Elephant Park –
WhatHouse? Best Sustainable Development
The development comprises eight apartment buildings which are a mix of mid-rise mansion buildings and towers that vary in scale from five to 31 storeys. Its 593 homes look out over two residents’ courtyards offering a distinctive woodland or orchard landscape, as well as ample play areas, relaxed seating and richly varied planting. The green landscape stretches from the generous courtyards, where new trees, living walls and green roofs will help to filter the air.
In West Grove there is no shortage of green transport options. There are 644 residents' bicycle spaces in total, meaning each home will have at least one bicycle space, as well as access to dedicated bike maintenance and cleaning areas. A fifth of the 96 basement parking spaces will include charging ports for electric cars and another fifth will have the potential to be fitted with electric points in the future. However, there is no need to own a car, as the first residents to move in will also receive the benefit of a three-year car club membership.
All residents will enjoy the convenience of a 24-hour concierge service and generous lobbies, including the ‘Club Lobby’ area which provides a welcoming ‘third space’ to work, socialise and relax. Even those living in smaller households can enjoy larger gatherings with friends and family, with access to two residents’ function rooms, complete with generous garden terraces and gym facilities. Residents' grow gardens in each courtyard offer the chance to plant and nurture vegetables and herbs. West Grove will also include a vibrant new shopping street that runs throughout Elephant Park, where residents will have the chance to discover independent, artisan shops, alongside cafés and bars.
