Ruskin Walk is the first phase of the exciting new Albany Place development. Ideally located in the heart of Southwark in South London, Albany Place brings quality, contemporary and spacious living to one of London’s most up and coming areas. Close to the City and the West End, with excellent transport connections, outdoor spaces and a great range of local amenities, affordable Zone 1 living is closer than you think.
The ongoing regeneration of the Elephant & Castle area is exceptional.
£1.5 billion of investment is bringing thousands of new homes, a new pedestrianised town centre, plenty of retail space, five new open spaces and an integrated transport hub.
Within this, Albany Place is part of a complete redevelopment of the Burgess Park area. Over the next fifteen years, the neighbourhood will be transformed into one of the most exciting and vibrant new communities in central London, with new transport links, schools, healthcare and retail facilities. The area already boasts outstanding early years and primary schools, including New Walworth Academy, award-winning Michael Faraday primary school, Aylesbury early years centre and 1st place Children’s Centre.
The transformation is already underway. Burgess Terrace, next to Ruskin Walk, launches in 2013. And just down the road from Albany Place, the second phase of the regeneration programme is also underway.
Albany Place will set the standard for the new neighbourhood and become a benchmark for quality. Demand for these long-awaited new homes in this prime location is likely to be extremely high. Albany Place marks the beginning of a new chapter for South London – be a part of this new start. Destined to become one of Zone 1’s most sought after residential areas, the availability of apartments in Ruskin Walk is one of the most exciting investments in London.
