More than 14,000 new rental homes are under construction in London as developers seize on demand from people priced out of home ownership.
While singles and couples in the 20- to 40-year-old age bracket are the main takers, Moda, above, a scheme in Stratford designed by Richard Rogers’s architectural practice, is targeting families who want a longer tenancy than the standard 12-month contract. Rents range from £1,575 to £2,050 per calendar month and furniture packs can be purchased. Call 0345 683 8812.
Another family scheme being built in Deptford will provide 249 homes. Developer Essential Living says more than two thirds of the Creekside Wharf site will be given over to open space, plus there will be internal play areas, buggy storage, extra soundproofing, laundry rooms, rooftop grow gardens and communal terraces with barbecues and pizza ovens.
