Area Guide


A guide to the local economy, industry and commercial property

Nestled on the River Thames and famous for the old industries that it used to serve, Wandsworth has enjoyed somewhat of a renaissance in the last 20 years.

Located in South West London, the borough is now extremely popular with families and singletons and its many new flats and developments are the perfect complement to the area’s larger houses, good schools and green spaces.

Now the seventh most expensive area to purchase homes in London, recent re-developments, such as that of the Ram Brewery site, have provided lots of possibilities for those seeking both residential and commercial property in Wandsworth.

With riverside walks, new homes, shops, cafes and restaurants, The Ram Quarter as it is known, will open up the banks of the River Wandle. Those looking to rent retail space or rent offices in Wandsworth will benefit greatly from developments such as this.

Part of Wandsworth’s development programme also includes plans to divert traffic from the busy A3 away from the borough’s high street.

Home to Clapham junction, one of the UK’s busiest train stations, Wandsworth is extremely well connected both by rail and road and those looking to rent offices, retail units, or warehouses in Wandsworth could benefit from its ideal location.

Properties available in the area range from Victoria and Edwardian to terrace houses and riverside flats. The Riverside Quarter is an example of a large development that has taken more than 15 years to complete but has all the makings of a iconic mixed-use site that will put Wandsworth on the map.
