Essential Living offers reassurance for Archway residents

Vantage Point, formally the Archway Tower, is the UK’s first build to rent development, a 17-storey purpose-designed residential scheme we have created only for rent. It contains 118 fully-sized, all-inclusive apartments all managed directly by us, along with a substantial amount of amenity space allowing people to work from home or dine with friends.

The building is a former office block designed in the 1960s that was previously occupied by the civil service. It was left vacant for many years and was acquired by us in 2013.

During the design phase and conversion of Archway Tower, fire safety was, and remains, of paramount importance. The building goes above and beyond all building regulations and is tested regularly to ensure it exceeds safety standards. It was last tested by the Fire Brigade at the end of 2016.

As with all our buildings, Vantage Point’s cladding is totally different from aluminium composite material (ACM) and was specifically chosen for its improved design integrity and fire retardant qualities.

Together with an enhanced mist suppression system, alarms, LED lighting and other protection systems, every apartment has an alarm in every room while the building is covered by CCTV and manned 24/7 by a residents’ team. We are happy to state that Vantage Point is fully compliant with all current safety standards and that there is absolutely no cause for concern.
