Why Acton?

A new era for Acton

Acton’s future is bright. Only a few minutes north of The Verdean is one of the capital’s most ambitious infrastructure and regeneration projects, attracting residents and businesses to the area.

Included in the project, is the delivery of the High Speed 2’s (HS2) only London interchange with Crossrail. Opening in 2026, HS2 offers rapid access to the north of England, halving current journey times to the likes of Manchester.

Not only is HS2 set to bring growth to the area, making it a prime location for businesses looking to expand, Crossrail is also opening in 2021. 

The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is a £18bn investment becoming Europe’s largest infrastructure project. Creating new employment hubs along its route, Crossrail is attracting a new pool of buyers looking for quicker commuting times to their workplace.

A major catalyst for regeneration in the capital, when it opens in 2021, Crossrail will take commuters from The Verdean to Central London in under 10 minutes, with trains every 5 minutes in peak times. And with only a 45 second walk to the station, it’s one of the closest located developments in West London for Crossrail.

The ongoing regeneration of the area, coupled with the excellent transport links, make investing at The Verdean an easy decision.

The £26bn project is rejuvenating the surrounding area of Acton with new amenities: new schools, new shops, new infrastructure and the creation of thousands of new jobs.

The rental market for new build homes in West London is “driven by corporate relocations and young professionals drawn in by high status roles.”

Only 10 minutes away is the Chiswick Business Park, home to FTSE 100 companies and major corporations like Sony, Danone, Starbucks, Disney, and Mitsubishi.

W3 is one of the last pockets of West London with strong investment potential with a competitive price per square foot in a booming location with great infrastructure, both current and new, all set in context of the area's wider transformation.

"Short travel times to central locations is one of the key drivers of value for London property."

Nearly half of Greater London is green, with most of it in the west. Acton is one of London's greenest boroughs.

Tree-lined streets have been shown to increase residential property values by up to 18%.

Much of Acton’s recent growing popularity as a hub for home buyers is linked to Crossrail… it’s set to become one of the best connected boroughs in West London.
