The Crossrail property hotspots have been revealed...

Posted 22 January 2015

Over the next five years, Whitechapel homeowners will see a 54% increase in their property prices - the biggest jump in values on the London part of the Crossrail route, according to new research.

The Crossrail effect will be keenly felt in the property market, with Woolwich (52%), West Drayton (51%), Ealing Broadway (50%) and West Ealing (48%) completing the top five. 

Property company JLL has released an interactive graphic revealing the expected extent of growth across the whole route. 

The index analysed a 750m radius around each station, and took in to account the effect of Crossrail itself, local regeneration and property price inflation. The average expected price increase caused by Crossrail across the 38 affected stations is 8%. 

Adam Challis, head of residential research at JLL, said: "Areas experiencing significant regeneration to combine with the Crossrail effect will benefit most, but all Crossrail locations will reap the rewards of a higher profile alongside greater consumer and developer interest." 

The report also identifies overlooked areas with long term potential to prosper, including Slough, Ilford, Forest Gate and Abbey Wood.
