Horizon Ilford | Development Progress Update
Horizon Ilford is just a few steps away from completion, and so Anna Langford, Global Operations Director in London took a tour of the site to check on progress.
The units are finished internally and are looking good. They’re spacious with high ceilings, and so they feel quite airy and bright, and finished to a great standard. Although the communal areas are still being finished off, I think the communal garden in the centre will look really nice and the access straight into new Crossrail station will be a great benefit.
Horizon is a landmark new residential tower minutes from cosmopolitan Ilford’s future Crossrail station, with its striking design inspired by Ilford’s photography and telecommunications-industry heritage, and is situated only seventeen minutes away from London’s Liverpool Street by train.
Ilford is a vibrant and multicultural neighbourhood with a strong local community that attracts many residents to the area. There are a number of coffee shops and dining outlets offering a wide range of international cuisine also scattered around the town centre. The High Road is home to The Exchange shopping mall which contains 80 stores from a number of leading retail brands, as wells as cafés and independent boutiques whilst major supermarkets are all within walking distance of the development.
Ilford station is set for a 11 million upgrade that will improve its accessibility and modernise its facilities. Seven King’s station will also undergo a similar makeover preparation for taking its place along the route of the UK’s Crossrail.
