Meridian gate builds the future of Kidbrooke Village community
Meridian Gate has celebrated its sales success with the release of a further 122 apartments for sale at the flagship Berkeley regeneration scheme in Kidbrooke. With a public showcase of a new show apartment at the Sales and Marketing Suite in April, the release of Manhattan Suites, one, two and three bedroom apartments marked another chapter in the regeneration story of the Kidbrooke Village development.
Construction has steadily progressed within the Meridian Gate neighbourhood, as the externals have started to take shape with the distinctive green rounded balconies making a bold architectural statement. The interiors have been designed by Tara Bernerd - a leading London designer, whose expertise has been sought out by some of the world's biggest names, including Aspinalls and Marco Pierre White - to create contemporary apartments.
Drawing from the architectural designs of the phase and taking inspiration from the local area, the interiors are based on two unique palettes that were created to provide an informal yet modern atmosphere. Wooden flooring throughout the living areas, the subtle of use stone in the bathrooms, carpeted bedrooms and integrated AEG kitchen appliances have made these unique new-build apartments perfectly suited to the modern homeowner looking to take their first or second step on the property ladder.
John Anderson, Chairman of Berkeley Homes (East Thames), comments: "We pride ourselves on offering homes for people in varying life-stages, from first-time buyers and young professionals to families and downsizers. Meridian Gate is at the heart of this established community and has already seen strong interest from buyers looking for easy connections into central London as well as access to parkland, community facilities and the outstanding on-site resident amenities that bring all those who live at Kidbrooke Village together."
The new apartments in Meridian Gate are nestled between the established Sutcliffe Park and the newly formed Cator Park providing a spacious and leafy setting. The Kidbrooke Village Masterplan, which was devised by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands architects, encompasses a vast 109 hectares and is coming to life as the scheme continues to grow and mature with every milestone achieved. The development is an entirely new London village with 4,800 new mixed-tenure homes, approximately 104,000 sq ft of commercial and retail space, community facilities, integrated healthcare facilities, sports pitches and leisure facilities, as well as 55 hectares of parkland and open spaces.
The four phases of development are set around a new park, known as Cator Park, which creates a 'green river' through the centre of Kidbrooke Village and connects the existing green areas of Sutcliffe Park and Blackheath. Across the entire development, only 35% of the land has been developed on, with green open space dedicated to parks, sports facilities and the public realm, ensuring that residents and the existing local community can make the most of the outdoors.
In zone three, Kidbrooke Village benefits from superb transport links which provide easy access to the West End, city and Canary Wharf. Existing train services run through Kidbrooke station, located in the Kidbrooke Village Centre providing direct access to London Bridge (15 minutes), Waterloo East (19 minutes), Charing Cross (23 minutes) and Victoria (28 minutes) - all of which connect to the London Underground network. From Lewisham station (six minutes away) residents will be able to connect with the DLR providing access to Canary Wharf in 22 minutes.
