During the current lockdown, many of us find ourselves juggling working from home, whilst also looking after children. Daily challenges are drawn into focus and families are reflecting on what life post-lockdown could look like to help us optimise the combination of home working-life and still providing children with an environment where they can thrive securely. In fact, it’s no wonder that Joe Wick’s ‘PE with Joe’ at 9am everyday gets an average 500,000 views each morning. And as of 30th April, the BBC’s educational App, Bitesize has received 3 million hits from frazzled parents.
Aspen at Consort Place has given deep consideration to these significant demands placed on families and as a result it is creating spaces within its newest development which can fulfil theses often unmet needs of parents and children at different stages of their lives.
From childcare worries being taken care of, to areas to study or places to safely mix with friends for older teens, and an outdoor space for little ones to burn some steam, Aspen at Consort Place offers a vertical village, with everything in one place. Post-pandemic, will we start seeing more future developments looking like this?
The vision of Aspen at Consort Place is to create a truly vibrant destination and inclusive community – where families, individuals and friends can enjoy this eclectic oasis. Aspen Family Club on the first floor will include a games room and an indoor and outdoor play area.
Outside, there will be an immaculately landscaped public realm with feature trees, a new square surrounded by a health centre, an education facility, a community hall, along with restaurant, bars, cafés plus all the amenities of the new Dorsett Hotel, to make it a truly dynamic destination.
And that all-important “me time” for parents has also been considered. The Dorsett Hotel is the perfect place to wind-down after a fitness workout or just a busy day. Residents can enjoy a handcrafted cocktail served in the rooftop bar, a meal in the restaurant, or just a coffee between meetings. For fitness and relaxation, the wellness centre with its gym, steam room, sauna and vitality pool, is the perfect place to unwind – all of which is just moments from the front door of their own apartment within the development.
Whether you are working, studying or playing, Aspen is designed with ease and comfort in mind. The Aspen Club will provide private dining and wine tasting room, screening room, sophisticated winter garden and areas in which to meet and host. This could be an ideal location for a children’s birthday party or a rendez-vous for a monthly book club or even a place to watch an important sports match with friends.
