New flats on a site in Southwark with lots of history

The property market in London has lots to offer but it is so large and diverse it can be difficult to find exactly what you want. If you are thinking about property investment Southwark has plenty of potential. To the north you can be close to the Thames and lots of amenities. The City and Canary Wharf are easy to reach so commuters love the area. There is also lots of new development at Canada Water.

New flats

One thing to keep in mind is that London is a very old city that has seen a lot of change over the years. As a result there are homes on all kinds of sites with interesting histories.

Trilogy is a new development of 27 flats that has a site with a really great history. During excavation on the project the remains of a Roman temple were discovered. This building was from the age of Emperor Hadrian, 117 to 138.

In the 19th century the same site was home to a county debtors court. One of the most famous people to appear here was John Dickens, father of novelist Charles Dickens. When John was unable to pay his debts in 1824 he was summarily imprisoned at Marshalsea. This in turn led to Charles quitting school at 12 to work in a factory before becoming perhaps the greatest Victorian novelist.

An exciting location

This part of Southwark has lots to offer residents. It is close to the Shard, Tower Bridge, and Borough Market. There are two Tube Stations nearby, Borough and Elephant & Castle. In terms of amenities, there are few areas in London with more choice.

Trilogy has three distinct buildings and flats designed by award winning architects. Each home will have some external space, either a balcony or a terrace. There will also be a roof garden where residents can enjoy the incredible views.

If you are looking to invest this could be a development that ticks all the boxes for you. It certainly stands out as one of the best new examples of property investment Southwark has.
