Our property experts understand local market and rental values in the London property market, from Southbank to the vibrant West End.
Though London has always been, a leading global financial centre, the city is establishing itself as a leading technology hub, attracting occupiers from around Europe to the city’s main business districts. London continues to be popular with overseas investors: In 2016, overseas investors spent £9 billion on the city.**
London offers investors leading covenants across a variety of sectors: banking, insurance, media, technology, fashion, education and industrial. As a result, occupiers require a variety of building styles in new submarkets in Kings Cross, Nine Elms, Battersea, Stratford, Southbank and Silicon roundabout. Investment in the London retail industry is high, while media and technology companies are driving office demand across the city. A growing number of technology companies use London as their EMEA HQ. **
Our property experts in London understand the subtleties of London’s emerging submarkets, from the West End to Canary Wharf.
London’s West End is a retail hub, offering investors a veritable mix of asset types including luxury hotels, residential and quality office space. The area has long attracted major players in the media tech sector, though new development projects in Midtown and Southbank are becoming popular with ICT companies. The city’s docklands in Canary Wharf offer unique opportunities for logistics and industrial real estate projects while remaining a hub for banking and finance industries. Finally, Kings Cross is a new prime commercial property centre located in the newly designated City Quarter entitled “N1C.”
High Speed 2 is just one of multiple rail projects in place aimed at better connecting regional centres with central London. The first phase will connect London to Birmingham, and later north to Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds. Liverpool and Bristol are each regenerating rail gateways into these cities. Across the UK, logistics projects, office complexes in regional centres and student housing projects have attracted the majority of investor attention through 2017.**
