The UK economic and political landscape has been dominated by Brexit over the past 2½ years. The next 2½ years are likely to be similar, albeit dealing with a different phase of the process.

Inevitably, the UK will collectively refocus attention on domestic policies as the sphere of influence from Brexit diminishes. And there are plenty of housing issues that need addressing – affordability, taxation, regulation in the private rental sector, affordable homes, housing supply, lack of skilled labour and digital construction are just some of the issues to address.


Highlights include:

• Loans to Build to Rent landlords have fallen 46% since the Brexit referendum and July 2018

• The UK is still far behind its target of 300,000 new homes a year by 2020, but delivery is speeding up

• Tech is likely to provide huge disruption over the next 5 years, with digital construction, building information modelling and smart tech all playing a role

• Central London house prices are forecast to grow at 15.3% over the next 5 years

Despite several high-value transactions during Q3 2018, the Prime Central London sales market suffered a setback to its recovery during the quarter.

On average, prices fell marginally during Q3 having increased in the preceding two quarters and transaction volumes also slowed too. 

The lettings market benefited from a stronger quarter, if a little down on Q3 2017. Rental values increased across all price ranges while turnover experienced its usual Q3 boost. 

Looking forward, we expect a brighter future for both Prime Central London sales prices and rental values. We believe that some kind of Brexit deal will be agreed in the coming months which will remove a degree of uncertainty and instil much needed confidence into the Prime Central London market.


Key highlights include:

• Sales prices fall in Q3

• Transactions slowed further

• Rents rise in Q3

• Students bolster the market

With several new residential developments and the opening of the new Elizabeth Line, interest in West London is once again on the rise, following several years of East London domination.

While the opening of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) has been delayed, the new transport options will nevertheless change the face of West London, opening up new areas not only for commuters into the West End but also into the City and Canary Wharf.

It will continue to be the catalyst for development, especially in close proximity to Crossrail stations. Furthermore, some locations not renowned as commuter towns will be transformed by new residents. So expect West London to see a major makeover during the next decade. 

In addition to Crossrail, it looks like the Heathrow expansion will be given the green light, adding a third runway to the airport by 2026.

The expansion of Heathrow Airport will bring important revitalisation to some areas of West London, creating around 60,000 jobs and generating around £70bn in economic benefits by the 2050s. The new runway will increase capacity from 86m to 130m passengers a year. 

These large scale infrastructure projects will mark a new chapter for West London.


Highlights include:

• Acton has been a buzz of development activity in recent years, with 1,425 unit completions since 2014

• Brentford and Kew Bridge have the most units currently under construction in West London with 1,265 units underway

• Ealing will benefit from the opening of the Elizabeth Line and is currently at the top end of new build pricing in West London, with properties reaching up to £1000 psf. 

• Hayes & Harlington and Southall, positioned to the northeast of Heathrow, will benefit from the Elizabeth Line, with the area being host to the most extensive planning pipeline in West London

• West Drayton and Drayton Gardens, one of the westernmost villages in London, has seen significant residential development, with 1,141 completions over the past 5 years

• Uxbridge has seen a surge of residential development activity in recent years, with 628 units currently in the planning pipeline.

In our recent report we discover how Canary Wharf is transforming from a primarily financial hub into a vibrant Central London mixed use neighbourhood.


Crossrail will make a huge difference once it is fully operational and will make Canary Wharf more accessible and better connected than ever before.


There are plenty of new developments under construction to cater for the first wave of new residents keen to take advantage of the enhanced connectivity, while the planning pipeline is ready for the next wave of Canary Wharf occupants. Many of the new inhabitants will be renters, such is the scale of multifamily development.


The volume of new development over the next 5–10 years will mark a step change for Canary Wharf as a residential location.


We expect price and rental growth in Canary Wharf to be strong and higher than the Central London average over the next five years. The opening of Crossrail together with a wealth of residential developments and an influx of new residents will be the key drivers of this out performance.

London’s City Fringe is broadening its geography, with areas such as Shoreditch, Hoxton, Aldgate and Whitechapel now considered bona fide City Fringe locations. New digital businesses are a driving force but a significant increase in residential development, to support a new and younger demographic and the growing trend towards city living, has also been instrumental. 


With much residential development and expansion to the east, especially around City Road and Aldgate, The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is also bringing City Fringe contender Whitechapel into the mix. Furthermore, western fringes of the City are also growing as residential locations, with several developments in the Chancery Lane area. Construction activity has never been as high as it is today, with 4,339 units under construction. The outlook is also exciting with almost 5,000 units likely to be built over the next 5-10 years.


Here is a sneak peek of what you will find inside.



• Central City, although usually muted for development, has several schemes under construction

• Momentum is gaining along City Road with a number of developments nearing completion

• Whitechapel, situated on the new Elizabeth Line, will benefit from better connectivity to Canary Wharf, the City and West End

• More than 1,150 private units have been completed in Aldgate in the last 5 years

• Developments in the most central locations of the area can push above £2,000 psf

• The lettings market is very active, with over 600 new unit completions each year over the past four years, meaning plenty of developments to choose from.
