One of the tallest buildings in London’s West End, Centre Point is a Grade II listed architectural classic in WC1. Almacantar is in the process of fully rejuvenating this icon, creating a new residential, restaurant and retail destination for the area. The 117m tall residential tower will have 82 apartments (1, 2 and 3 bedrooms and a unique penthouse) over 34 floors offering truly unrivalled views over the London skyline.
Once considered only a place of work, the City is now more diverse and a desirable residential location; almost 1,000 new homes have been completed since 2009 and there are a further 740 currently under construction. The ability to live close to work is being realised as the quality of residential offering now matches the aspiration of City workers. As a result, the City is becoming a firm part of London’s prime residential property market and in the last five years average prices have increased by 81%, or 12.6% per year.
Strong market fundamentals remain, despite recent political events and, although some developers and builders appear to be taking a ‘wait and see’ attitude, others are progressing as usual. Forecast growth remains unchanged and current house price growth of 5.1% across the UK is an encouraging sign.
With additional stamp duty coming into effect in April and the EU referendum in June, we thought we were in for a quiet quarter. In fact, we experienced the opposite, demonstrating just how resilient the London market, and specifically our patch, is.
