Set to welcome its first residents this summer, The Wullcombe will be located opposite Highcross Shopping Centre. Boasting a a shared rooftop terrace, with a wood-fired pizza oven, barbecue space and great views over the city; is this set to be the coolest place to live in Leicester?
As well as the shared rooftop space, renters who sign up for properties will be able to host a party in the building’s private dining room, relax in the library or entertain their mates in the cinema room or in The Perch, a welcoming shared living area for all residents.
Developers are keen that it is seen to be a place to work as well as relax, with the communal areas at The Wullcomb encouraging co-working. There will be a space where renters can work collaboratively or individually, benefitting from fast Wi-Fi, shared equipment and all other essentials needed to work from home.
Way of Life, the developers behind the project, are keen to confirm that whilst all apartments will benefit from luxurious private living and dining, the fabulous shared facilities are a key part of their commitment to providing more than just a place for people to live. Instead, The Wullcomb presents an environment where renters can step out of their flats to socialize, engage and enjoy getting to know their neighbours.
The development has been taking shape over the past 18 months and is now nearing completion, with the first apartments likely to be ready for rent by summer 2019. The five, seven, ten and twelve-storey blocks are joined together by a spacious and shared roof terrace, and in just a few steps you’ll be in the middle of Leicester’s main shopping areas and nightlife.
Rent will start from just £595/month with the apartments being a mix of thoughtfully designed studios, one-bed and two-bed accommodation. The development will feature 119 car parking spaces and secure bike storage as well as boasting a concierge service, on-site maintenance, cleaning and security. Renters also have the choice of furnished or unfurnished apartments.
Managing Director Sowgol Zarinchang explained that Way of Life were investing into the city for the long-term and were keen to become fully integrated into the community.
“We’re not a management platform that offers property, we are dedicated to providing a sense of community that the customer will experience throughout their stay with us.
“We view ourselves as part of the hospitality industry and so our professional customer relationship managers will be on site at all times to help our customers with anything they need.
“Leicester is a city that is vibrant, cultural, and always has something exciting going on. We are keen to partner up with local businesses wherever the opportunity arises and directly impact the community through a cultural programme including health and wellbeing events and cooking demos.”
