6 Top property hotspots to watch out for in London 2016
With prices rising in 2016 there are still some hotspots in London which are predicted to outgrow the rest of the capital. With Crossrail and Northern Line extensions coming to completion in the next few years, many places will have improved transports links to central London.
Transport for London has also unveiled proposals for 13 new river crossings from Fulham in the west to Dartford in the east with the majority being built in the east of London.
Battersea is seeing major redevelopment of the power station, the US Embassy moving in, and two new tube stations the future looks good. With popular Clapham as a neighbour and excellent access into the center of London this has always been a popular area. There are proposals for a new foot bridge across the river Thames at Nine Elms.
With Crossrail opening in 2018, Hayes will suddenly enjoy journey times of 35 minutes to central London. Investors and developers are already proposing regeneration plans for this town in the suburbs of West London. This should encourage further growth.
3. Ealing Broadway
Crossrail will reduce train journey times to central from 25 minutes to 10 minutes. With further redevelopment of the town this will make Ealing a firm contender in the future.
4. Old Oak Common
A major transport “superhub” is planned north of Wormwood Scrubs which will have a major impact on Acton, Harlesdon and Willesden.
Crossrail again will improve transport links to the center of London.
6. Upper Lea Valley
Crossrail 2 will link Lea Valley Park to more jobs in London.
