The six open market flats are available at prices ranging from £275,000 for a studio to £800,000 for a two-bedroom penthouse.
In Askew Road, Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward is selling a development of nine flats with a double shop unit to be occupied by estate agent Marsh & Parsons. The flats range in price from £395,000 for a one-bedroom property to £999,950 for a three-bedroom penthouse. The development is nearly ready for occupation.
Coming soon is the controversial regeneration of Shepherd’s Bush Market which involves creating a new square in Uxbridge Road next to the former library, now occupied by the Bush Theatre, with a block of 212 flats at the Goldhawk Road end of the market. The development by Orion Land & Leisure will start at the end of the year if the compulsory purchase orders are confirmed.
