Bankhouse is a collection of shared-ownership homes for the over 55s offering independent living with extra care amenities
Situated in on London’s South Bank in the London borough of Lambeth, the Bankhouse offers contemporary lateral living in the heart of London.
Located on the upper levels of a 14-storey tower, the 36 one and two-bedroom apartments provide a rare opportunity for Londoners to enjoy luxurious retirement living in the heart of the capital.
The launch is taking place on Saturday October 1 from 11am-3pm at The Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, situated adjacent to Bankhouse on the Albert Embankment, SE1.
Angela McKimmie, Head of Senior Living at marketing company Site Sales comments: “Retirees searching for a new home in a vibrant area with onsite facilities and extra care services are sure to find what they are looking for at Bankhouse – where they can live a wonderful retirement.
"The launch of this exciting development is eagerly anticipated and open to eligible London-borough residents. We have already received a lot of enquiries, with such demand we would urge those interested to register now and come along to our launch event when the first homes will be released for sale.”
Situated on Albert Embankment opposite the Tate Britain, Bankhouse enjoys stunning views of The River Thames to the Northwest and The Oval and The Shard towards the South and East.
An exclusive address that has been created with care, the development has been designed to offer luxurious living along with the kind of facilities and services you would expect to find in a boutique hotel.
Residents can relax and socialise with their neighbours in the many communal areas like the restaurant, licensed bar and club lounge or, for those warmer months, the delightful garden terrace.
There is also a range of support and care services from housekeeping to personal care, to an emergency call system in each home.
Bankhouse, when complete next Spring, will be a new addition to the London skyline, a modern tower with balconies to most apartments, and homes on the upper levels benefiting from magnificent uninterrupted views of the capital.
The homes, which have open-plan kitchen and living areas, come in six different layout options and range in size from 587 sq ft to 770 sq ft providing a choice of living accommodation. They feature underfloor heating and a mix of Karndean, ceramic tiles and carpeted flooring.
Each home has a separate utility/storage room. There are two lifts from each floor to the ground floor and communal areas.

Victoria Station, a short trip away, provides access to Sussex and Kent for days out away from the city. The Thames Clipper, from St George Wharf is a few minutes’ walk away and provides services up and down the river. Both Heathrow and Gatwick are under an hour away by public transport.
