2016 has been a record year for lettings, and we expect demand to stay strong in 2017 as more professionals look towards renting as a way of life. The outer parts of West London provide affordable accommodation and allow for a sophisticated lifestyle, providing a great mix of shops, cafes and restaurants, nightlife and green space.
In sales, demand - and prices - have risen dramatically since Crossrail announced it was coming to Acton. Residents here will soon benefit from a quicker commute into central London, and all the gentrification that comes hand in hand with infrastructure investment.
With over 5 years’ experience operating in Acton and Ealing, I have witnessed many great changes to the area, such as improvement to the public realm in terms of accessibility and movement, and the emergence of vibrant, attractive and flourishing town centres. I can’t wait to see Acton flourish even more when Crossrail arrives.
What’s going on in the area?
•Redevelopment of Oakfield shopping centre is now underway
•Regeneration of South Acton Industrial Estate and South Acton Estate
•24- hour weekend Night Tube service has launched on the Piccadilly and Central lines
•The introduction of Low Emission Bus Zone area in parts of Ealing, this is to ensure that local buses are part of the “next generation of cleaner eco-friendly models
•The new zones include Uxbridge Road to Shepherd's Bush, Ealing Broadway via Hanger Lane to Uxbridge Road, The Broadway, Chiswick High Road to Kensington – via Hammersmith Broadway and Kensington High Street to Studland Street. Routes including the 27, 237, 267, 391, H91, E3, 190 and 70 will all be part of the project to extend the Low Emission Bus Zones in the city in the next three years
