it simply means that by creating a whole building of flats with better than average kitchens and bathrooms you can call the development'' luxury'' or ''executive'' and sell what are really £100k flats for £180k (in most of Uk or about 50% more in the London area)

....and these days it makes no difference if the area they're in is shabby and the kind of place you wouldn't want to leave your car....

This part of the housing market is guaranteed to crash even if the market for conventional homes stagnates.

Centres of Leeds and Manchester are the main places where this rubbish is being built....

As other posters have suggested many of these will become social housing and in Leeds where tenants are hard to come by they're now trying to let them to students!

All the ''young professionals'' i know with this kind of money who like the edginess of city life live in trendy places in conventional homes a couple of miles away from the city centres ...where there are plenty of amenities....eg Chorlton/Didsbury in Manchester or Roundhay/Chapel Allerton in Leeds...and before anyone says these are expensive areas, terraced houses there are only a bit dearer than inner-city flats and maybe half the price if you base the price on floor area.........

Stylish Living

Your quilted toilet paper will not clash with your cellulite-ridden, stressed-out, debt-stained, 60-hours-a-week overworked a*se

Apartment

Drug dealers next door

Luxury Apartment

The drug dealers next door have a degree in chemistry

Modern Day Living

Living in a very small (aka deceptively spacious) house/flat, does not matter as you are always in work to pay the mortgage.

Modern Living seems to involve having a kitchen in your lounge.

Yeah, well who cooks at home anymore? Everyone eats out. :unsure:

Stylish Living - The flat you sacrificed your mental well being for will soon resemble a Sty, as you won't be able to afford to ever go out again.

Luxury Apartments - You will always be Apart from your family trying to pay the f**ing mortgage.

Modern Day Living - Living Death more like, at least you're on the snake ladder though eh?

Stylish Living – They're trying to distract you from how small it is

Luxary Appartments (Whats the difference between an appartment and a luxary appartment) – They're trying to distract you from how overpriced it is

Modern Day Living – They're trying to distract you from the fact that it's not really what you want

Stylish Living - its living but not as we know it. You'll have a wonderfully minimalist appartment with no room for any personal possesions, but thats ok as you can't afford them on the mortgage repayments.

Luxury Appartments - it has an equal (or greater) number of toilets per bedroom. Also indicative if excessive service charges.

Modern Day Living - compact, bijou, small, tiny, no storage space, overlooking carpark, no sound insulation, noisy neighbours, about to sell rest of flats to housing association,

Stylish Living: I usually associate this with property developer ads featuring lantern jawed (obviously gay) male models and attractive (but anorexic) female models, all smiling inanely or laughing in a very fake manner. The main message they seem to convey is "boy have I taken my medication today. And then some!"

Luxary Appartments (Whats the difference between an appartment and a luxary appartment): Gold coloured light fittings mostly. (Pick 'em up at Screwfix and install them yourself, hey presto, you've got yourself a luxury apartment.) In fact, for the true to life sensation of owning a luxury apartment (without all the time and trouble of moving) simply retire to the bathroom (ensuite naturally) and begin the careful process of flushing £20 notes down the loo.

Modern Day Living: City centre rabbit hutch with glorious views of seedy prostitutes and their "clients", loud, drunken oafs fighting and/or puking at 2.00 AM on a Sunday morning and an increasing sense of personal alienation leading to mild mental illness.

We had the thread the other day about the builders having been busy in London. But I didn't realise that they had been building flats in Parliament square and Downing street.
