan said: “This launch finally marks the day that our vision of outside-in living fully comes to life.
“We are known for creating wonderfully liveable spaces and, with The Gardener we are not just delivering an ideal but a lifestyle.
“Wardian London reflects Nathanial Ward’s spirit of adventure and our own ground-breaking ambitions – this project will cement our reputation of producing unrivalled, unique products.”
Ballymore has extensive experience in east London, having completed a number of property developments near to Canary Wharf including Providence Tower, New Providence Wharf, London City Island and Pan Peninsula.
Wardian is located a three-minute walk from Cabot Square, with both towers comprising 624 suites, apartments and penthouses in two towers rising to 50 and 55 storeys, designed by Glenn Howells Architects.
The first residents are expected to move in during 2019.
Homes at Wardian start at £499,000 for a suite.
