by Rose Dykins
Set to open on October 1, AKA West End is housed in a
converted 1920s townhouse and comprises nine residences – a combination of
studios and one- and two- bedroom apartments. There will also be a two-bedroom
“Mews House” with a study and a private garage. The minimum stay for AKA West
End is 30 days. “We’re going to open a ‘wow’ boutique property,” says Steve Korman,
founder of Korman Communities. The residences will have bespoke
furniture, kitchens with grey lacquer cabinets, charcoal caesarstone
countertops and stainless steel appliances, marble baths and sumptuous linens.
Each suite will have different décor and artwork, and there is one suite per
floor, accessible via a glass lift.
Amenities include washer-dryers, free WiFi, Sky TV and local calls, air
conditioning and Asprey toiletries. A general manager and full-time housekeeper
will be on hand. 5 Bentinick Street; tel
