A new report claims that the regeneration of Hammersmith will put the town in good shape to rival Westfield as a shopping, leisure and night-time destination.
Hammersmith is currently undergoing massive refurbishment projects at the Lyric Theatre and the Kings Mall shopping centre, and the office blocks and public plaza at Hammersmith Grove are due to be completed in the next year.
It is hoped that with the current developments as well as plans for Hammersmith Town Hall in the pipeline – which will include flats, council offices, a public piazza and new restaurants and shops near the bottom of King Street – the town could become a thriving night-time location.
Restaurants including Nando’s and Wasabi have arrived in Hammersmith in the past year and popular fashion store H&M will front the new-look Kings Mall when it is completed this summer.
“These improvements will certainly enhance the town for residents, visitors and workers alike,” says Sophie Durkin, manager at the Hammersmith branch of lettings agent Bushells. The regeneration will almost certainly have a positive impact on the property market too, making now a good time to invest here.”
