In an age of mass consumerism, it’s not easy to get your hands on the latest, hottest products.
The good news is that, thanks to a host of cheap labour, you can get a taste of what’s in store for you.
Here are five of the most exciting developments in the industry.
The Caulfield Caves and Waterfall Apartments: This Victorian development, which was completed in 2017, aims to create a high-end housing estate that’s as close to nature as possible.
“We are working to transform the Caulfields into a luxury community of living, breathing and working space,” said the developer, who have already secured the consent of the Crows.
The project aims to transform these two Victorian caves into a “living museum” and “environmental park” with an urban setting.
It will feature four levels, with terraces and gardens as well as the area’s original forest.
The developer also wants to create an “urban sanctuary” for the community, which they hope will be the “first of its kind in the UK”.
The development is being built on a site that has previously been occupied by the former Caulfords.
The property is currently being sold by the Crown Estate.
The Rooker, Newcastle, Newcastle Upon Tyne: The developer behind this “living dream” of a luxury apartment complex has just received planning permission to build on the site of a former Cansons factory.
The proposed project will have up to five towers and a park attached to each, as well a restaurant and bar.
The tower will have an outdoor terrace, with seating for up to 30 people, as will the bar area, with its terraces.
The area is set to be home to a cafe, a spa and a fitness centre.
The building will also feature a large indoor park.
The Queen Elizabeth II: The new Queen Elizabeth Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, is the latest development in the area that’s being developed by the developer behind the Cakes Tower, which is currently under construction.
“The Queen Elizabeth Tower project is a major project that will redefine the Queen Elizabeth Plaza,” said developer Simon Taylor.
“A vast space will open up for residents to enjoy and explore as the tower becomes a community hub and dining area for the entire area.”
The project is being developed on a 30-acre site currently owned by the National Trust, with a proposed retail precinct, office, shopping and residential development planned.
The new tower will feature a total of five towers, each with a terrace and garden.
The first tower is set for completion by 2021.
The Soho Gardens: A developer has recently submitted plans to build a luxury development in Newcastle upon Westmeath, with the aim of turning the former Soho Estate into a community centre, with cafes, an indoor gymnasium and the garden being part of the design.
The plans call for a 12-storey, seven-storeys-high, 1,500-seat, mixed-use development, with mixed use areas, a cinema, gym, and a cafe.
The scheme will be completed in 2020.
The Old Trafford Stadium: Manchester United have already revealed plans for a high rise residential tower at the Old Trafford stadium, with plans to turn the area into a sports precinct, restaurant and entertainment hub.
The site is currently home to the former Old Trafford Football Club.
A new tower is currently planned for the site.
