Poplar, formerly in the shadow of its Canary Wharf neighbour, is being widely tipped as the next London property hotspot following a planned regeneration of the Chrisp Street Market area. With new research highlighting that homes in regeneration areas attract a premium of almost five percent year on year[i], buyers should look to Bellway’s Lansbury Square development to snap up a new home in a newly sought-after East London location to reap the rewards of the regeneration effect.
The collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments by Bellway Homes is situated in the heart of the thriving East London district.
The apartments include open-plan living spaces, en suites and private balconies and are available to purchase with Help to Buy. The development also features an onsite gym and concierge service.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Homes, comments: “Lansbury Square offers buyers the chance to invest in an affordable new home, before the full regeneration of the area takes effect. “Poplar is already a great choice for first-time buyers and professionals, with a superb location, offering great transport links around the capital.
“Close to the market, Poplar has a great community feel, which adds to the sense of ‘home’ we have created at Lansbury Square. We expect remaining plots to sell quickly, so we encourage potential buyers to register their interest and visit us soon.”
