X1 has appointed Forrest as main contractor for their fifth flagship residential scheme together.

X1 Chatham Waters, which is part of a wider £650 million luxury masterplan by Peel Land and Property, will overlook the historic Chatham Docks in a prime waterfront location just 45 minutes from central London by train.

The 199 luxury apartment scheme has a development value of £57 million and will raise the bar for residential accommodation in the area. Three-bedroom penthouse apartments will boast exceptionally large wrap around balconies, dual aspect garden terrace apartments will feature private green spaces, three-bedroom apartments have two balconies, and one and two-bedroom apartments will include exceptionally large glazed balconies.

Designed by DK-Architects, residents will have access to a large private gym, a double-height concierge atrium, an exclusive private residents’ courtyard garden overlooking the docks and secure internal private car parking.

Shaun Jones, construction director at Forrest said, “We are excited to be continuing our ongoing relationship with X1 by starting work on another significant open market apartment scheme and are currently working closely with the local supply chain to provide opportunities for the network of local businesses in the area”.

Melissa Green, operations and regional director at X1, said: “The local area is perfect for young renters. The wider master plan will see a unique marina destination created, with tenants benefiting from the tranquility of waterside living while also being within commuting distance of central London”.

Andy Philips, commercial director at Knight Knox, added: “X1 Chatham Waters is a fantastic development which is sure to be extremely popular. Aside from the stunning waterfront location, the apartments are on average considerably larger than those at other nearby developments and, in most cases, actually in excess of the national space standards.”

Forrest completed X1 Eastbank in 2016 and is currently nearing completion on X1 The Plaza and X1 The Gateway, and on site with X1 The Landmark.
