Description of Abell House

Abell & Cleland House is a residential building in the heart of Westminster, London SW1.

The site was previously occupied by vacant government office buildings which were replaced with a scheme designed by Stirling Prize nominated Architects DSDHA.

Situated within a sought after area in prime central London, Abell & Cleland is within easy reach of the River Thames and the renowned Tate Britain. The immediate location boasts green squares and is within walking distance of Westminster Abbey, the Palace of Westminster, Downing Street and St James' Park.

Abell & Cleland development comprises 206 one, two and three bedroom bespoke apartments, carefully designed to complement its iconic and grand location. It is made up of two strikingly modern separate buildings set within private landscaped grounds.

Abell House is the larger of the two buildings and upon arrival, residents and visitors will walk into a dramatic entrance lobby, opulently designed and filled with light. Triple-height glass panels allow the light to stream in, whilst contemporary glass chandeliers suspended from the ceiling add to the ambience.

Its striking design is complemented with bespoke interiors offering a new standard of exclusive living. Each apartment has been thoughtfully designed to reflect its prestigious location and features the finest luxury fittings, creating an elegant and warm living space. The use of stone, metal, marble, wood and oak features contribute to the opulent feel of the apartments.

Individually designed and high-specification kitchens fuse fine contemporary lines, modern design and outstanding outlook. Composite stone worktops, limestone or parquet flooring and top-of-the-range Kuppersbusch appliances form a fittingly rarefied and beautifully functional hub for home life.

The bathrooms are finished in marble and limestone and fitted with fine white porcelain suites. High-specification fixtures, including wiring for television in the en suite master bathrooms, recessed LED down lighters and contemporary polished chrome fittings, make for an atmosphere that is calm and relaxing.

Whilst exquisitely designed light-filled bedrooms are the perfect escape from the hustle bustle of city life with plush, soft carpeting and full height oak doors ensuring the harmonious and tranquil ambience is maintained. Some apartments in Abell House come with a dedicated dressing room between the luxurious master bedroom and marble bathroom.

A luxury leisure facility is available to all residents of Abell & Cleland comprising a full-featured gymnasium, pool, sauna and changing facilities. Residents will also be able to conveniently undertake international business by using a fully-equipped business suite at their disposal day and night, situated in Cleland House. A dedicated 24 hour concierge service will attend to residents' needs, whilst residents can also benefit from secure car parking facilities.

As well as being located on the doorstep of some of the most iconic landmarks in the country, Abell & Cleland is also close to intimate public parks, cafes, restaurants and shops. Residents can also enjoy taking a stroll to one of the many Michelin Star restaurants close by, with Westminster being home to no less than 36 highly acclaimed restaurants, including Roux at parliament Square and The Cinnamon Club.

Residents can also find an extensive range of luxury retail brands close by and can enjoy shopping at world renowned Saville Row, Burberry at Bond Street, Burlington Arcade, Old Bond Street and Chopard, New Bond Street.

Abell & Cleland is also in close proximity to some of the best schools and universities in the city, including, Westminster School, Knightsbridge School, Imperial College London and University College London (UCL).

Westminster is at the hub of London's local and national transport network. Nearby Westminster Underground Station provides access to Circle, District and Jubilee lines, and within the borough of Westminster, virtually all of London's 11 Underground lines may be accessed - as well as the river bus service at Westminster, Embankment and Millbank piers. The service, which runs along the River Thames every 20 minutes during peak hours, connects London Bridge, the famous London Eye and Tower station.

Deputy Leader of Westminster City Council, Cllr Robert Davis joined Berkeley Homes founder, Tony Pidgley, and architect Deborah Saunt yesterday to 'top out' the final floor of Berkeley's prime new development, Abell & Cleland.

The 'topping out' at Abell House - the first of two buildings - was attended by 40 key officials from Westminster, the Greater London Authority and Community Working Group. They were able to see first-hand the beginnings of the beautiful structure in a historical setting, close to the Houses of Parliament.

Due to complete in 2016, Abell & Cleland is set to deliver:

275 new homes; over 50% of Cleland House is affordable
Over £2million in community payments
500 jobs on site alongside a programme of visits for local schools.
Cllr Robert Davis, Deputy Leader of Westminster City Council worked closely on the project to champion quality architecture and public realm. Speaking at the ceremony, he said:

"Abell & Cleland is a fantastic example of how modern architecture can not only complement but enhance the existing environment within central London, while creating a new residential quarter for the city."

Berkeley is investing over £1million in public realm for the local area. Some of this will be spent on a shared road surface to encourage cars to slow down and lining the pavements with trees.

Tony Pidgley, Chairman of the Berkeley Group said:

"It takes a lot for a building like this to come together. It needs a partnership between the community, the council, developer and local businesses. We have been delighted to work with Westminster City Council and Dolphin Square Foundation to deliver this."

The ancient tradition of topping out on new building projects is seen as a good omen for the building and for those involved in the development. It is also a way of thanking the workforce and all those who have played their part in the construction.

At its peak over 500 people will be employed on site at Abell & Cleland at any one time. It has also provided 14 jobs for the unemployed through Berkeley's Job Creation Programme.
