Where to buy next in Central London
A recent Consultation Document and Masterplan for Bartlett Park, an open parkland just south of the Olympic Park, has created an area of interest for developers, home owners and investors alike.
With the massive ripple effect of interest in East London created by the positive impact of the Olympic Park regeneration, and Tower Hamlets’ recognition for the potential of this hidden gem, as laid out in their master plan, means that the secret is out says Paul Driscoll of Hurford Salvi Carr.
Whenever someone asks me ‘where should I invest in London, where is the next hotspot?’ my normal response is to tell them to follow the regeneration plans of the local boroughs, look for areas already identified for an increase in infrastructure and quality of living.
Bartlett Park is exactly one such example, there is no doubt that if successful, this master plan will transform the area. Early adopters have already seen excellent appreciation on their investment, and I know of many who are now looking to increase their portfolio in this location”
At just over 12 acres, Bartlett Park is already one of East London’s greatest open spaces, however the plan proposes an architectural overhaul of the landscape and a waterfront connection to The River Lea navigation, (often referred to as the Limehouse Cut), that runs along its entire northern Boundary.
The Master Plan goes on to state:
“The increasing population and improved quality of the surrounding built form, add to the need for a high quality open space that can offer more opportunities for improved recreation. The removal of a large residential block that was formerly located on Cottall Street between the park and the canal now offers the opportunity to reunite these two areas of open space, to create a dynamic waterfront with a special quality.
The unique location offers dramatic views of the docklands skyline and provides the site with a strong sense of place. This along with the rejuvenation of the surrounding architecture emphasises the need for a strong design with a contemporary character.”
The latest development set to benefit is E-Pad, a stylish development of 18 apartments, by Telford Homes. A range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments are available. Prices begin at £214,950.
