Tottenham Court Road property prices get biggest boost from CrossrailMonday, March 18, 2013. Ivan Radford @themovechannel
Tottenham Court Road property prices will receive the biggest boost from Crossrail, according to Jones Lang LaSalle. The firm’s research analyses the impact of Crossrail upon residential markets in Central London, revealing that house price growth will be uneven, led by Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon and Canary Wharf, where prices are expected to grow by 40 per cent between now and 2018.
Adam Challis, Head of Residential Research at Jones Lang LaSalle explains "Some local residential markets will see a greater benefit from Crossrail. For example, the perennial problem with Canary Wharf has been accessibility to Heathrow. Journey times will be cut to 40 minutes and convenience greatly improved for both employment and residential.
"Farringdon will become a key transport connection being only one stop to Kings Cross/ St Pancras International. Given that it is not even on the Central line at the moment, Crossrail will significantly increase its relevance.
"Almacantar's plans for Centre Point, if approved, will generate new residential price records in the local market. This is all happening on the edge of the West End, the most expensive real estate market in the world."
Jones Lang LaSalle expects price growth of nearly 30% on average for all Central London residential development by 2018.
