Wallacea Living plans to open its first integrated retirement community in early 2026, with the development comprising 104 apartments and penthouses.

It has opened a show suite and apartment to offer a glimpse of the new development between Paddington Basin and Little Venice in London.

Onsite amenities will include a library, bar, restaurant, cinema, event space, and pool and spa. It will also offer an in-house care service, available if residents need additional support. Apartments will overlook gardens at West End Gate, offering views across the capital.

‘Our vision is to support people to live their later lives to the full, where they can own their own apartment within a beautiful development just a stone’s throw from central London. Residents will be part of a vibrant community with all they need on site, enabling them to spend more time doing the things they love,’ said Paul Morgan, co-founder and chief executive of Wallacea Living.

Wallacea Living’s creative director is Sue Timney, who is chair of the Chelsea Arts Club, professor and fellow of The Royal College of Art and a past president and visiting professor of the British Institute of Interior Design, and has worked with architecture and design practice Jestico + Whiles.

‘We are going further than creating just a new hotel, a club or even a dream apartment. We are creating a new lifestyle for this fresh and positive stage of life,’ said Timney. ‘I personally understand and love the idea of the independence that the decision to be an owner affords. Our families have grown and now it is our time to enjoy new activities, a community of friends, old and new, a range of activities and some luxury too. Residents will experience a new-found independence, surrounded by culture, creativity and friendship.’

Wallacea Living’s vision is to support people to live their later lives to the full, by placing pro-active wellbeing at the heart of its communities.
