AGC kicks off its Build to Rent partnership with Vertus
Canary Wharf’s latest district, Wood Wharf, was designed to provide a new residential and commercial waterside community. The 23-acre site is host to collaborative revolutionary office spaces and retail, balanced with a charming waterside setting and welcoming green space. Amongst the new developments is the characterful low-rise, 8 Water street. Developers, Canary Wharf Group, created a thriving residential community with its 174 apartments overlooking the south dock, quiet boardwalks and floating pavilions of water square.
Behind the scenes, our dedicated design team have been busy working closely with Build to Rent operator – Vertus – to create three unique and bespoke schemes that fit the premium development, which consisted of studios, one-bed, two-bed and three-bedroom penthouses. The total of dressed units stands at a whopping 160 dressed units and three premium penthouses all by the award-winning AGC team – with a show floor showcasing the interiors.
Set to raise the bar for the future – Sophie has worked closely with Vertus to create spaces that will be unrivalled in the Build to Rent sector.
“We’ve worked hard to create flexible, elegant and tranquil schemes that enrich tenants’ lifestyles without limitations.”Sophie Wilson, Interior Designer
Pet-friendly apartments become the latest must-have property trend
Recent statistics show that 41% of UK households include at least one pet. Surveys suggest that Londoners differ from the rest of the country in that they are more likely to own a dog than a cat.
With that in mind, Vertus leads the way with 8 Water Street being the first pet friendly development in Canary Wharf. AGC Interior designer, Sophie Wilson, was careful in choosing stain treated durable fabrics for those messy pups!
Communal areas fitted to encourage a positive work-life balance
The communal spaces feature a self-service bar, private dining room and screening room – which have been tweaked in design since Covid-19 to allow flexible communal workspaces and outdoor social spaces that residents can make their own. Vertus offer monthly event programmes which encourage a positive work-life balance.
“The interiors that AGC have curated for our apartments have been expertly showcased on our newly finished show floor. We are thrilled with the end result and are confident that our tenants will not only love the schemes, but will get excited about living in our newest Vertus development.”Alastair Mullens of Vertus
