Camden is still changing

Camden is a tourist hotspot, welcoming over 28 million visitors per year to the Market, Stables, and other popular destinations. Behind the main streets though there are plenty of great homes, including period properties and brand new builds. At Finefair, the top name for block management Camden has, we have experience dealing with all types of home. We have also seen how much the area has changed.

50s and 60s

In these decades a very different type of audience wanted to live in Camden. Instead of a young trendy crowd the old period homes were attractive to writers, artists, and other creative types. They loved the fact that they could get great deals on large properties in the area. There are plenty of stories of people who bought properties for less than £15,000 at the time. The same homes are now worth millions.


In the decades since the area has changed beyond belief. Old warehouses and industrial buildings are now modern homes, offices, and shops. Many of the period properties have been modernised, getting rid of the run-down look. Some are now split into flats, making them more attractive to young professionals. There are also plenty of new builds in the pipeline.

One of the biggest projects is Camden Lock Village. The new development on the east side of the canal will have 195 new homes and employment space. As part of the project the railway arches are becoming cafes and restaurants.

In total there are thousands of new homes in the pipeline for the area. The modern feel of these properties combines really well with the older ones as well as the thriving market and tourist spots. It makes the area very exciting.
