All Aboard the Elizabeth line, from London’s Newest Regeneration Hotspots

The past few months have seen an increase in workers returning to offices and the city, whether that be full time or on a hybrid basis[1]. But this time commuters have a new way to get around the Capital – on the newly opened Elizabeth line.  The next stop to launch is Bond Street this week, delivering transformative travel and producing a brand-new set of commuter hotspots in and around London. Many of these new hotspots are areas undergoing huge regeneration to make improvements for local residents, such as The London Borough of Ealing’s vibrant communities in West Ealing and Southall. For city workers looking to invest in London, living and buy a home in an up-and-coming area, housing developer Latimer, by Clarion Housing Group, has a number of new developments in the borough, ideal for quick commutes and long-term investment opportunities.

From this week, residents at Latimer’s developments Union Walk at The Green Quarter and Junction West will enjoy a swift commute from Southall to Bond Street in as little as 18-minutes, whilst buyers at The Bowery will reach the new station from West Ealing in just 16-minutes.

Krete Luca, Sales Director at Latimer, comments: “The Elizabeth line has brought a fresh travel dynamic to London, and with it a new set of districts that are easily commutable for city workers. West Ealing and Southall are just two of the locations that commuters will now be looking to put down roots in.  Both of which have unrivalled travel times into Central London in just over 10-minutes. These areas are undergoing large regeneration projects, of which the huge positive impact will be seen for years to come. Buyers looking for a commutable home in which they can reap the rewards of regeneration in the future should definitely look towards Ealing’s growing borough.” 

West Ealing – the vibrant West London neighbourhood known as ‘Queen of the Suburbs’ – is currently undergoing a £237million regeneration to provide new facilities for local residents and those looking to relocate, including providing more than 900 new homes. The area is also part of Transport for London’s ‘Liveable Neighbourhoods’ scheme, providing improvements to street designs, public realm and transport measures – including the Elizabeth line – to promote safer streets and encourage residents to walk, cycle and use public transport. The Bowery by Latimer is situated in the heart of the area’s regeneration, just a five-minute walk from Ealing High Street and overlooking Dean Gardens, a walk-through open space which has recently been transformed with new community gardens, outdoor gym equipment and a new children’s play area. Comprising 60 one, two and three bedroom shared ownership apartments, the development presents an opportunity for those wanting to step onto the property ladder in an affordable, recently regenerated, pocket of West London.

Just along the road is Southall, also in the London Borough of Ealing. An extensive programme of regeneration is currently transforming the local area into a buzzing community with nature at its core. A new public realm along the Grand Union Canal, The Green Quarter, will feature tree-lined avenues, 2,500 freshly planted trees and living green roofs to enhance the biodiversity of the area. Alongside the green credentials of the site, Southall residents will also benefit from a buzzing community including a new school, retail and leisure hub, restaurants, cinema and two new parks. Latimer’s Union Walk is located within this new district. Buyers can choose from a collection of contemporary suites plus one and two-bedroom apartments in this prime position, surrounded by an astonishing 13 acres of new parkland and 90 acres of existing green space. Accessible to all residents, these natural surroundings will also benefit buyers at Junction West. This second development, located a short walk away on the other side of the London suburb, comprises a stylish collection of one, two and three bedroom shared ownership apartments and is moments from Southall station. 

With spectacular views of West London and beyond, the apartments at Latimer’s Ealing developments are finished to an impeccable standard, with modern-day living at their core.  Open-plan living areas enable flexible lifestyles, whilst stylish kitchens come complete with a range of integrated appliances. Many homes benefit from private balconies, ticking the outdoor living box, and all of Latimer’s developments enjoy landscaped outside communal areas and recreational spaces.   

The arrival of the Elizabeth line in the London Borough of Ealing has already increased connectivity for its residents to locations including Heathrow Airport (21-minutes from West Ealing station) and Reading (44-minutes from Southall), and it is set to continue contributing to these ambitious regeneration projects. 

Homes at Latimer’s Southall developments start from £320,000 full market value for a one-bedroom apartment at Union Walk at The Green Quarter with minimum 25% share starting from £80,000. At Junction West, prices start from £370,500 full market value for a two-bedroom apartment with minimum 25% share starting from £92,625. Prices at The Bowery in West Ealing start from £463,000 full market value for a one-bedroom apartment with minimum 30% share starting from £138,900. For further information please visit:
