Bromley has a spring in its step. Being a beneficiary of a £221 million Mayor of London initiative to improve some of the capital’s high streets, the south-east suburb’s tired town centre is getting a facelift, with a buzzing new quarter that mixes residential, leisure, shopping and the arts.

The £90 million St Mark’s Square scheme, due for completion later this year, will bring 200 private and affordable apartments set around a new piazza and performance space, a multiplex cinema, hotel, cafés and restaurants. To register, call Cathedral Group on 020 7939 0800.

Bromley is London’s largest borough at 59 square miles, most of which is green belt running into Kent and Surrey. Packed with leafy avenues, the area also has 20-minute train links to central London, making it popular with prosperous career professionals and self-made business people living in big family houses. Young locals moving out of the family home are likely purchasers at Berwick Quarter, pictured, in nearby Orpington. The scheme is tucked away behind the high street and close to the train station. Prices from £230,000. Call Robinson Jackson on 01689 833 322. 

A Berkeley Homes plan to redevelop Orpington police station into 83-home Brunswick Square has been approved by the local council.
