The Lock, Swindon

Project Description

Completed Residential Development


Conveniently located in very close proximity to the main shopping and office districts of Swindon’s town centre. The transformation of The Lock has resulted in a landmark collection of new apartments, designed for contemporary living.

The property comprises a detached, circa 29,000sq ft, seven storey office building of concrete construction. Previously occupied as a business centre the buildings’ potential was not being maximised. The property will be converted under Permitted development rights to 44 units.

As well as the excellent retail facilities on offer, Swindon has been a commuter-centric town since the 19th century and has positioned itself as one of the best strategic locations in the country. The Lock continues to build-on Swindon’s reputation as a transport-centric area as it is close to a busy commuter hub, Swindon Railway Station, that offers tenants easy access to London Paddington and the South-West.

With electrification of the rail line, Swindon will become a 45-minute commute to London, opening up an array of employment options to the town and providing a boost to the economic-climate. The electrification of the rail-line will soon lead to the increase of house prices in the area; in short, The Lock and the surrounding township is awash with excellent amenities and convenient transport links for tenants and homeowners.

You can purchase an apartment in The Lock with only a 5% deposit. Take advantage of the Government’s Help To Buy scheme which aims to help buyers who have a 5% deposit. The government will lend eligible buyers up to 20% of the value of their new build Help To Buy home via an equity loan
