Construction began in October 2021 and is expected to be completed by Q4 2024, paving the way for Graphite Square to come to fruition amongst London’s greatest projects. The project marks the second development in the UK for Third.i since its 2018 debut project on York Road in Battersea, which is due for completion next month as it seeks to invest around London in residential, commercial and retirement projects.
“It is simply an amazing achievement to have a project of this calibre launch internationally and gain as much traction as it already has with a great sales result,” said Third.i’s Co-Founder and Director of Sales Marketing, Luke Berry.
“To officially kick start construction back in October last year on this amazing project is truly incredible and a testament to our hardworking team. We had been looking for exciting opportunities in London for quite some time and Graphite Square is the perfect embodiment of our belief in creating better places to live, work and play. I can’t wait to see the project come to life.
“Third.i instantly fell in love with the architecture and place making of the project, seeing it having an ageless appeal that will become a legacy project and one we can all be proud of. We’ve had incredible interest from both domestic and international buyers, particularly from Singapore, China and Asia since launching into international markets earlier this year before our marketing campaign had even begun.”
