– Residents invited to contribute to a time capsule marking this historic occasion –

To celebrate the launch of Centrus at The Meads – the much-anticipated residential element of the £83 million regeneration of Farnborough Town centre – St Modwen Properties PLC is inviting the residents of Rushmoor Borough to an exclusive event. On Saturday 5th July, local residents will be able to secure their place in Farnborough’s history by contributing a piece of their personal story within the town to a time capsule that will be buried within the development later in the year for future generations to discover.

At 10am, Mayor of Rushmoor, Councillor Alan Ferrier will unveil the time capsule at the development’s sales and marketing suite, situated on Firgrove Road and St Modwen Properties will award the fantastic prize of [a hot air balloon ride for two] to the resident who provides the most interesting contribution.

Along with inputting to the time capsule, local residents of Rushmoor Borough will also receive an exclusive opportunity to be the first to view the high quality design and specification of the new apartments on offer at Centrus at The Meads ahead of the official launch on Saturday 12th July.

Centrus at The Meads is a contemporary development situated in the heart of Farnborough and will comprise a mix of 115 stylish one, two and three bedroom apartments. This exciting, sustainable residential development is being delivered as part of St Modwen Properties regeneration of Farnborough Town Centre which spans 14 acres and provides the local community with a thriving and cosmopolitan destination. Residents will benefit from a wealth of amenities on their doorstep including new shops, restaurants, a new Sainsbury store, a Travelodge Hotel, as well as leisure and entertainment facilities.

The apartments at the scheme will offer spacious, contemporary and highly-specified open-plan living; all will feature either glass and metal balconies or timber decked terraces along with extensive glazing that will provide modern homes filled with natural light. Layouts have been carefully considered with the two bedroom apartments featuring luxurious en-suites.

All apartments at the development will feature a superior specification which will feature contemporary Cuisine Schmidt kitchens with superior detailing including full height units with handle-free, high gloss doors. All kitchens will be complete with a full range of integrated Siemens and Electrolux appliances including a stainless steel oven and ceramic hob, telescopic glide extractor hood, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a choice of Walnut or Oak Amtico flooring.

Bathrooms and ensuites will include the latest sanitaryware from Kaldewei and Duravit, and will be complemented by a range of smart chrome fittings by Hansgrohe and Crosswater including a luxury Raindance shower. Furthermore, an integral mirrored bathroom cabinet, ceramic wall and floor tiles and a chrome-finish ladder-style heated towel rail will add the finishing touches.

The scheme will include residents parking and in addition, a bicycle storage.

A home at Centrus at The Meads is very well connected; situated at the centre of Farnborough it lays at the heart of a comprehensive transport network with Junction 4 of the M3 less than a mile away and with Guildford, Basingstoke town centres and Heathrow and Gatwick Airports all within easy reach. From nearby Farnborough Mainline Station, London Waterloo is under 40 minutes away making commuting into the city accessible.

Jon Hall, Residential Sales and Marketing Director for St Modwen Properties PLC said: “Farnborough is currently undergoing a significant renaissance and the homes on offer at Centrus at The Meads offer a lifestyle choice and will be the area’s premier address. That said, the apartments are very competitively priced and we anticipate a large amount of interest from purchasers who want to buy into the lifestyle on offer.

He continued: “Many developers talk about sustainability and investing in local communities; Centrus at The Meads is an exemplar development providing local residents with an opportunity to purchase high-quality housing with access to excellent amenities right on their doorstep. St Modwen Properties is committed to delivering the regeneration of Farnborough town centre and we are delighted to offer local residents, particularly first-time buyers, the very first opportunity to secure a home at this exceptional development.”
