Harcourt Gardens - South Quay Plaza
Award-winning developer Berkeley has just unveiled the next chapter of its landmark South Quay Plaza development with the launch of Harcourt Gardens. Designed by globally-renowned architects Foster + Partners around the ethos of Life in Harmony, the new phase of 351 homes includes a wealth of relaxing amenities, moments from Canary Wharf. The unique offering includes three leafy gardens interspersed throughout the building spanning 9,000 sq. ft., in addition to co-working space, high-end fitness facilities and a spa with hot tubs on the terrace.
Harcourt Gardens will create an exceptional opportunity for residents to enjoy a balanced lifestyle, with close proximity to all the exciting leisure and business of nearby Canary Wharf. The new tower will stand at 198m tall, with 56 storys providing a mixture of one, two, three-bedroom and penthouse apartments.
Green space is at the heart of Harcourt Gardens, which is surrounded by 2.6 acres of landscaped gardens, complemented by indoor gardens and outside terraces filled with trees, flower and plants every 19 floors. On the 18th floor, the Bamboo Sanctuary will be an urban sanctuary, comprising a state-of-the-art gym, health suite and spa, leading to hot tubs on the outdoor terrace, overlooking the London skyline. On the 37th floor, the iGarden will form an expansive co-working space with indoor and outdoor options, with a games room and sound proofed karaoke studio. Finally, the Sky Meadow, a roof garden on the 55th floor complete with a BBQ area, will provide unrivaled views of the London skyline at almost 200m high.
Residents will automatically become members of The Quay Club, providing access to all of the above facilities but also allowing them to use existing amenities in neighboring Valiant Tower, which include a double-height panoramic swimming pool overlooking the South Dock, extensive gym facilities, 56th floor bar and terrace, screening room, private dining room and meeting room.
The apartments have been carefully curated by interior designers Sheppard Robson and come in a choice of three color palettes; First Light, Noon and Twilight. These allow purchasers to select a theme which best matches their personal tastes, with each offering an elegant backdrop to everyday living. The homes have been designed in an open-plan setting, with fully-fitted kitchens including integrated Siemens appliances and built-in wine coolers. Floor-to-ceiling glazing will ensure that each apartment will have an elevated vista across the London skyline for higher homes or the expansive gardens for homes on the lower floors.
When complete, South Quay Plaza will provide over 1,300 stunning new homes with 40,000 sq. ft. of residents’ amenities. The development is situated moments from Canary Wharf, which is home to five shopping malls and a wide range of restaurants, as well as hosting some of the city’s most significant business headquarters. The area has transformed in recent years, evolving from a predominantly business-orientated district to one which is supplemented by a diverse range of green and waterside spaces, with a thriving community and an exciting events program which means there is always something to do in the area.
Justin Tibaldi, Divisional Managing Director at Berkeley Group, comments, “Launching Harcourt Gardens is a significant milestone in the South Quay Plaza story, bringing together a truly one of a kind lifestyle offering, centered in wellness yet with all the benefits of city living. South Quay Plaza sets a new standard for both design features and wellness allowing residents to truly experience life in harmony; demonstrating that it really is possible to have the best of both worlds.
Apartments at Harcourt Gardens start from $990,000 for a one-bedroom home.
