Excerpts from The Heron Spring 2011 Newsletter.
The Heron has featured in a number of articles over the past few months. Here are just some of the things people have been saying about the development.
“Right from the start, The Heron has focused on the highest standards of architecture, aesthetics, interior design, eco-awareness and service. Quite simply, it aims to redefine luxury.”
“Something magical is happening in the City”
“Sleek skyscraper with 284 luxurious apartments”
— London Evening Standard
“Suddenly, EC2 is one of the capital’s most desirable postcodes”
Almost 60% of the apartments have now been sold.
Unsurprisingly given their unique location and impressive quality, interest in The Heron has been very strong. Almost 60% of the apartments have now been sold and further apartments have been released, with properties up to the 30th floor now available to purchase with prices from £490,000.
There is now an iPad app for The Heron. As well as providing apartment details and prices, there is an interactive presentation featuring sophisticated graphics, stunning illustrations and impressive movies.
The marketing suite, The Heron Pavilion, is open seven days a week offering models, videos, images and examples of fittings, fixtures and materials. You can find out more at www.theheron.co.uk, by calling 0845 533 8000 or e-mailing email@example.com
The main tower core continues to rise intothe skyline.
Sir Robert McAlpine has constructed the main tower core on the east side of the development to level 18 and is on programme to continue this up to level 35 by early summer 2011, providing a prominent visual signature for the site. The floor plates to the tower will be constructed progressively ‘level by level’ over the next 18-months.
The basement, mezzanine and ground floor concrete works have been completed as programmed and the Guildhall School is beginning to take shape above ground floor level, particularly on the eastern half of the site where the theatre structure is now clearly visible. The large temporary structures that were providing restraint to the surrounding roads during the basement excavation works have been removed now that the permanent support structures are in place. The structural steelwork which forms the framework of the various performance spaces within the School will commence in April 2011.
Care continues to be taken to minimise disruption to local residents and businesses and the site has been praised by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
Measures implemented to reduce the impact of The Heron’s construction on the local environment include a full time Neighbourhood Liaison Manager, continuous noise monitoring and a one-way traffic system introduced to avoid congestion.
You can now view the progress online at http://www.theheron.co.uk/city-view/webcam where a webcam takes a still image of the construction site every 15 minutes. It will record the progress of the build until The Heron is completed in 2013.
