(openPR) - The 150 million euro new residential development combines traditional English architecture and lifestyle with a special care for the environment and the facilities provided to its residents.

Bucharest – Clinceni, Romania, October 19, 2007 - Today Helios Development SRL publicly introduced the
English Village project, the first residential compound in Clinceni and one of the largest in Western Bucharest.

Her Majesty’s Ambassador of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to Bucharest, Mr. Robin Barnett, was the guest of honour for the groundbreaking ceremony, together with county and local officials: Mr. Marian Gustil, Vice-Mayor of Clinceni and Mr. Nicolae Jecu, the Prefect of Ilfov County.

On the occasion, His Excellency, the Ambassador, and the Vice-Mayor of Clinceni planted an English oak tree, a symbol of Britain’s legendary forests and wonderful natural environment.
"I am delighted to see a new investment bringing a piece of Britain to the outskirts of Bucharest, as well as adding to our existing bilateral investment of over 4.5bn Euros. The English village will bring to Romania not only key elements of our traditional lifestyle but also the concept of environmentally friendly "green" residential development. This model is particularly relevant for Bucharest and its surroundings where the green space has been drastically cut down in the last 15 years,” the Ambassador stated.
“The English Village project represents an important development for the Clinceni community and it adds to our current local investments which include the modernization of all main village roads, the centralized sewage systems and filtering station for the village, the renovation of the school and the construction of a new kindergarten, a new football field and sports facility, as well as a new Local Council building” the Vice-Mayor of Clinceni, Mr. Madrian Gustil, has stated.

The English Village project will be built over a 5 year period, on a total area of 24 hectares and will comprise 710 house units.

The first phase of development will cover a total area of 3.8 hectares and will include: 10 detached houses, 30 semi-detached and 70 apartments with 1 and 2 bedrooms and penthouses. The three level apartment buildings resembling classic English mansion houses will harmoniously blend in with the overall design.

This first phase of the English Village will be completed by February 2009 and will comprise numerous facilities and services to ensure convenience whilst providing refinement and elegance to the future community. All facilities and services are well structured and meant to enhance the focus on life style within the development, offering generous green spaces, children playgrounds and relaxation areas, a kindergarten and library, pub & restaurant, office spaces, fitness centre, 24h/24h security services, maintenance services for public areas and utilities, landscaping services, efficient waste collection, baby sitting and after-school child care, resident transport (school run and emergency) to Bucharest.

English brands will be used as much as possible for the construction materials, house specifications and finishing, whilst the project management team will be conducted by British specialists.

“The English Village development represents a unique concept on the Romanian residential market, addressing the growing need of the Romanian customers for higher comfort, privacy and quality standards. “Solid Investment for Generations…” is the slogan defining the English Village and it reflects our long-term vision that future generations living in this community will equally enjoy its personality and superior lifestyle”, has stated Mr. Philip A. Stapley, COO of Helios Development SRL.

The developers have emphasized the care for the natural environment which will make the English Village a sought after community. Thus, every buyer of an English Village home will be encouraged to plant an oak tree in their garden or vicinity.
