East London apartments brought to market early amid property surge
A series of new apartments have been brought to market earlier than scheduled amid increased demand for new London homes.
Bellway London has brought forward the release schedule of apartments in Beckton in East London.
391 apartments are being built at Beckton Parkside, located off Viking Gardens, with 281 apartments allocated for private sale as well as 110 affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.
Comprising one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the former brownfield site is situated next to Beckton District Park.
Emma Hamlett, sales director for Bellway London, commented: “We have experienced a huge uptake in enquiries and reservations at Beckton Parkside, with the development proving to be a draw for buyers who want a home with nearby green space and good connections to central London at an affordable price.
“This suggests that the prediction made by some industry commentators earlier in lockdown – that the pandemic might change the perception of apartment developments and make them less desirable – was too short-term in its thinking, as we are seeing the exact opposite of this.
She continued: “London homes, especially apartments, remain as popular as ever despite the pandemic and we’ve seen exceptional levels of demand at Beckton Parkside. With the challenges of lockdowns, many are continuing to work from home and the apartments here have been designed to include designated home working spaces and hyperoptic broadband.
“People have also sought to increase the leisure time they spend outdoors and having the luxury of Beckton District Park on their doorstep has been another key factor in their decision to buy here.”
