A CBRE report ‘The effects of regeneration on local property values’, analysed 11 regeneration zones in London and concluded that locations within a 10 minute walk benefitted from an average additional 2% increase per annum in residential property prices. The locations analysed were Canary Wharf, Colindale/Burn Oak, Elephant and Castle, Greenwich Peninsula, Kings Cross St Pancras, Nine Elms, Paddington, South Bank, Stratford, Wembley and Woodberry Down. Paddington benefitted the most with a 5.8% increase per annum. The research attributes this to many factors including improved transport links, enhancements to the area’s heritage, retail and green space.
