The Observatory launches at Greenwich Millennium Village

| News

Saturday 27th November marked the launch of the one-bedroom apartments at The Observatory – the second phase of the ‘Parkside Collection’ to be released at Greenwich Millennium Village - providing a new opportunity to live at this sought-after village address. Once complete, The Observatory will deliver 65 superior quality one and two-bedroom apartments, with Help-to-buy available on a selection of homes.

A prime location

Set in a unique position within Greenwich Millennium Village, adjacent to the River Thames and the ecology park, The Observatory boasts some of the best views over London and the surrounding parkland. Residents will benefit from a communal rooftop terrace on the 10th floor, thoughtfully designed to include quiet seating areas and beautiful landscaped planting, providing an idyllic spot to enjoy the panoramic views of the river, city and beyond.

Apartments perfect for modern day living

What’s more, each apartment has been carefully designed to take advantage of the building’s idyllic location, featuring floor to ceiling windows and private balconies, allowing residents to enjoy the fantastic views over the surrounding greenspace from the comfort of their home. Sold with a high-quality specification, each home has been designed with modern day living in mind, from open-plan layouts with integrated appliances to carefully crafted storage spaces, including luxurious built-in wardrobes. In addition, many apartments benefit from en-suite bathrooms whilst all include beautifully finished timber flooring, fully carpeted bedrooms and underfloor heating throughout.

As well as fantastic views and beautiful apartments, The Observatory will also offer an impressive resident’s lounge – the perfect space to socialise, work and relax. With its flexible design and high-speed internet, it creates the perfect space for modern flexible working.

Best of both worlds – village life in the capital

Situated on the edge of London’s thriving commercial and business scene, Greenwich Millennium Village is one of the best-connected developments in the city. Travelling into the city could not be easier with Canary Wharf just one stop from nearby North Greenwich station as well as Stratford and London Bridge only 10 minutes away.

The growing community enjoys the expanse of parklands that are central to the life in this urban village. The four-acre Ecology Park harbours a diverse range of wildlife while Southern Park envelops homes in swathes of green space to enjoy. Connecting the village to the Thames, a ‘green corridor’ meanders throughout the development, while picturesque lakes, ponds, marshland, meadows, woodland and beaches, transport residents and visitors out of the city.

This urban village has been carefully designed to ensure the community has everything it needs to thrive and grow. The newly developed Trathen Square offers residents access to a Co-op, barbers and pharmacy whilst the already well-established Village Square is home to a convenience store, dry cleaners, hairdressing salon, beauty spa and café located at the heart of the community.

Chris Bladon, Managing Director, Eastern Home Counties, says:

“We are very excited to launch The Observatory at Greenwich Millennium Village marking the latest opportunity to live at this ever-evolving address. The Observatory  boasts a fantastic location within the development and will offer residents some of the best views in London and  demonstrates our commitment to creating places people love.”

Chris Genner, Project Director Greenwich Millennium Village, says:

“Launching The Observatory marks another milestone as we continue to  build on the 20-year legacy of Greenwich Millennium Village. This latest phase of homes will provide another opportunity to buy at this popular address as we remain committed to meeting the demand for high quality homes.”
