Our latest research suggests that 2020 will be a year of recovery for the Prime Central London sales market.

The Prime Central London sales market picked up at the end of 2019 as the General Election result injected positivity and a more certain outlook. Looking forward, the rise in turnover witnessed in Q4 should follow into Q1, with a stronger rally in transactions as more buyers and sellers return to a more liberated market.

The Prime Central London lettings market is facing an acute shortage of properties to let, which has led to the highest rate of annual rental growth for over seven years. 2020 could be a year of mixed fortunes for the lettings market. Greater political certainty is likely to bolster rental demand. Nevertheless, the improved performance of the sales market may draw away some lettings demand.

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.

In recent years Scotland’s major cities have established themselves as stand out performers in terms of residential investment and development. Edinburgh, and to a lesser extent Glasgow, have seen above average house price growth in the face of significant supply shortfalls.

 

However, Scotland has faced political uncertainty since 2014 through the Scottish independence referendum and then Brexit. Remain has been the prevailing vote in both referendums with 62% of Scotland voting to stay in the EU - more than any other region in the UK.

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.

CITY & CITY FRINGE

 

• 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.
