Taylor Wimpey plans record London volumes

Housebuilder unveils biggest ever project pipeline in the capital this year

Taylor Wimpey Central London will deliver its highest ever volumes in the capital this year as it focuses on capturing anticipated demand outside the super prime market.

The housebuilder expects to deliver over 400 new homes in central London boroughs this year with a wide ranging mix.

Taylor Wimpey Central London managing director Ingrid Skinner said:  “As a business we are looking to extend our reach within those boroughs that offer a combination of established desirability and potential for growth, as well as getting involved in the redevelopment place-making of some of the capital’s most up and coming districts.

“This offering creates an attractive package for home owners and investors alike. We have a diverse pipeline of fantastic projects that will enable us to extend the group’s operational aims and to bring more homes to the market than ever before in key areas of central London in 2012 and beyond.”

Schemes currently under construction or with planning permission include projects in West Hampstead, Tufnell Park, Islington, Newham and Lewisham; with further developments planned for Greenwich, Kensington and Camden.

Ms Skinner added:  “These well-specified homes range from studio apartments to large family houses, with prices from £550 per square foot to £1,200 per square foot. We will continue to add to our land portfolio over the coming years where we see attractive opportunities.”
