Doors open at Ruskin Square as brand new homes launch

Brand new luxury apartments at Ruskin Square, Croydon’s exciting new business, residential and leisure quarter, are set to go on sale this weekend, providing the opportunity for buyers to secure their chosen home on the day.

The launch, which takes place between 10am – 6pm this coming Saturday at AMP House, Dingwall Road, Croydon, will allow people to find out more information about the first phase of spectacular new homes, known as ‘Vita’, and the wider Ruskin Square development. Guests will be able to look at specification samples of materials being used for kitchens, tiling and flooring, whilst enjoying an unprecedented bird’s eye view of construction progress from the 11th floor.

Vita has been designed by leading, London-based architects AHMM and comprises a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom homes set within an elegant, sculpted L-shape, with a nine-storey plinth and a soaring 22-storey tower. Each and every apartment will enjoy its own direct access to a secure, outdoor amenity area – either a large balcony or sizeable terrace and private gardens at ground level. In addition, the building will also have a roof garden on the 9th floor, providing breath-taking views across Croydon towards London and the surrounding countryside.

Residents at Vita will enjoy brightly lit, stylish and spacious open plan living, with floor-to-ceiling windows and quality fixtures and fittings across all apartments. Bathrooms will be beautifully appointed, with wide format tiles, monsoon rain shower heads and stylish, newly designed suites, whilst all kitchens will come with the latest ultra-thin stone worktops and fully integrated, German engineered Neff appliances.

Located directly adjacent to East Croydon station, residents will have unrivalled access to one of the South East’s best connected transport hubs, which offers train services connecting to Central London in under 15 minutes.

With completion scheduled for 2016, construction work at Vita began in July 2014, with Places for People managing this first phase of homes which forms part of the £500 million Ruskin Square development. In total, the vibrant new scheme will include up to 625 residential units, together with five Grade A office buildings providing up to 1.25 million sq ft of new accommodation. Ruskin Square will also offer 100,000 sq ft of shops, cafes and restaurants, all set within attractive public realm space. It has also been confirmed that Boxpark, which opened the world’s first pop-up mall in Shoreditch, East London in 2011, will be opening a new Boxpark at Ruskin Square in the summer of 2016.

Commenting on the launch, Elliott Stiling, Sales and Marketing Director at Places For People, said:

“Ruskin Square is one of London’s most spectacular new developments, which, coupled with the wider regeneration works planned for Croydon over the next five years, will completely transform the centre of the town and create a thriving, stylish and vibrant new community. We are in no doubt that this will be one of South London’s most desirable neighbourhoods to live in and judging by registrations for the launch event so far we are anticipating a busy event this weekend”
