Wembley is “on a winning streak”


Sunday Express features Barratt London’s Wembley Park Gate in a focus on the area’s regeneration.

Deborah Stone, Property Editor of Sunday Express, “discovers how you can buy into” the “winning streak” Wembley has been experiencing since the 2012 Olympics, featuring Barratt London’s Wembley Park Gate development.

Stone talks about the enormous changes Wembley has undergone recently, where “only a decade ago” it “would definitely have been unthinkable” for people to visit “anywhere near the decidedly grotty Wembley Way” for the day or even stay overnight. Now, with the likes of London’s only Designer Outlet discount shopping centre, the Hilton hotel and Cineworld the area has been transformed, with an array of new-build homes also in the pipeline.

Gerald Thomas, Sales Director at Barratt Londoncommented: “Wembley has been undergoing regeneration since the early 2000s. Since the stadium opened in 2007, there have been vast improvements to both transport and infrastructure in the area.
Wembley Park Gate is going to be a fantastic opportunity for first-time buyers trying to get on the property ladder. The development’s location provides excellent transport links to the economic hub of Canary Wharf, and a host of amenities such as a podium garden, concierge service, a residents’ fitness suite and a metro-style supermarket. Where previously it was difficult to imagine Wembley as a residential destination, it is now a place people want to live and visit for the day. With the stadium and London Designer Outlet on your doorstep, there are now a range of shops, cafes and bars to enjoy.”

Barratt London’s Wembley Park Gate is one of the new residential developments in the area, due to launch in summer 2015. The development will bring 211 new one-bedroom suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments to Wembley, each with a private balcony. Residents will benefit from fast connections to central London, with Wembley Park underground station just moments away offering connections to “central London on the Metropolitan Line” in only 12 minutes, and is just “30 minutes from the financial sector at Canary Wharf on the Jubilee Line”, says Stone.

Stone highlights that the “potential for Wembley is huge”, with excellent transport links, shopping facilities and new homes in the neighbourhood, Wembley had become a residential destination.
