Hendon is currently one of the most attractive suburban areas in north London. Situated in the Borough of Barnet, the area is favoured because it has fantastic transport links. It has some of the best road connections of any other location in the capital thanks to the proximity to the M1, A1, A5, A41, and North Circular.
The suburb is proving to be so popular that it is the focus of countless development projects. These will ultimately create thousands of new homes and communities. Some of them have already been completed and many more are in the pipeline.
The developments creating new homes in the area include:
Grahame Park – the former council estate is being rebuilt to create around 3,000 homes
Beaufort Park – 3,200 homes are being created on the site, expected for completion in 2024
Colindale Gardens – 2,900 homes are planned for the site for 2026/27
The Old Hendon Hospital – now has 1,500 new homes
British Newspaper Library – work on 395 new homes is underway
Hendon Waterside – 680 council homes are being replaced, creating 2,194 in their place
With so much development going on, great transport links, wonderful amenities, and a wide array of property options to choose from, it is no wonder so many people are looking at investing in the area. In fact Hendon is seeing the highest amount of property investment in Barnet.
Hendon has really good staying power thanks to the property scene in the area and the array of attractions already mentioned. There are plenty of new flats for professionals to invest in as well as larger family homes. As a result people can decide to live in the area from a young age and move up the property ladder when they want to start families.
With thousands of new homes coming and so many things to attract owner occupiers and investors, it won’t be surprising to see property investment in this area of Barnet continue.
