68 luxury apartments are being made available for families displaced by the horrific Grenfell Tower fire.

The flats, which were on the market for £1.6 million, in the Kensington Row scheme will be given to those families who were able to make it out alive from the blaze which left 79 people dead.

The homes, situated 1.5 miles south of Grenfell in the most affluent area of the Kensington area, have been purchased by the Corporation of London and will soon become part of their social housing plan.

According to The Guardian, the complex has a 24-hour concierge, swimming pool, sauna, spa, and private cinema however it is unlikely that these facilities will be made available to the fire victims.

Tony Pidgley, chairman of the Berkeley Group, who built the homes, said:

We’ve got to start by finding each of them a home.

Somewhere safe and supportive, close to their friends and the places they know, so they can start to rebuild their lives. We will work night and day to get these homes ready.

Interestingly, the decision to house those who lost their own homes most likely as a result of negligence, comes just days after Jeremy Corbyn called for some of the most affluent apartments in the area to be made available for the dispositioned.

He said:

Kensington is a tale of two cities. The south part of Kensington is incredibly wealthy, it’s the wealthiest part of the whole country.

The ward where this fire took place is, I think, the poorest ward in the whole country and properties must be found – requisitioned if necessary – to make sure those residents do get re-housed locally.

Hopefully the Berkeley Group stick to their promises and those affected by this unforgiving and horrific fire will fine some comfort in their new homes and be able to get back on their feet as soon as possible.
