Galliard Homes pride themselves on building premium-quality properties and offering exceptional value for money to a broad client base of home-buyers, Buy-to-Let purchasers and property investors from the UK and abroad. They have developments across the UK, with Dataloft commissioned to provide reports for London and their Birmingham city centre Timber Yard development.
Their Islington Square development is a £400m transformation of Royal Mail’s former mail centre into apartments and a luxury retail and entertainment destination to rival Covent Garden and Coal Drops Yard at King’s Cross. The report analysed the new build market and highlighted the rarity of this property type in Islington, London’s most densely populated borough, where just one in ten sales are new build, compared with over double that across inner London. Completions here in the last five years are the second lowest of all inner London boroughs.
The report looked at property prices within a 5-minute walk of the top ten retail destinations in London. The average price of property sold within a five-minute walk of bohemian Upper Street was £948,989. This currently stands at an 11.4% premium compared to the rest of Islington, and is likely to be enhanced by the prestigious retail and leisure facilities which the Islington Square development will bring.
This report achieved extensive publicity in the press, including the Evening Standard, House Beautiful, What House? and online in Prime Resi.
