Vertus’ pet-friendly build-to-rent development 8 Water Street hits full occupancy ahead of schedule – 11.05.22

Vertus, Canary Wharf Group’s residential leasing and operating arm, has reached stabilisation ahead of schedule at its pet-friendly development 8 Water Street in Wood Wharf. Launched in October 2020, 8 Water Street is one of Vertus’ three build-to-rent buildings, offering 174 apartments in a mix of studio to three-bedroom homes. The award-winning development was named Best London BTR Development in the HomeViews Awards last year.

Designed by renowned architects Stanton Williams, 8 Water Street intimately connects residents to the water and green spaces below. A landscaped private garden overlooks South Dock and the quiet boardwalks and gardens of Harbour Quay and the floating pavilions of Water Square, while the expansive roof terrace above is the largest outdoor space in the Vertus portfolio. Residents enjoy the tranquillity of waterside living whilst being moments from high quality new restaurants including Hawksmoor and Emilia’s Crafted Pasta. They also benefit from complimentary membership to the Estate’s Third Space venue, Europe’s largest luxury health club.

Like all Vertus residences, 8 Water Street offers state-of-the-art amenities, including a self-service bar with free vend bean-to-cup coffee machines and wine dispensers, a private dining room, a lounge area and co-working areas and private outdoor space. Also available to all Vertus residents is Club Vertus, set up to create a range of curated events to encourage like-minded residents to make the most of the exceptional indoor and outdoor shared spaces.

Alastair Mullens, Managing Director, Vertus said: “The appetite for build-to-rent apartments in London continues apace, and with the exceptional living spaces on offer at 8 Water Street and its location within the thriving new neighbourhood of Wood Wharf, it’s easy to see why. 8 Water Street was launched in the middle of the pandemic which makes reaching full occupancy ahead of schedule all the more remarkable. It’s testament to the tenacity of our Club Vertus team who worked so hard to accelerate our programme of online events – and outdoor events when permitted – that we were able to cultivate such a strong sense of community when it was most needed. The fact 8 Water Street is a pet-friendly building has also been a big attraction for many new residents.”

Prices start from £1,950pcm, which includes access to the communal amenities, high-speed broadband and Samsung HD Smart TV with a TV licence.
