Since the area’s industrial waterfront has been swept away, Battersea has undergone a significant transformation, characterised by public walkways, amenities and a host of apartment and commercial developments including the ambitious redevelopment of the decommissioned Battersea Power Station.
Aside from SW11’s great rail links from Clapham Junction – which is served by 2,000 trains a day – the area also has Queenstown Road and Battersea Park nearby. Plans are also afoot to extend the underground’s Northern Line to Battersea and Nine Elms by 2020. Any business located in SW11 is also just 45 minutes from London’s three major airports, with Gatwick Airport just half-an-hour away via the Gatwick Express.
After office hours, there is much to see and do in SW11. Battersea Rise, St John’s Road and Lavender Hill is very popular with young professionals with a raft of independent restaurants, bars and boutiques to sample along with the bustling Northcote Road’s posh market and pretty cafes. And with close proximity to the glitz and glamour of Chelsea and the West End, you’re close to all the action here.
