Canary Wharf cool comes to Peterborough

Award-winning property developer Weston Homes is bringing Canary Wharf cool to Peterborough with the launch of their waterside residential and commercial development Fletton Quays on 26 January 2018

Situated on the banks of the River Nene in Peterborough, this remarkable £70 million development will comprise four residential buildings with three to seven storeys, which will contain a total of 358 one, two and three-bedroom apartments. The apartment buildings provide London-like architecture with their striking glass and panelled façades to the river frontage, and brick and balconied elevations behind. The buildings front onto a wide tree-lined waterfront boulevard which has green areas, planting and even an ‘urban beach’ fronting onto the river.

Providing views of the city and the river, including the famous 12th century Gothic Peterborough Cathedral, Fletton Quays is set to transform and revitalise the historic waterfront of Peterborough. Once home to a series of derelict buildings and disused land, the new residential development forms part of a wider £120 million redevelopment of Peterborough’s South Bank, which will also include offices and bars. Weston Homes has been working alongside the Peterborough Investment Partnership to rejuvenate this waterfront area with its high quality apartment offering.

Also planned for the site and located just next door to Weston Homes’ stunning development is a nine storey, 160 bedroom ‘inverted’ hotel – set to be branded the Hilton Garden Inn – in which lifts take hotel visitors to the uppermost floors, where there is the reception/concierge, restaurants and rooftop bar facilities.

Bob Weston, Chairman and CEO of Weston Homes said: ‘Fletton Quays will provide a new community for Peterborough’s expanding population, providing high class city centre apartments in a striking architectural style more often associated with Canary Wharf. The redevelopment of the South Bank is also sure to cement Peterborough’s status as one of the UK’s fastest growing cities. With all it has to offer, there is no doubt that Fletton Quays will become the jewel in the crown of Peterborough.’

Although Fletton Quays is designed to be a modern, economically and environmentally sustainable low-carbon offering, the site remains sympathetic to the history and culture of Peterborough, whilst embracing the area’s growing cosmopolitan reputation. A number of the apartments boast balconies connected to either living areas or bedrooms, providing exquisite riverside views.

Each home at Fletton Quays will be built with Weston Homes’ signature high specification. The Oakwood designed kitchen will provide each resident with a stainless steel electric oven, ceramic hob and Caple chimney extractor as well as an integrated fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher. Residents will also be offered a choice of designer units and quartz stone worktops and upstands. Each kitchen will further provide a Fascino stainless steel sink with integrated removable chopping boards and an instant boiling tap. The luxury family and en-suite bathrooms will be finished with a Fascino digitally controlled Smart Tap and Smart Mirror with LED lighting, shaver socket, digital clock and de-mist pad. The walnut vanity unit will add a smart touch to the bathroom and will also provide integrated storage space and a black porcelain worktop.

Residents will also be given a choice of RAK Ceramics porcelain wall and floor tiles with either a matte or polished finish. Each bathroom will also have a Fascino Smart shower or bath. Each apartment will be beautifully finished with forest oak doors and polished chrome ironmongery, matching wrapped door-lining architraves and skirting. Residents will be offered a choice of white oak or ebony oak strip wood flooring to the entrance hall, living area, dining area and kitchen. There will also be a choice of carpets for the bedrooms. The living area and master bedrooms will both be fitted with Virgin Media television and telephone points and each apartment will be fully heated with gas-fired radiators.

Located in East Station Road, Fletton Quays offers exceptional road and rail links, with the M11 corridor providing easy access to London, Essex and Cambridgeshire among others. Peterborough Railway Station, located only a four-minute drive from the Fletton Quays development, provides high speed services from Peterborough into London’s Kings Cross, with a journey time of 48 minutes. In addition to excellent commuter links, Peterborough city centre is easily accessible on foot, and the area has an abundance of heritage attractions, award winning parks and nature reserves.
