Greenwich offers unparalleled property investment opportunity

A new design-led housing project by Union Developments offers affordable and stylish living a stone's throw from Canary Wharf, the O2 and the forthcoming London Olympics...

The company's contemporary 'Theatro' complex - situated within the Greenwich World Heritage site - encompasses its own restaurant as well as ground-breaking design features such as London's first wall size lobby aquarium along with top level security, a concierge, domestic service staff and secure parking.

A range of 1, 2 and 3-bedroomed apartments and duplex penthouse suites are available, within an intelligent space that mixes commercial and residential areas with private terraces and a dramatic ambiance.

Walking distance from Canary Wharf, the development will be key to financial workers, as well as overseas investors looking to secure buy-to-let properties close to Olympic Park. With Greenwich University, Goldsmith’s College and Lewisham College also nearby, parents of overseas students can capitalise on the growing trend of purchasing student accommodation in the Capital rather than renting, as a long-term property investment.

Business and Design director Yonathan Laznik says: "Investors' money will work harder for them in a Union Development because we outperform all other developments in Central London: since 2005 Union Developments properties show twice the growth in value with an average rate of 19.5% compared to the average in London, which performed with an 8% increase. The apartments we have designed for Theatro are beautiful but perfectly accessible for today’s market."

Theatro (located at Creek Road, West Greenwich, London SE8) forms part of a huge regeneration project sweeping South East London that will see it neighbouring other major new developments including New Capital Quay, comprising over 636 private apartments. The area is sure to become one of the capital's liveliest residential districts.

With its close proximity to Greenwich town centre, the open space of Greenwich Park and the connectivity afforded by mainline rail services into London and Kent and the Docklands Light Railways to Canary Wharf and the City, it truly is an investment to get in on early.

Union Developments is an extraordinarily innovative organisation that brings together design expertise, foresight, imagination and innovation to create flexible, highly-specified contemporary apartments.

To date, Union Developments (www.uniondevelopments.co.uk) has developed and marketed more than 50,000 homes worldwide and each one is distinguished by the company's pledge to raise the bar in what home-owners can expect – spaces that are beautiful on the outside and smart on the inside.
