Onwards and upwards

It is boom time in Hammersmith. Just take a look around and marvel at the number of new developments set to grace the skyline.

The tallest of the lot is Sovereign Court. Being built in Glenthorne Road, it will boast 418 new flats and over 5,000sqft of commercial space, complete with a new underground car park.

The developer, St George, says the ‘contemporary apartments’ respond to new ways of living locally, boasting a 24-hour concierge and a fitness centre.

On the other side of Hammersmith Bridge, developer St George is also about to complete one of the largest residential developments in the area at its Fulham Reach site.

Spread over seven acres, the scheme sees 750 new flats being built – from those aimed at first-time buyers at a 30 per cent discount to rooftop penthouses that will cost millions – which will connect parts of the footpath alongside the riverside for the first time.

Residents of Fulham Reach will enjoy a gym and spa, virtual golf simulator, a snooker room and a wine cellar.

On the western side of town, the Grade II-listed refurbishment of the former Masonic Hospital near Ravenscourt Park is turning heads.

Called Ashlar Court, the 68 art-deco inspired one, two and three-bedroom flats from developer Linden Homes range from £599,995 to £1.3million, and will also boast the ever-popular concierge and subterranean parking.

Two detached houses are also being built on the site, with anticipated asking prices of £1.4m.

And across King Street sits St Peter’s Place, boasting one-bedroom flats and three and five-bedroom family homes, ranging in price from £625,000 to £3m.

Designed in a traditional Regency architectural style, each home has private outdoor space, either in the form of a terrace or balcony, and are designed for open-plan living.
