With Canada Water becoming ever more of a talking point when it comes to residential property in London, we interviewed Rebecca Littler, Sales & Marketing Director of London Square, on their upcoming scheme and what Canada Water has to offer buyers.
- What makes Canada Water a great place to invest?
The Canada Water Masterplan is set to change the face of Canada Water as it is currently known, providing new homes, leisure complex, high street, shopping, office space, hotel, park. Its location and transport links make Canada Water a perfect choice for those working in Canary Wharf or the City without having to pay the higher property prices associated with these areas. The woodland, open green spaces and waterways add a sense of serenity to Canada Water.
- What excites you most about the redevelopment?
Creating a new community and destination place.
- What is the investor landscape like? Where are they from and what are they looking for?
At London Square Canada Water we have had interest from a broad spectrum of buyers, first time buyers renting locally and wanting to get a foothold in the local market, workers from Canary Wharf seeking an easier commute to the office and investors who appreciate the strong rental market in the area and see the benefit of capital growth.
- What sort of premiums can outside space or views demand?
All apartments at London Square Canada Water benefit from a private balcony or terrace, some terraces are in excess of 500 sq ft. There is also a communal landscaped courtyard garden at the heart of the development providing a peaceful retreat in addition to an attractive outlook to those apartments overlooking it. Some apartments at London Square Canada Water afford views towards Canary Wharf or the City Skyline, both of which are surprisingly close.
- How important is transport for Londoners?
Essential – the underground and overground network provides fast and easy access across London and beyond.
- How is Canada Water different from its neighbours in Canary Wharf?
Canada Water offers a quieter retreat for residents with woodland, green spaces and river walks to relax and enjoy the surroundings whilst still being close to all the action.
- What’s next for Canada Water and surrounding area?
The Canada Water Masterplan and Brunel Bridge.
