Area Comments

Right across from Woolwich sits the spur of Newham known as North Woolwich. One of the most happily situated of Newham's areas, it's superbly placed to benefit from the amazing developments going on in London's property and development.

Despite the name, in many ways North Woolwich is more like its eastern neighbour Beckton and other areas of the true East End. It has a true old London feel, partly down to geography and architecture and partly down to its highly multicultural population. As government and private investment combine to improve local services throughout the East London region, a large proportion of the capital's inhabitants, forced out by price hikes closer to the city but not wanting to decamp completely to the true suburbs, are moving into the inner London areas.

In North Woolwich as elsewhere, this means an increase in the quality of local housing. In many cases the old tower blocks are being either removed, or retasked as more desirable upmarket housing and apartment initiatives.

What it hasn't led to is a decline in the attractive qualities of true East London - community, vibrancy, and variety. Here as elsewhere in the area, there are lots of different cultures and people, bringing the area a huge range of places to eat, excellent local shops. Added to this as investment in the area improves are better schools, better maintenance and social infrastructure, as well as drastically improved transport into the areas of London that the new inhabitants need to get to - which means, anywhere. The DLR's extension to King George V, and in 2009 will see an extension to North Woolwich itself. Everything is being done here, as all over the East End, to bring in the new, and keep the best of the old.

North Woolwich's properties are a heterogeneous bunch to be sure. As the declining fortunes of Britain's industry hit the docks, so its collection of riverside industrial buildings fell into disuse; these are not being allowed to go to waste any longer however, as riverside apartment blocks (new, well made and sensitively blended into the river's skyline) are going up all along the eastern end of the river. Away from the water, the area has excellent conversions, but mostly sees Victorian terraces of the kind that typify London generally and East London specifically. These range in size -generally going up to the four bedroom size - and many have good gardens and yards. With a wide range of styles and fittings, these present a huge range of opportunities for professionals, couples and families to live in a growing, developing, very typical area of London.
