Developers hope to create a pocket of “New York inspired urban living” with a collection of 15 loft-style homes at 55VS .
All of the apartments within The Alchemi Group’s new Platinum Collection New York Meets London portfolio, in Westminster, feature a private balcony or vast terrace allowing buyers to soak up scenes of the London skyline from their location at 55 Victoria Street.
Floor to ceiling windows measuring five metres wide give extra scope for picking out the capital’s nearby landmarks, including Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace, while offering a spacious, airy feel throughout the main living space.
Apartment sizes range from 2,500sqft to 3,100sqft and the group believes it has created “a new standard in spacious and beautifully detailed homes.”
Creative director at Alchemi Group Laura Marino said: “The intention was to introduce a subtle New York character to the spaces, using materials and palettes that are intrinsically modern, yet whose quality and character have a timeless appeal.
“We also wanted to offer buyers something slightly different to what they’d see in a typical development. So we kept the proportions and apartment sizes typical of converted, industrial Manhattan loft apartments, focusing on clean lines, and used materials that have luxurious warmth as well as a slight edge.
“Bringing back ideas and elements to create a mix between the sophisticated, sharp and serious London look and the tactile, casual, unexpected New York feel.”
The Penthouse spreads across the 10th and 11th floors of the building with a master suite featuring oiled oak walk-in wardrobes and an en suite.
It is adorned with bespoke materials and textures with features including hand-glazed terracotta tiles and a bathroom finished in Portoro marble.
Residents-only services include a 24-hour concierge, state-of-the-art gym overlooking the courtyard garden, secure parking spaces and a 10-year Zipcar membership as well as access to the communal sky garden.
Meanwhile, luxury restaurants and spa facilities are within easy reach of the SW1 location as well as private members clubs and Victoria Station.
From there, Canary Wharf workers can reach E14 in 20 minutes.
The 55VS Platinum Collection Show Apartment is now ready to visit.
Prices for the Platinum Collection apartments start from £3,570,000.
