Property developer Almacantar leads the way on residential development that will revitalise Edgware Road and surrounding areas including London’s newest ‘cultural quarter’.
Lyons Place by Almacantar is a collection of finely crafted, high-quality apartments and townhouses, set at the meeting point of Maida Vale, Little Venice and St John’s Wood. The new building will feature 24 apartments: 13 one-bed apartments, nine two-bedroom apartments and two three-bed duplex penthouses, all of which enjoy private balconies or terraces, with the two duplex penthouse apartments benefiting from large roof terraces. The five beautifully crafted three-storey townhouses feature private street access from Lyons Place and generous outdoor patio areas, as well as stunning views over the surrounding leafy area. Designed by Farrells, the development harnesses best in class modern living with an outdoor area and generous living space in each apartment. Surrounded by ample green space and some of the city’s most famous parks, canals and high-streets it allows for a quiet lifestyle only moments from the heart of the city.
Perfectly positioned at the nexus of two of Central London’s vibrant neighbourhoods, St John’s Wood and Maida Vale, Lyons Place is at the heart of a prime Central London bustling village, with all its key ingredients: – Nature – access to historic parks and high proportion of green space – a stone’s throw away from Regent’s Park and the canals of Little Venice, the City of Westminster’s only local nature reserve and Hyde Park
– Sports and Education – the best of both worlds – located on the doorstep of Lord’s Cricket Ground, Lycée International Français and The American School in London
– Arts and Culture – the area has a history of being home to craft and creativity, benefiting from Alfie’s Antique Market, Lisson Gallery and the world-renowned Abbey Road Studios
– Community – high percentage of young families living in the area and looking to move in
– Transport – excellent links – with already existing access to four tube and rail stations, at its completion in 2020, Lyons Place will benefit from access to Elizabeth Line at Paddington Station, a 12-minute walk away. This connectivity gives residence not only the benefits of village- style living in central London but an accessible gateway to Liverpool Street, Canary Wharf and
Heathrow in minutes.
Lyons Place is located within the recently announced Westminster Council Church Street Masterplan, which will see around 1,750 new homes built between Edgware Road Tube Station and the Regent’s Canal. Alongside the residential developments, the masterplan will include a 40% increase in public open space, an improved street market and a new ‘cultural quarter’ centered around the antique market and Cockpit Theatre. Lyons Place will breathe new life into the area, acting as a vehicle for change with its boutique offering and a catalyst for investment in the area, rapidly following in the footsteps of Marylebone Village.
