Merano Residences

March 18, 2021In Blog, Lifestyle

Merano Residences is one of the finest developments on the River Thames. A collection of 40 private residences designed by one of the world’s most celebrated architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. A truly unique place to live, that combines the highest levels of privacy and comfort with one of the most famous views in the world.

Merano Residences, an Overview

With only 40 exclusive apartments decadently spread across three towers, the Merano Residences boasts some of the most intimate living space in the largest regeneration of a Central London area since the development of Canary Wharf and the Docklands.

The apartments, made up of one, two and three bedroom flats and a selection of duplex and triplex penthouse apartments offer a variety of layouts while maximising the use of space and natural light.

A History of Merano Residences

Merano Residences reflects a sea change in London living and architecture. Since medieval times The River Thames has understandably been regarded as the major method of industrial transportation and as a result its banks have always been occupied by industrial and commercial buildings. Uninspiring to say the least, the Albert Embankment an area which stretches for approximately one mile between Lambeth Bridge down to Vauxhall Bridge is now part undergoing one of the most exciting and extensive riverside developments of recent years.

Previously the site of Merano Residences was known as Eastbury House, a drab, 1960’s government building. Eastbury House is perhaps representative of a less affluent, forward thinking London that was going through its own period of uncertainty. The Swinging 60’s that London was so famous for never quite swung in Lambeth, according to former Prime-Minister John Major. One can easily image a young, grey suited civil servant sitting at his desk in Eastbury House looking out over the Thames towards the West End and realising that perhaps life was happening elsewhere.

However, life is now happening right here, in Vauxhall, in Nine Elms and residents of the Merano will only need to step out from the impressive foyer to realise that they are part of the newest, upcoming area of London.

Touted as London’s freshest hub for culture and commerce, Nine Elms will be a mix of private residences, commercial premises and cultural venues. To the rear of the Merano development, world famous artist, Damian Hirst is launching a new gallery, housing both his own works and a personal art collection to rival Charles Saatchi.

Living In Merano Residences

The Merano is likely to appeal to those who require a discreet yet central and secure home. Those who live and work full-time in London or who are seeking a contemporary riverside home in one of the World’s leading capitals will also be attracted to the development. The global elite are also looking towards London as a central hub, with its international airports, financial centre and world class cultural venues.

Merano Residences & Beyond

Given the central location of the Merano Residence, it would be easy to list the sights and attractions such as Tate Britain, (which the Merano is opposite), the world famous South Bank, shopping on Sloane Square etc. All of which are a pleasant walk, short bike ride or even shorter taxi ride away. Vauxhall transport hub is also just a few minute’s walk way providing easy access to all of London’s central districts.
