The site is located near to Canary Wharf, Stratford and central London, is just four miles from Stansted International Airport and is close a number of universities in East London and Greenwich.
Equinox comprises a mix of stunning one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all featuring a range of high-quality fixtures and fittings. The units range in price from £233,950 to £352,950 and offer new homeowners spacious living quarters in a highly desirable location.
The one-bedroom units comprise a range of apartments including Cusp (plot 61), Saturn (plot 49) and Axis (plots 79 & 88 – 90); whilst the two-bedroom units include Eclipse (plots 23, 24, 45 – 47, 56 – 58, 68, 69, 76 – 78, 85 – 87 and 95 & 96), Aries (plot 36), Jupiter (plots 18, 29, 40 & 62), Polar (plot 74), Pisces (plot 83 & 92) and Vernal (plot 84).

Ardmore Group is the main contractor on the Equinox project, whilst innovative design practice Stock Woolstencroft is the architect. RLT Engineering is the structural engineer on the project and CPC is the mechanical and electrical consultant.
Each of the units at Equinox comprises a spacious open-plan kitchen, with a living and dining area, a balcony and a hallway. The apartments also include a family bathroom – including a number of high quality finishes – and a master bedroom with built-in wardrobe.
All of the accommodation within the Equinox development also includes a video door entry system, a Zanussi Stainless steel electric oven and an integrated fridge/freezer. Additional features include energy efficient pendant lights, chrome heated towel radiators, low energy downlights and carpets.
New homeowners will also be pleased to know that every Equinox unit includes a ten year NHBC warranty.
In addition to the high level of luxurious features that Equinox boasts, a number of bespoke extras are also available to new owners for a selected number of plots. The bespoke extras allow buyers to tailor their new homes to meet their individual requirements, giving their apartments their own personal stamp.
Equinox is situated within one of the most dynamic quadrants of the capital and will soon benefit from a number of nearby schemes that are currently in place to improve transport and retail provisions. Poplar HARCA is completing a £100 million regeneration programme to transform Chrisp Street Market into a new food and shopping destination, whilst Crossrail is busy creating new transport links to Heathrow Airport.

SAV Systems is an established provider of energy efficient heating and ventilation solutions, specialising in low carbon technologies such as combined heat and power (CHP), district heating and energy-efficient decentralised heat recovery ventilation systems. SAV is also a leader in the supply of advanced commissioning solutions for hydronic systems.
Established since 1988, SAV prides itself on working closely with specifiers to ensure the right products are used to deliver the best solutions. The company gets involved from the early stages of a project, working closely with the rest of the team every step of the way to see it through to commissioning and handover.
For the Chrisp Street development, SAV supplied two LoadTracker CHP engines to produce a combined output of 30kWe of electrical power and 60kWth of heating – along with two 475 litre thermal storage vessels. The key feature of LoadTracker CHP is that it tracks the base electrical load of the building and modulates electrical output to match the building’s demands. This ensures that maximum use is made of onsite generated electricity, while minimising use of expensive mains electricity – thus reducing running costs and carbon emissions.
Within each apartment at Chrisp Street an SAV Series 3 FlatStation heat interface unit provides effective management of domestic hot water and space heating, ensuring hot water is always available at a consistent temperature. The Series 3 Flatstation was selected by Ardmore as this can also accommodate a hot water cylinder within the apartment.
