Co-living brand opens third site in twelve months following outstanding uptake at Harrow and Earlsfield.
Folk, the co-living brand on a mission to set a new standard for renting, is launching its third site in the capital, Florence Dock, in Battersea.
Florence Dock, which already has a waiting list of 2000 people, is expected to be completed in April and open for renters to move in from June, and is located riverside in SW11, just a ten-minute walk from both Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Town Stations. The building will feature multiple roof terraces with views of London, a huge co-working space, high spec community kitchens, a gym, cinema room, gaming room, lounge and on-site bar for residents to enjoy. The building is the third in Folk’s co-living portfolio in the capital, and has been cleverly designed around the brand’s key pillars of community and connection, encouraging social interaction and the formation of new friendships and relationships.
Folk has conducted extensive research with renters and taken learnings from the brand’s first co-living spaces in Harrow and Earlsfield to design its Battersea building. Folk is continuing to disrupt the rental market by eradicating the traditional pain-points tenants face such as run-down accommodation, lack of outdoor or working-from-home space and rising cost of bills. Particularly attractive for London renters is the value the spaces provide – with the £1,695 per calendar month Studio price not only including access to all events and communal areas including gym, cinema and co-working space, but also covering all bills, removing the worry of rising costs which many are facing in the current climate.
Folk’s Florence Dock in Battersea is designed to impress: the building has 270 beautifully designed private studios and thoughtfully designed shared spaces for residents to come together and cook, enjoy social events, work-out and relax.
Paul Naylor, FOLK General Manager says, “The launch of Florence Dock in Battersea is an exciting next step in Folk’s journey as we continue to offer hassle-free co-living in London. As our brand has grown rapidly over the past year, we’ve been able to hone our offering, take all the best bits of co-living and combine them with state-of-the-art design and innovative technology to launch Florence Dock. We’ve balanced the indoor and outdoor spaces perfectly by working with architects and positioning the building riverside, and we are really excited for our first residents to sign up and move in!”
