In a once unloved and destitute part of London now sits one of the city’s most prestigious and sought-after areas. The regeneration of Nine Elms began in 2012 and currently consists of over 20,000 brand new residential and commercial properties across 561 acres, spanning the Wandsworth and Lambeth boroughs.
Along with huge housing growth, the area’s infrastructure has also seen a vast improvement with newly built parks, improved retail experiences, state-the-art leisure facilities, more office space, better transport links, and new schools and health centres; the whole place has had an unrecognisable facelift.
Nine Elms has quickly become the new Chelsea and Kensington south of the river, for those wanting to live in a fashionable up-and-coming area.
With desirable locations comes high-yield properties and opportunities; particularly in the rental market, making it ideal for investors. And with its buzzing community, the area is attracting a wealth of new buyers including international students, young professionals, international families, and people wanting a change from Chelsea and Kensington, and instead looking to live somewhere more modern and contemporary with a more vibrant cultural scene.
Of the thousands of new homes created in the area, we’re very proud to have delivered interior design services to some of the most prestigious developments including Battersea Power Station, The Residence, Embassy Gardens, The Tower, Sky Gardens, and Thames City - where we have completed over 400 units!
Our completed projects in the area to date span 400 apartments across 12 developments and increase weekly. This includes furniture package services, private residences, showhomes, marketing suites, and communal areas such as lounges, concierge rooms, and cinema rooms.
Samuel Lewis-Clinton, Group Sales Director at INVESTA, says: “I pride myself on possibly being one of the few people in the interior design industry who knows Nine Elms the best and the regeneration it’s seen over the last ten years.
“I bought my first property just a stone’s throw away eight years ago, and I completely bought into the vision of the area. In around 2014 the area was a hard sell and getting buyers to see beyond the construction, cranes, and noise was a challenge, but I think we got there. At the time there was just one development and now there are so many it’s almost become a town in its own right!”
