Park Royal gets reinvented with riverside flats at Royal Waterside

Apartments at Royal Waterside come with a 20-acre nature reserve including lakes, waterfalls and cycle paths.
Park Royal industrial zone is reinventing itself as a place to live. As well as good road and train links, a branch of the Grand Union Canal passes through it, providing an opportunity for waterside living. For many years, Guinness used the canal to transport barrels to Paddington for distribution to pubs.
And for Zone 3, it is cheap, with two-bedroom flats about half the price of the London average. Redrow's Royal Waterside has 265 apartments alongside a 20-acre nature reserve with lakes, waterfalls, bridges and cycle paths. Prices from £352,500. Call 020 3538 5357.

Developer Bellway has launched First Central, a scheme of 137 apartments priced from £289,995 (one bedroom) to £499,995 (three- bedrooms). A show apartment opens this weekend. Call 0845 018 0716.
