Style and design phases come and go but quality will always be in vogue with new homes. With demand as strong as ever for property to buy in London, our estate agents in Canary Wharf take a look at what the latest trends in the London property market are for 2019.

Canary Wharf is always a top spot to buy property

Brexit chatter is rife. Deal or no deal. It is definitely the talk of the town. One thing is sure however, amidst all of the uncertainty we can be certain that London will always be a top spot to buy property.

The interest in the capital is still very much there. People may be taking a little more time to make the decision. Viewings per purchaser are up but ultimately the demand is still as strong if not stronger than ever. With that clarification made, it is time to look at what people will be looking for in a property in 2019. One thing’s for sure, E14 is a great place to call home.

Good quality is always on trend with buyers

People love technology. Built-in speaker systems and smart lighting and heating applications are fantastic. But most people would trade these things for a better quality finish on the property. Good quality fixtures and fittings will always be on trend. New builds such as the Liberty building offer high quality living in Canary Wharf.

Mum’s the word with lifestyle being a big consideration for buyers

Another big trend currently is properties that give you the option to have a Granny Flat, a room for a nanny/au pair or even a room that has Air BnB potential. People want to make the most out of outbuildings and aren’t simply content to have a lawnmower and a bicycle taking up residence in what can be very valuable space.

Another key influence is lifestyle. New home developments mean that Canary Wharf is no longer just a place for business. Areas such as Wood Wharf are bringing more homes to Canary Wharf, along with a better lifestyle.

When it comes to buying property, people are more aware than ever about the footprint and energy rating of a building. Sustainability is also a growing trend for interiors, with an emphasis on the use of sustainable materials and manufacturing processes.

The sky is the limit when purchasing a home in E14

With an ever growing skyline, one of the biggest trends for the future will be the skyscraper

Another trend for new developments is height. High rise towers are definitely the way forward with the skyline becoming more Manhattan-like as each year goes by. The 10 Park Drive development in Wood Wharf has already reached its full height of 149m.

This year we will see the fantastic Landmark Pinnacle take precedence on the Canary Wharf skyline. The 75 floor high building will provide beautiful homes with incredible views that would be hard to beat in Manhattan itself.
