Premium views, high ceilings and large terraces; central London’s penthouse market has reached a staggering value of more than £1billion according to global real estate agents CBRE, thanks to the demands of increasingly affluent British and international real estate investors.
Research also confirmed that new-build penthouses located in central London developments accounted for up to a fifth of the gross development value (GDV) – in some cases achieving more than £4,000 per square foot.
On launching their first in-depth study on London’s penthouse apartments, Mark Collins, CBRE Head of Residential commented: “Penthouses of the quality on sale in London now cement our capital’s new status as a home-from-home for the super-rich as well as providing an invaluable store for their wealth.
“With the burgeoning volume of billionaires in the world and the increasingly international appeal of prime London real estate we anticipate that the penthouse market will continue to be a very exciting and elusive space going forward.”
A recent example is the launch of St George Central London’s Isis Penthouse Apartment at its Fulham Reach development, a luxury destination situated on a prime riverside location directly adjacent to the world famous Harrods depositary.
