Vetro has been featured in the June edition of Designer Magazine in an article titled ‘City Living Post-COVID: Is London still Calling?’. Board Director and head of Land, Nicholas Mee, spoke to Anna Maria Casas about the project and the desire for city living in a post-pandemic era.
When asked about Vetro Nicholas explained that: “Rockwell’s vision for the underutilised site, which lay derelict for 10 years, was to design a scheme to transform the local area with a new, high quality, mixed-use development, marking Westferry as a destination in its own right. The 30-storey development will include a 400-bedroom hotel, and 68 timeless and elegant apartments with uninterrupted views overlooking Canary Wharf, the River Thames, the City and beyond.”
When questioned about the desire for city living post-pandemic, Nicholas explained:
“Rockwell is a true believer in London; it offers a unique opportunity for development owing to its status on the world stage as business and cultural melting pot.” And that “for many living in London, myself included, all the leisure, cultural, sporting, retail and lifestyle amenity on offer is perhaps now cherished even more having been deprived of much of it during a year of intermittent lockdowns”.
