The exciting new PinnPoint development by Annington in Uxbridge, is now home to its first residents. With half of its first phase of apartments already leased, despite launching less than two months ago, the development is beginning to form a close-knit community of young professionals, who work both in London and in the local Uxbridge area.
Located on the site of the former RAF Uxbridge in the London Borough of Hillingdon, PinnPoint will offer a smart collection of 207 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, for those looking to rent rather than buy.
Vivian Carvalho and Eduardo Russo, both 39, are some of the first residents to move in. Having previously lived in Wembley, the couple wanted to move closer to Eduardo’s technology job in Uxbridge. Now only a seven-minute electric scooter ride away from Eduardo’s office and able to spend lunchtimes together at home, the couple are saving money both on their rent and their commute, but haven’t sacrificed their quality of living, thanks to PinnPoint’s luxury accommodation.
All of the properties at PinnPoint feature open plan living areas, underfloor heating and Plug and Play broadband. This allows internet speeds of up to 300mbps from the day residents move in without the need to purchase any additional equipment, as well as no fixed term contracts or cancellation fees at the end of their tenancy. Small pets are welcome at the development and residents can also take advantage of both secure underground parking and cycle storage.
Vivian comments: “Renting was the ideal choice for us. We moved to England from Brazil in November 2017 and wanted to experience life in the UK without making the permanent investment and commitment that comes with buying a home. We used the lower deposit option offered by Annington, a simple solution that meant we were able to move into our flat without months of saving.”
Vivian continues: “The apartment is light and airy with a fantastic amount of space, perfect for me as I teach yoga remotely to my students in Brazil via Skype. The PinnPoint development as a whole has a really friendly community feel that has made us both feel really at home here.”
The outside space at the development is an ideal place for residents to relax in their free time, which will feature a landscaped podium garden and a play area for children to play safely outdoors. Not only does PinnPoint boast its own idyllic outside space, but also provides residents with access to a 40-acre public park which the River Pinn runs alongside. The wider St. Andrew’s Park development, which PinnPoint sits on, will offer all the necessary amenities for Annington’s new residents, including a primary school, a theatre, retail space and a GP surgery. The town of Uxbridge is also close by to the development, only a few minutes’ walk away, providing plenty of places to visit, eat and drink.
Another resident at the PinnPoint development, Carl, said: “Both Claire and I love our new flat in Bristol house because it’s super modern in the heart of Uxbridge. We love how quiet the area is - you can really relax when you get home from work. Having a helpful onsite management team really makes all the difference, especially in the first few days of moving in, we couldn’t work out how to use a few things and the team came straight up to assist.”
Adrian Needham, Rentals Director at Annington, comments: “We are delighted with the uptake of the apartments at PinnPoint so far. PinnPoint will be a true community, which we expect will continue to prove popular with young professionals like Eduardo and Vivian who are looking to rent rather than buy; impressed by the transport links and amount of green space on offer.”
The PinnPoint development is conveniently located for commuters, with central London accessible in under an hour via both Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines and the Underground less than 10 minutes’ walk from the development.
