Waterfront apartments launch to the market in Poole

The first new homes at a water­front devel­op­ment in Poole have launched to the market offering a new destin­a­tion for luxury coastal living.

The Water­front, by London Land Group, is located at West Quay Harbour, with views across Upton Lake and Twin Sails Bridge. There will be a total of 291 new one, two and three bedroom apart­ments and penthouses with spacious living areas, elegant kitchens and beautiful bathrooms with luxurious finishes.

A launch event was held at the devel­op­ment on Thursday, May 18, to mark the opening of the sales suite with catering provided by St Tropez Lounge. Guests including the Mayor of Poole, Cllr Tony Trent and Poole BID lead Jacqui Rock were in attend­ance, with talks from Mario Luca Balducci, Chief Executive Officer, London Land Group, and Andy Scott, Head of Resid­en­tial Devel­op­ment at Octopus Real Estate.

The apart­ments, which are being marketed by Savills, will be arranged across five buildings, reaching up to 11 storeys high, with the design taking inspir­a­tion from the rich maritime heritage of the surround­ing area. Residents will have access to a wide range of amenities, including a profes­sion­ally landscaped communal courtyard with office pods, two furnished resident club lounges with full kitchen and dining facil­it­ies and exclusive roof terraces with views out across the harbour.

The welcoming entrance lobby will have concierge services and there will also be an app to provide residents with useful inform­a­tion and the latest community events.

The high specific­a­tion in the apart­ments provide residents with a high-end living exper­i­ence with additional space, state-of-the-art appli­ances and private balconies with breath-taking views of the surround­ing area and will include thermo­stat­ic­ally controlled under­floor heating to all rooms, mechan­ical ventil­a­tion, LED lighting through­out, video intercom and smart home ready features.

The kitchens will feature Italian made handle­less contem­por­ary kitchen cabinets, luxury composite stone polished counter­tops, with marble quartz in the penthouse apart­ments, and floor to ceiling porcelain tiles in the bathrooms. There will also be a passenger lift to all floors.

Helen Asteris, director, Savills resid­en­tial devel­op­ment sales team, said: “We are thrilled to be launching this major new devel­op­ment which will introduce a vibrant new community and inspired harbour living to Poole. We are expecting a great deal of interest, with potential buyers drawn to the luxury finish, exclusive communal facil­it­ies and of course its water­front location, with many of the apart­ments enjoying views across the water.”

The marketing suite at the foot of the Twin Sales Bridge is now open, with a show home expected early 2024. The apart­ments are set to be complete in Summer 2024.
