Heathrow hub to connect West Drayton

7th October 2009 Print
 Heathrow hub to connect West Drayton A new £4.5bn scheme which would extend high speed continental rail link to the north of England via a huge new transport hub at Heathrow looks set to benefit residents and investors at Parkwest, the latest development by St George in London’s Heathrow Quarter just 2 miles north of Heathrow Airport.

The proposal means that St Pancras International would be directly connected to Heathrow Airport, where a large “hub” would be built connecting the airport to other existing lines. The hub would also open up Heathrow to the rest of the national rail network and it is anticipated that the Crossrail trains, which feature as part of the West Drayton line to Paddington, will also stop at the hub; making Parkwest perfectly connected for the future. Construction of the mainline station would include 12 platforms built between the existing West Drayton station, which is walking distance from Parkwest, and Iver Station. A twin 24km high speed track built in tunnels would then join the existing high speed line at King’s Cross St Pancras.

Parkwest is already set to benefit from the Crossrail network as the multi-billion pound plan that will see trains travelling from West Drayton, straight through Central London and out to Essex, was recently given the green light by Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Some analysts believe the arrival of Crossrail could mean a 10 per cent increase in house prices in areas on the route, which would benefit purchasers at Parkwest with homes in the development currently being sold off plan as investors, first time buyers and owner occupiers look to take advantage of the future regeneration in the area.

Ian Dobie Managing Director of St George West London said, “News of the proposal to build a rail hub at Heathrow has to be good news. With the development of Heathrow’s Terminal 5, the recent approval of a 3rd runway at Heathrow, the announcement of Crossrail, together with the regeneration of West Drayton, investors and owner occupiers are looking at this part of West London with a renewed enthusiasm. The benefits of developments such as Parkwest in such well connected transportation hubs, are that they make extremely attractive investment propositions with great potential for excellent capital growth. Parkwest will certainly be a most accessible national and international address! ”

The exciting product range at Parkwest includes the contemporary Manhattan Apartments and the versatile Duet Apartments which make sharing easy – offering two identical master bedrooms both with en-suite and their own balcony. For the even more discerning purchaser there is a collection of stunning penthouses. These exceptional 3 bedroom split level apartments are situated on the top floor of the building offering superb panoramic views of West London as well as a huge amount of versatile space. Residents also benefit from their own private gym and a 24/7 concierge facility.

Parkwest is in a superb location for commuters, students, and international travellers alike. The M4 and M25 are just a couple of miles away, as is Heathrow – the world’s busiest airport. Nearby Stockley Park is one of Europe’s largest commercial centres and houses companies such as Apple UK, BT, Cisco, Marks and Spencer, Sharp and Hasbro. For the more active there is also a Virgin Active Gym and an 18 hole golf course close by.

Prices for an apartment start from just £194,950*
