They might be planning to watch the games on the large TVs in the ground-floor shared lounges found in all three Tipi apartment developments – Montana, Dakota and Alto – or celebrating on Alto’s communal roof terrace.
Perhaps they might end up cooking together in the shared Kitchen and chill-out room at Alto – even though they’ve all got their own kitchens – because the well-equipped communal room has superfast wifi, gorgeous furniture and like all the other community spaces is free to use.
The Tipi apartments are being built by property developer Quintain in Wembley Park, on the doorstep of Wembley Stadium and next to the SSE Arena, just a few minutes from London Designer Outlet with 50 shops, 20 restaurants and coffee shops and a nine-screen cinema.
All residents have access to private communal gardens but Quintain is also adding a number of public spaces to Wembley Park, which is fitting for an area that became a public pleasure garden after the arrival of the Metropolitan Railway in the 1890s.
The public also enjoyed themselves in the gardens and pavilions of the 1924/1925 British Empire Exhibition, when the old Wembley stadium was built.
The Metropolitan Line is still there providing fast access to central London and, as well as the buzz of the new stadium, there are new public spaces and entertainment places beginning to occupy those former pleasure gardens.
Quintain is opening a seven-acre public park to the east of the stadium and London’s third Boxpark – a street food pop-up – will open half way down Olympic Way later this year.
A new theatre opens this year in the Quintain-owned former TV studios where The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent were filmed and at the new Arena Square there will be free public screenings of live National Theatre productions, Bollywood films and next month’s Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
You don’t have to live in a Tipi apartment to enjoy any of this but those that do have the added bonus of free residents’ events such as quizzes and dance lessons, or discounts from local shops and cafes.
If it all sounds a bit millennial-focused, well that’s only part of the story.
Apartment owners and tenants are from all age groups, according to Tipi’s managing director Rajesh Shah.
“We have a range of ages, anything from students to people in their late 60s and into their 70s, as well as families,” he says.
“And our next two apartment buildings, the Landsby development launching this autumn, are pet-friendly.”
The Alto development is the last to offer a mix of flats for sale and to rent because rental has proved so popular, says Shah:“We found that people are prepared to pay a 15 per cent premium to get the lifestyle choice and the amenities, from concierge to maintenance, and use of the shared social spaces.”
The name Tipi comes from the flexible lifestyle of Native Americans and Quintain’s philosophy is that renting should be a similar concept with a strong community feel.
There’s certainly an American feel to the blocks, with a high standard of fixtures and fittings, and the idea of renting as a lifestyle rather than a stop-gap.
“There are no fees to live at Tipi, no deposit and we don’t charge people who move between our buildings – some people have upgraded to a larger unit or one with a better view,” says Shah.
There are still flats for sale at Alto, from £460,000 for a one-bedroom flat (altoapartments.com) and one-bedroom rental starts from £1,895 per calendar month, or £1,705pcm at Montana and Dakota.
Bigger flats are also available at all three developments (020 3151 1961; tipi.london).
