Gravity launches fifth property in Reading
The portfolio expands to the UK’s very own Silicon Valley
Gravity Co, the London based co-living & PRS brand focused on community, flexibility, wellbeing and professional growth is excited to announce the launch of its fifth property this summer in the epicentre of one of the UK’s most thriving tech hubs, Reading.
‘Gravity Royal Heights’ is a newly developed property and home to 53 brand new studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as four penthouse apartments, five floors up that boast incredible views over the historic market town.
Each apartment has been designed with an open-planned, contemporary style, and comes fully furnished with high quality furnishings and built-in, modern, high-spec appliances including a Siemens washing machine, dishwasher, fridge freezer and electric hobs and oven.
With energy prices on the rise, Gravity residents (we call them members) need not worry as utility bills are included in the monthly rent which starts from as little as £1,100.
Every member in Reading will also have their own login to the Gravity app where they’ll find 24/7 wellbeing support, access to key Gravity contacts and on-demand cleaning services. Members will also have access to Gravity’s partner network as well as over 700 discounts, all at the touch of a button. What’s more, through the Gravity app, members will be instantly connected to the thriving Gravity community – over 200 live-in members across four existing London properties and more than 300 social members.
Located in the heart of Reading, in one of the town’s most sought after postcodes RG1, Gravity Royal Heights is just a short 10-minute walk to Reading station (perfect for London commuters) and less than a 5-minute walk to the thriving town centre where locals are spoilt for choice for cafes, bars, shops, restaurants and gyms.
Referred to as the Silicon Valley of the UK, Reading has become a mecca for technology and is home to some of the world’s largest tech brands including Visa, Ericsson, Huawei, Oracle and Virgin Media. With many offices close by (Visa being less than a minutes' walk from the property), Gravity will work alongside resident companies, not only to provide accommodation to staff living locally, but also to support with corporate relocation. Gravity’s hassle-free living experience can help fast growing companies attract talent in today's highly competitive environment by providing best-in-class accommodation and taking care of all the typical pain points faced by young professionals who need to relocate.
Well known in the capital as a destination for entrepreneurs, Gravity will also support the numerous start-ups that have made Reading their home.
Riccardo Tessaro, Co-Founder and CEO of Gravity says “Technology is a big part of our DNA at Gravity which is why we want to be where tech is thriving. As more and more companies base themselves out of Reading, there are some exciting opportunities to work with developments such as Green Park Business Park and Thames Valley Park which we know we can provide a lot of support to.’
Susanna Rock, Co-Founder and CIO of Gravity continues “We want to introduce Reading to a new way to live. At Gravity, we’re much more than just rental accommodation. With a community-focused approach that has multiple layers to it, we’re the ideal living solution for those moving into the area, especially for those who need to relocate for work. When you’re new to an area, it can be quite daunting, but Gravity really focuses on creating a community that is ready to both welcome and support as much as they can.”
Gravity Royal Heights is the first in a two-phase development plan. With further properties to be added, the development will total over 90 units on completion.
