The London commuter belt towns are emerging as favourite destinations for young families, first-time buyers, commuting professionals and homebuyers for a variety of reasons. Quick and easy access to London’s business hubs, homes at prices achievable to buyers, good schools and sports infrastructure, greenery, open spaces and recreational facilities are some of the reasons for people to pick the commuter belt towns.
While Luton easily falls into this category, another emerging property hotspot for home buyers is Harlow, 30 mins-train journeys from London Liverpool Street. Over the years, Harlow, resurrected by Sir Frederick Gibberd’s masterplan, has grown into a vibrant town thriving under the guidance of the Harlow Town Council.
Harlow is well connected to the rest of the UK – just 17 minutes to Stansted International Airport and 40 minutes to Cambridge. Harlow is integral to the London-Stansted-Cambridge Innovation Corridor because of which several leading international aeronautical, electronic, pharma and education companies have set up base offering employment opportunities.
The town’s profile has risen with the Harlow Enterprise Zone, a premier business location and one of 45 locations across the country, designated by the UK Government, to provide incentives for investment. The planned long-term infrastructure-related investments are further set to elevate the town as an important infrastructure hub.
Harlow offers a good quality of life for residents. Princess Alexandria Hospital, top-ranked schools, sprawling gardens, lakes, Harvey Centre for shopping and retail experience; gaming zones for children and other amenities ensure that the town scores high on all parameters for house-buyers.
The town is undergoing an extensive regeneration with the focus on quality housing and infrastructure. A significant component of Harlow’s regeneration is the redevelopment of the Harvey Centre in Harlow Town Centre.
We have a mandate for delivering 523 new residential units in Harvey Centre as part of our new scheme HQ, which has an existing planning consent with a net floor area of over 303,000 square feet alongside 43,000 square feet of commercial space. The phase 1 of HQ comprising 163 residential units, including studios, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments, is launched today, 27th February, 2020.
HQ perfectly blends into the town centre with a touch of modernity. In fact, HQ has already been shortlisted for the prestigious First Timer Buyer Readers Award 2020 in the Best Offplan Development category.
Harlow is poised for growth, offering the most desirable quality of life, and we are now part of this incredible journey!
