HONG KONG, 9 January 2024 – Named by TimeOut as the world’s best city for 2024, London is a truly iconic location. Visitors flock to the city from across the globe – and so do property buyers. Land Registry data shows that foreign individuals and companies own £84.2bn worth of property across England and Wales, including 103,425 properties in London.

Overseas buyers currently seeking a home in London, whether as an investment or for personal use, will reap the rewards of the monumental programme of regeneration in Brentford, West London at Kew Bridge Rise. Situated in one of London’s most scenic neighbourhoods and prime business districts, the apartments launch in January 2024 and will be showcased to buyers in Hong Kong by award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group and JLL at the Victoria 22, 22/F, Sugar+, 25-31 Sugar St, Causeway Bay between 18th and 21st January 2024. 

Created by Hill as part of a joint venture with L&Q, Kew Bridge Rise delivers a spectacular living experience in a highly sought-after West London location. Occupying a prime London site in the heart of newly regenerated Brentford, the development will create a new neighbourhood with five buildings of up to 18 storeys, including a new public square, a nursery and commercial space. Less than a five-minute walk from River Thames and nestled in leafy Gunnersbury Park, once owned by the Rothschild family, the development’s exceptional location ensures owners have the very best of London’s parkland on their doorsteps. The lush local greenery includes the stunning floral displays at Chiswick House and Gardens, 40 acres of deer-filled woodland at Richmond Park, Osterley Park’s country estate and the world-famous Kew Gardens. The leafy streets of Kew, Chiswick and Richmond also feature plenty of cafes, riverside pubs, independent boutiques and fine dining options.

Alex Carr, Senior Director at JLL, Residential Development: “Kew Bridge Rise offers a unique balance of urban living, historical significance, natural beauty and convenient access to central London, which makes it highly desirable for owner occupiers and investors alike. Brentford is one of London’s most exciting and fastest-growing neighbourhoods which is unsurprising with its abundance of beautiful parks and open spaces including the famous Kew Gardens itself. As well as offering many high-quality schools and universities, it is also a flourishing employment hub and home to global names such as SKY and Disney. Chiswick Park, a business media and communications campus is situated close by, hosting the regional headquarters of companies such as Singapore Airlines and Pokémon. The area is currently seeing high levels of growth and the flurry of educational opportunities and business acumen makes it perfect for families, students and workers alike.” 

“Rental yields at Kew Bridge Rise are anticipated to reap excellent rewards so it’s easy to understand why people are driven to choose this area as a permanent residence or as a fantastic investment opportunity.”

At the heart of all this sits Kew Bridge Rise, home to distinguished apartments ranging from studios to spacious three-bedroom homes, with exclusive access to exquisite amenities. Each high-specification home features private outdoor space – a balcony or winter garden – while the sophisticated, nature-inspired interiors provide a chic retreat from urban life. Full-height glazing ensures light washes across the white ash Amtico flooring and stylish furnishings of the opulent living rooms, beautifully designed to promote relaxation or refined entertaining. This quality continues throughout the homes with details including soft close hinges and subtle underside feature lighting in the kitchens and bathrooms. Timelessly beautiful bedrooms provide a luxurious haven, with fitted wardrobes and ensuites to principal bedrooms as standard.

Beyond the individual homes, Kew Bridge Rise delivers two beautiful, podium-level gardens and an attractive public plaza. Promoting an aspirational lifestyle, there is also a state-of-the-art gym, a co-working space and an on-site concierge to provide residents with attentive assistance.

One of the many charms of Kew Bridge Rise is how comprehensively it unlocks access to the rest of the capital. The development is just two minutes’ walk from Kew Bridge Station and approximately 900 metres from Gunnersbury Overground and District Line stations. Between them, these deliver swift services to Clapham Junction (in 14 minutes), South Kensington (20 minutes) for some of London’s finest museums and other famous locations including Battersea (20 minutes), Vauxhall (22 minutes), Waterloo (29 minutes) and Piccadilly Circus (33 minutes). For overseas travel, Heathrow Airport is a 12-minute drive away.

For international buyers looking to relocate to London with their families, Kew Bridge Rise will be home to a highly respected nursery and there is also easy access to a selection of esteemed educational establishments. There are three Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ nursery and primary schools within a 20-minute walk of the apartments, a ‘Good’ secondary just 100m away and two ‘Outstanding’ secondary schools within a 5km radius. For university-age students, Imperial College London and the University of West London, ranked respectively as the second and eighth-best universities in the capital, are under 5km away.

Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director at The Hill Group, comments: “Together with our partner L&Q, we look forward to realising our vision for this transformative project. The exceptional location enjoyed by Kew Bridge Rise, makes it ideal for property buyers from overseas who are seeking a premium London investment property, main home or second residence. London’s property market holds major appeal for overseas buyers, with the UK delivering economic and political stability that attracts interest from around the world.”

A leisure centre with a pool next door to Kew Bridge Rise and several golf courses, including Wyke Green Golf Club, Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club and Richmond Park Golf Course, mean that owners are spoiled for choice when it comes to keeping fit and active. The local area is also packed with independent boutiques and delis, particularly around Chiswick High Road, which is just a six-minute cycle ride from the development.

Kew Bridge Rise offers international buyers the prospect of an elevated lifestyle in a city steeped with history and desirability. To find out more, join Hill and JLL at Victoria 22, Hong Kong, between 18th and 21st January 2023.
