Homes & Property credits Barratt London's Renaissance for 'revitalising Lewisham town centre’


London Evening Standard’s property correspondent, David Spittles, looks for "good value homes" in parts of South East London set to benefit from Transport for London’s (TfL) latest tube line extension.

Barratt London’s Renaissance and Catford Green are included in David Spittles’ feature on the extension of the Bakerloo line. Spittles says “the capital’s next big tube project will be a game-changer for good-value SE postcodes with a bohemian edge” and with the proposed extension through south-east London to Kent, the “extended Bakerloo line will provide a vital new link – a fast and direct connection into the West end”.

Transport for London (TfL) is working with Southwark, Lewisham and Bromley boroughs to coordinate the regeneration along the line, and Spittles says the ‘Baker-Lewisham’ line will “provide an opportunity for home-buyers to invest now before prices rise”. “Lewisham is in the throes of a town centre makeover, bringing hundreds of new homes, a modern transport interchange, a new shopping mall and pedestrian-friendly public spaces”. Barratt London’s Renaissance is located in the heart of Lewisham and “comprises a vibrantly-coloured glass-class leisure centre and 788 new homes”.

Spittles states Renaissance is a “scheme revitalising Lewisham town centre”, offering studios, one and two-bedroom apartments and penthouses. In its final phase, Renaissance has brought landscaped public gardens and a striking new Glass Mill Leisure Centre equipped with two swimming pools, a climbing wall, a gym offering a range of fitness classes and a café. All homes have a private balcony or terrace, with homes on higher floors enjoying panoramic views across London’s ever changing skyline.
