Openings in The City and London’s Docklands pave the way for 100 per cent growth in the capital in 2015.
Skyline Worldwide - a leading provider of corporate accommodation solutions in EMEA and LATAM regions - will open four new developments in London in early January, kickstarting aggressive plans to double its portfolio in the capital during 2015.
The first four new property openings are located around the capital’s two major financial centres - The City and London’s Docklands – and will add 141 units to the company’s portfolio in the city. All four apartments have been designed with the comfort and convenience of the business traveller in mind, providing both spacious accommodation and excellent value for money, and they are all located for an easy commute around the capital. From January, all of Skyline’s London properties (not just the new developments) will feature Sky, Nespresso coffee machines and high speed fibre optic internet where available.
A further two new developments in the City and one in Kensington will follow shortly bringing Skyline’s owner operated portfolio across London to over 300 units by summer 2015, almost double its current stock. The company manages more than 30,000 apartments in total through its Skyline Network, based in 84 cities in 26 countries throughout EMEA.
The new London openings are:
• Gazzano Apartments by Skyline: offers 10 two-bedroom apartments in Farrington. Generously sized and well equipped, the apartments offer stylish and contemporary accommodation, including beautifully designed kitchens and modern bathrooms, as well as excellent nearby transport links for business stays.

There has been a significant increase in the demand for serviced apartments in London and that’s why we are adopting such an aggressive expansion strategy for 2015 starting with the opening of these four brand new developments in just one month,” commented Managing Director Thiago Hahn.
