The high demand for new homes in Essex has led to the launch of the latest phase of 112 one and two bedroom luxury apartments at the popular Morello Quarter development ahead of schedule. Referred to as ‘the Docklands of Essex’, Weston Homes have also upgraded their signature high specification exclusively for the new homes in the Essex town of Basildon, which is undergoing a regeneration into one of the UK’s most modern towns as part of the £2 billion “More Basildon” Vision.

Wayne Mearns, Director at independent investment and property management consultants Belvoir Lettings, comments: “What makes Morello Quarter really stand out and help to attract a long waiting list of tenants is the fantastic interior specification and the vast amount of living space that you are getting for an apartment. With two billion pounds of regeneration underway in Basildon, this has really seen the area take off and will create thousands of jobs.
“We are seeing more and more people moving from London who are recognising the potential of the area, the quick and easy train links into the Capital and the quality of the new build apartments, which I believe has made Morello Quarter Basildon’s leading residential development.”
