New stations can unlock investment potential

New transport links are planned for several locations across London to help inspire development and regeneration. One of the plans is to create a Thameslink Station at Brent Cross. It would be an important part of a larger redevelopment scheme that will create 7,000 homes, new parks, community facilities, and thousands of jobs.

The initial plan for the Thameslink Station was to have it ready by 2031. This project is being pushed forward though, with estimations now suggesting it will be open nine years earlier in 2022. When up and running the service will provide connections to King’s Cross St. Pancras in around 15 minutes.

Although the station is based in Brent Cross it will also benefit people living in parts of the Borough of Brent, particularly around Gladstone Park. The area doesn’t currently have any Thameslink Stations of its own. The Borough is served by the Overground and several Underground Lines but faster connections to King’s Cross with fewer changes will always be appreciated.

The new station could lead more people to consider purchasing investment properties in Brent and close to the site of the redevelopment. As we have seen with Crossrail, prices can rise substantially in areas that are served by new transport links. With the project moving forward and the station expected to open in 2022 it could attract more people looking for opportunities for capital gains.
