'Garden Bridge' will cement the South Bank's cultural hub status, say south east London estate agents

SE1 is one of the most exciting postcodes in the capital and now buyers of property for sale in south east London have another reason to flock to the area. Planning permission by the relevant councils has been granted for one of the most ambitious projects to ever take place by the River Thames: the 'Garden Bridge'. Once funding has been confirmed, building work could start in December 2015, with the bridge open to the public by 2018. The new pedestrian bridge will span the river between the South Bank in SE1 and Temple in the borough of Westminster. At 1,214 feet long and more than 90 foot wide in places, the bridge will feature eight curved pathways linking five separate gardens, with over 270 trees from 45 different species and a number of shrubs and plants forming an urban flora and fauna oasis. South east London estate agents are delighted that such a monumental attraction and asset is planned for the South Bank, as it will cement the area's status as London's leading cultural centre, joining County Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal National Theatre and the Hayward Gallery, among others. The South Bank is no stranger to transformation and this latest venture is sure to enhance the area's appeal among buyers of property for sale in south east London. Although the bridge stops short of providing housing (previous incarnations of nearby London Bridge have featured dwellings actually on the bridge, dating back to early medieval times), areas that are close to the South Bank, such as Kennington and Surrey Quays, are set to gain a new audience. Winkworth already helps hundred of tenants and buyers looking for property for sale in south east London and we are anticipating an increase in activity with this announcement, especially from overseas buyers drawn to the South Bank's cultural riches, as well as second home owners seeking a London pad for social and business uses. If you are interested in property for sale in south east London, are thinking of renting a home in the SE1 postcode, or have a home in the area that you wish to have valued, please contact Winkworth today.
