"The Ilford property market is booming!
A huge number of landlords are hoping to invest in the area ahead of Crossrail coming into effect. When the high-speed rail link is fully operational in December 2019, Ilford will be just 27 minutes from Paddington, 24 minutes from Bond Street, 17 minutes from Canary Wharf and less than an hour from Heathrow.
We’ve also seen an influx of young professional renters move into the area, attracted to the affordable rental prices and quick transport links into Liverpool Street."
What’s going on in the area?
•The Iconic Harrison Gibson building in the heart of Ilford is being transformed into 323 flats and a retail and restaurant space, which will be complete late 2017
•We’re seeing the high street smarten up! Starbucks is just one of many high street chains that has opened up a shop in Ilford, and Metro Bank have acquired an extremely large site opposite the Ilford Exchange shopping centre which will be complete later this year.
•Ilford station also has had a brand new entrance built and now open at York road
