Nothing boosts the value of homes more than a major transport upgrade, Crossrail is already providing a catalyst for regeneration and forward-thinking home buyers and savvy investors are beginning to focus on the neighbourhoods now in the spotlight because of the new route. Canary Wharf is tipped as a Crossrail winner. For the first time, it will have a direct link to Heathrow, while the new station will be one of the largest on the route, with six storeys of shops, plus restaurants and cafés and a landscaped park. About 10,000 new homes in Docklands are also in the pipeline.
If you’re looking for great transport links Canary Wharf is where it’s at - Crossrail, Underground, DLR, Riverboats, and two airports less both less than 40 mins away.
