10 George Street, Vertus’ first build-to-rent (BtR) scheme in Canary Wharf, has won Gold for the Best BtR Project at this year’s What House? Awards.
10 George Street won this much-desired award for the BtR sector, in the Awards’ 40th year. This major achievement comes in the same month Vertus launched its second BtR building, 8 Water Street.
The What House? Awards are often known as the Oscars of the UK’s housebuilding sector and they recognise the very best new homes across the country. There were 21 award categories this year, commemorating everything from the Best BtR Project to the Best Exterior Design and the Best Retirement Development. Due to the current social-distancing restrictions, this was the first year the awards ceremony was held digitally by comedian Romesh Ranganathan and What House? host Rupert Bates.
Alastair Mullens, Head of Vertus, comments, “For 10 George Street to be awarded Gold for the Best BtR Project at this year’s What House? Awards is a fantastic achievement. We welcomed our first residents to the building in February this year, just before the first lockdown, so we’re ecstatic that 2020 has ended with such great a win. Congratulations to all the team for their hard work!”
10 George Street was designed by GRID Architects and comprises 327 apartments. The scheme creates a new benchmark for build-to-rent living, with residents’ needs at the heart of every consideration from the design to the maintenance of the building. Residents can sign a flexible tenancy to suit their own needs, with varied deposit options available.
The apartments’ interiors are in an open-plan format to accentuate natural light throughout, with high-specification appliances. The homes are fully-furnished by Camerich and residents have autonomy over interior decorations. The first-class amenities at the development include Vertus Plus, a private residents’ space which has been furnished by interior design house Angel O’Donnell.
Vertus Plus provides a lounge, private event space and bar area with automatic wine dispensers. There is additionally an expansive south-facing garden terrace, which offers panoramic views across the South Dock and wider Canary Wharf skyline. The areas are available for private bookings for residents who would like to host events. There are additionally two hotel-style Guest Suites in the building which can be booked for visiting family or friends to use. The amenities are completed with a private gym studio run by wellness experts Antidote, part of the Health Concierge Group.
The amazing Vertus Plus amenity spaces, combined with the flexible tenancy and deposit options, swift management solutions, community spirit and 24/7 Concierge team meant that the judges described 10 George Street as a worthy Gold winner.
Apartments at 10 George Street are available from £2,080 and at 8 Water Street from £1,950. For more information about Vertus or 10 George Street and 8 Water Street visit
