Vonder acquires former SKY HQ for co-living project (GB)

Vonder has launched its latest PRS development, Vonder Skies. The first phase will consist of a 127-apartments in the heart of Brentford with over 50% of the properties already pre-let. The second phase, which will launch in spring 2021, will add a further 144 apartments to the complex. With over €1.5bn assets under management across Europe, Vonder Skies joins the brand’s co-living portfolio in key cities including Berlin, Warsaw and London. Located on Great West Road in the town of Brentford, Vonder Skies comprises over 100,000ft² of residential development spanning five floors and includes 3,550ft² of amenities and 12,270ft² courtyards. Formerly the Sky TV Headquarters, the building has been converted and tailor-made for Vonder to provide a range of properties, from studios to one-bedroom and two-bedroom flats. All 271 apartments come fully furnished with modern fixtures and fittings, designed to create a contemporary look and feel.


Commenting on the opening of Vonder Skies, Tomer Bercoviz, CEO of Vonder, said: “Our approach at Vonder is to create a safe community for like-minded individuals finding their feet in a new city. Vonder Skies is our latest development to bring to the market and we are excited to continue to grow our portfolio by adding key developments to our ecosystem of co-living homes at achievable prices.”


As one of the fastest-growing boroughs in London’s Zone 4, Brentford provides the ideal solution to those who want to live in a safe and upcoming area within easy reach of the West End. Located by Brentford’s main station, commuters can also access National Rail Services from the adjoining Syon Lane Station and get to the capital in just 35 minutes via London Waterloo. Vonder Skies is also within a 20-minute drive to Heathrow airport.


Tomer Bercoviz, CEO of Vonder, added: “We are a consumer brand, and our research-led approach means we have been able to gain a greater understanding of what our Vonderers are looking for when searching for a new home, and where they want to be. After the great success of our Vonder Village site with 177 apartments, just a 5-minute walk away from Vonder Skies, it was clear to us that Brentford is a key suburban town in West London. It is very appealing for those wanting to be able to access high street amenities, but also be in great proximity to the city centre where rent prices are over three times higher.”
