Battersea Investment Drives Sales At The Metropolitan To 65 Per Cent
18 Dec 2015

The multi-billion-pound investment at Nine Elms in London has been credited by top five housebuilder Linden Homes for buyers snapping up nearly two-thirds of its new apartments at The Metropolitan.

The high quality collection of brand new and refurbished properties in Battersea Bridge Road is the result of a sensitive transformation of an Edwardian former police station.

Most of the 44 private one, two and three-bedroom apartments are now sold – driven by the huge investment in developing the Nine Elms area to the east, including Battersea power station, with homes, parks and business space.

Dylan May, land, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “It’s unusual for us to talk about other projects, but what’s happening in Nine Elms is undoubtedly raising optimism in the area.

“Battersea has always had a desirable quality and lots to offer, so an injection of investment on this scale is going to hugely enhance what was already a popular area. New activity, fresh business, vibrant culture – The Metropolitan is positioned to enjoy it all, as well as the local uplift in property values.

“I think the market can see the way the wind is blowing and buyers are keen to be part of the area’s rejuvenation, whether as investors or people just eager to live in an area that is so much on the up. I’d advise people to contact us soon to avoid missing out.”

The stylish homes waiting to be snapped up at The Metropolitan are a choice of two-bedroom apartments, ranging from ground floor homes to duplexes roaming over more than 1,112 square feet (103.3 square metres) of floorspace.

High specification features include integrated kitchen appliances, underlit LED lighting, sleek tiling, and a secure video entry system. Homes are ready to fit Sky+ multi-room provision and there is the option of a three-month trial of Hyperoptic broadband and phoneline.
