December 2016: Over the past decade the South Bank and London Eye have become synonymous with New Year celebrations across the globe, as the firework spectacle airs worldwide.  Now home-buyers can have their very own slice of the action at Belvedere Gardens, a collection of 97 luxury apartments benefitting from unrivalled views onto the London Eye and across the entire city.


Designed by GRID Architects, with entertaining in mind, each apartment has spacious floorplates, with floor-to-ceiling windows, whilst the majority enjoy spacious balconies. Exuding elegance and charm, the interiors have been designed by luxury interior design house Goddard Littlefair and carefully considered to maximise the spectacular panoramic views on offer.


Brian De’ath, Head of Residential Sales at Canary Wharf Group, commented: “We are very lucky to be able to offer people the opportunity to live in a building that speaks for itself. The amazing views from Belvedere Gardens are protected by Jubilee Gardens and the Grade II Listed County Hall, meaning residents will be able to savour front row seats to one of the world’s best New Year spectacles for a long time to come.”


Richard Oakes, Sales & Marketing Director, Europe, Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company adds “It goes without saying that as soon as prospective buyers take in the views for themselves they’re blown away. What we are offering at Southbank Place is an opportunity to experience the best of what London has to offer. The residences at belvedere gardens are exceptional and provide the ultimate venue to enjoy the New Year celebrations.’’


After a night of celebrating at one of London’s best viewing points, residents can enjoy exclusive access to a dedicated 1,700 sq. ft. health and fitness facility, comprising 25-metre swimming pool, spacious steam and sauna rooms, expansive gymnasium and individual exercise rooms that are available for individual classes and bookings.
