Harrow may be in Zone 5 but it offers fast train links to Central London. The distance from the centre of the capital means there is an abundance of space available. This is particularly easy to spot with the low density interwar homes across the Borough interspaced with green open spaces. Not surprisingly the location appeals to families.
The area could become even more popular following a period of property investment in Harrow. The result of this is up to 5,000 new homes are being created, many of them right in the heart of the town centre. A number of these will be Help to Buy, allowing more young people to get on the property ladder.
There are several noteworthy projects that will create the new homes. One of them is Harrow Square. The four blocks will rise to various heights, between six and twenty storeys. They were designed by Chicago based skyscraper specialists SOM Architects. A number of the homes in the buildings will be dual aspect, offering fantastic views and great lighting. The properties will also feature solar panels and communal roof terraces.
Harrow View West is also a huge project. It replaced a former Kodak print works, creating space for 1,800 new homes. The first phase will produce a third of these including family homes on tree lined avenues with wonderful garden spaces.
The huge amount of work going on in Harrow gives it a really forward thinking feel. The youthful buzz is further enhanced due to the fact that a University of Westminster Media, Arts and Design campus is in the area.
