Riverside properties on the rise

South Bank, London, has come a long way since the 80s when the river was seen as a grey necessity, not an exciting part of the city. In recent years it has become a haven for businesses, homes and small start-ups leading to an increase of demand in properties in the area. This September, we will see the effects of the Totally Thames festival, something that proves the increase in interest in the area.

This festival will include celebrations such as the Great River Race, Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Festival, Rivers of the World exhibition and a performance of Handel’s Water Music with fireworks. The area’s regeneration is well established and South Bank will soon be a largely populated and thriving area of London. In fact, many developers have already stayed one step ahead of the game with 3,000 homes planned to be created along the banks, making the riverside a prime location.

While South Bank has always boasted iconic views such as the Houses of Parliament, Somerset House, St Paul’s Cathedral and Canary Wharf, in years gone by nobody would have thought about actually living there. In recent years with the area’s newest additions like the Shard and the London Eye, South Bank has been re-invented as a well-established and sought after boho living location. A lot of development is planned for the upcoming future and we expect to see a lot more interest in the area soon.
