Grand Union: a stylish abode by the canal side

Overseas Education | 19 Sep 2019

Some 8 miles away from London’s beating heart Oxford Circus, a celebratory rebirth is well underway. Alperton, a former industrial hub on the north-west of the British capital, is being reimagined into one of London’s most happening districts.

Hot on the heels of this latest development, housebuilder St. George, a proud member of ‘one of Britain’s most successful, sustainable developers’ the Berkeley Group, has activated its prime project Grand Union, which is certain to breathe new life into the district.

“We are delighted to unveil the new homes and amenities at Affinity House, the jewel in the crown of phase 1 at Grand Union, which form an important part of our vision to open up the Grand Union Canal and create a vibrant new waterside destination for North West London,” says Tim Gawthorn, sales and marketing director at St. George.

Perched on the bank of the Grand Union Canal, London’s longest canal which connects London to historical Birmingham, Affinity House affords a unique and envied waterfront lifestyle.

In close proximity to the local transportation network, Affinity House, connected to central London through the Piccadilly line and Overground Line, is just 26 minutes away from Oxford Circus. Residents can also take a pleasant 30-minute canalside bicycle ride to Paddington. Affinity House is a blend of tranquility with the very best in connectivity.

Built upon a generous 22-acre swathe of land, the complex sets a new benchmark for quality, form, and function. Each of the apartments is well-crafted and fully functional, boasting a spacious private outdoor space, bespoke furnishings, and a palette of contemporary yet neutral colors that provides an unobtrusive backdrop for every design style.

In line with the Berkeley Group’s company-wide approach to tackling climate change, Affinity House’s design is conceptualized on sustainability. The apartments are equipped with energy-efficient LED spotlights, as well as PIR dimmable lighting control, which allow for more efficient power use.

The kitchen appliance package, smart home system, as well as the Manhattan-styled interiors, instantly telegraph a commitment to excellence.

This ethos prevails in every feature and amenity in this property project. There is a host of facilities provided for the local community, including a commercial gym, a nursery, an on-site medical center, a convenience store and a colorfully decorated residence lounge.

Overlooking the Grand Union Canal is the building’s private landscaped podium garden and a 5,000-sq. ft. community center, which encompasses a community garden, kitchens, and flexible event spaces for existing and new residents. It makes a perfect place for people to entertain, socialize, or enjoy a vibrant year-round calendar of events and exciting workshops. These, along with a 24-hour concierge service provided by Grand Union, are a sure sign that perfect attendance is within your reach.

Located in a vibrant ‘golden triangle’ of north-west London regeneration zones, Affinity House is a short stroll to the piazza that teems with waterside restaurants, cafes and shops. The excellent school network in the vicinity also ensures a great learning environment.

Affinity House comes in four options: Manhattan, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. Prices start from £380,000 for a Manhattan apartment. Estimated Completion of Grand Union – Affinity House will be on Q4 2022.
