This multi-million-pound development of luxury properties sits on the old Astoria Theatre site. 

Astoria Theatre was built in the 1930s in an Art Deco style, it had a few years of success in the 50s but it never really took off. 

The theatre was used as a bingo hall for 20 years before closing its doors for good in 1997 where it sat derelict, changing owners, for many years. 

It was finally demolished in 2018 when plans to build the ultra-luxe Rox development took off.

The building's exterior takes inspiration from the original Astoria Theatre (Zoopla)

Opening in the spring/summer of 2021 the contemporary and luxurious Rox development is made up of a number of town houses and high-spec apartments.


Developers state that Rox is 'single-handedly raising the bar' for development in the city. 

The building is opposite the fountains and lawns of Victoria Gardens - the building has taken inspiration from the Astoria theatre that sat here before it.

All of the homes have been individually designed to maximise on natural light and space. 

The grand entrance and communal areas of the property are described as having been 'meticulously planned and immaculately executed'. 

The epitome of modern living the development is described as offering "an innovative work-life balance in a social environment".

Residents amenities include a central atrium, communal café, yoga room and even a party/cinema space which they can book and there's even an office area.

There is a day concierge to meet and greet and this inclusive duplex even caters for pets with a ground floor washroom ideal for coming back from mucky walks. 

Built around its landscaped atrium the properties are accessed via a lift to all floors. 

The properties aim to make the most of their location boasting walls of windows and a balcony. 

The one and two-bedroom flats benefit from a stunning living space which has ambient lighting and parquet flooring concealing underfloor heating.

In the designer kitchen there are integrated appliances including a touch induction hob and dishwasher.

Taking inspiration from Manhattan the bathrooms have high quality fittings and bespoke mirrored cabinets with LED insets.

The bedrooms have all been decorated to a high standard and this is where you can find each apartment's balcony, ideal for an evening of romance.
