Bromley’s New Homes to Attract Buyers

Em Morley - May 20, 2015

The London Borough of Bromley will soon be attracting buyers after receiving part of a £221m Mayor of London fund to develop some of the capital’s high streets.

Bromley’s town centre is being improved with a new quarter of residential property, leisure space, shops and spots dedicated to the arts.

The £90m St Mark’s Square initiative is set to be finished later this year. The South East London suburb will get 200 private and affordable apartments around the new piazza and performance space, alongside a multiplex cinema, hotel, cafes and restaurants. Prospective buyers can contact Cathedral Group on 020 7939 0800.

Bromley is the largest borough in London, covering 59 square miles. The majority of this is greenbelt that spreads into Kent and Surrey. The area is just a 20-minute train journey from central London, making it attractive to professionals.

Young residents will likely look at Berwick Quarter in nearby Orpington. This project is hidden behind the high street and is close to the station. Prices start at £230,000 and hopeful buyers can call Robinson Jackson on 01689 833 322.

Berkeley Homes has recently had its plans to redevelop Orpington police station into 83 homes approved by the council.
