St. James, London’s leading residential developer, unveiled its OneSE8 project during an exhibition held from 1 to 3 April at the Hilton Hotel. The event was to provide Singaporean investors the opportunity to invest in one of the world’s most famous residential markets.

Situated in central London, OneSE8 comprises one- and two-bedroom apartments and a collection of luxury City Suites. To meet the demands of 21st century living, the development offers high-quality fittings and fixtures throughout, as well as a gymnasium, 24-metre pool and 24-hour concierge.

Designed by Fraser Brown Mackenna Architects, OneSE8’s The Manhattan Apartments provides open plan living areas which have been specifically designed with large windows to maximise space and light. Its kitchens offer A-rated appliances and the bathrooms harmoniously blend simple white sanitary ware with chic chrome fittings.

OneSE8 is located in London’s Underground Zone 2 and is close to direct transport links to central London’s financial and retail districts, such as the City of London and Canary Wharf.

“St James is delighted to unveil the OneSE8 development to the Singapore market. OneSE8 provides international buyers with an outstanding investment opportunity through the combination of high-specification appliances, innovative and contemporary design and competitive starting prices. The development has already achieved outstanding rental income and the potential of long-term capital growth,” said Paul Hopkins, Managing Director at St. James.

“St James has a proven track record of delivering highly attractive properties to Singaporean investors with the Silkworks and Silvermill projects in nearby Lewisham generating a yield of six percent for investors.”

The Manhattan Apartments’ investors will also benefit from Lewisham’s ongoing revival, which includes the £250 million Lewisham Gateway Development. The development will optimise the area’s infrastructure through the reconnection of the area between the High Street and the train and the DLR stations.

The investors can also capitalise on the expected robust rental demand and yields for the apartments.

Prices for the OneSE8 apartments start from £167,995, with a guaranteed rental yield of six percent for the first year.
