The reopening of St Pancras Station is great news for property investors...
St Pancras and Ebbsfleet International (close to Dartford & M25) stations open for the Eurostar train service this month. You probably saw the Queen at the official launch earlier this week on the news.
The really big investor news behind the headlines is that from 2009 commuter services will run at 140mph between Ashford (new journey time of 40 minutes), Ebbsfleet, Dartford (new journey time of 15 minutes to St Pancras) and St Pancras bringing Kent much closer to the City.
30 Hitachi bullet trains have already been purchased to deliver massively improved commuter train connections to Kent along the same tracks that the Eurostar trains will run to Europe on. This Government led investment will be a major boost to the Kent economy and a key driver behind local house price growth over the next decade.
Incito Property are always looking for future hot spot investment locations and are strategically exploiting this kind of once in a generation transport infrastructure investment whenever possible for our clients. The booming population in Kent and these integrated transport investments mean capital growth prospects over the next 5-10 years are excellent in all the locations serviced by the new 140mph trains.
NOW, is the last chance to invest in St Pancras, Dartford and Ashford before the new International stations open...benefiting from Phase 1 regeneration growth.
