Changing the London landscape through regeneration

Urban regeneration is the plan to improve the physical structure and the economy of inner city areas. Successful regeneration can help improve people’s homes and the supply, boost jobs and improve the areas crime rate, education and health.

A sound investment

Homes in regeneration areas offer the possibility of far greater increases in property values than in un-regenerated surrounding areas.

CBRE conducted a study across several regeneration schemes in London and found that, on average, property price growth of 4.7% per annum above and beyond wider house price growth.” (CBRE, real estate services company in London).

  • Overall property price growth in NW9 (Hendon) outstripped average London price growth by 30% from 2014 to 2019 (source: Rightmove) and the average price of a 1 bed at Hendon Waterside increased over £80,000 over the last 4 years.
  • At Greenland Place the average value of our 1 bed apartments increased over £120,000 within 4 years and £ per square foot increased on our 2 beds by 33% over the lifetime of the development.
