Those familiar with London will certainly know Ealing for its easy location with fast, convenient transport links. Ealing Broadway station connects the London Underground with the Central and District Line, and mainline services. Soon to open is the highly–anticipated Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) in 2021 which will bring about a game-changing transition in accessibility; reducing journey times across London by 50 percent – just 11 minutes to Bond Street, 14 minutes to Heathrow Airport and Canary Wharf financial district in under half an hour. Just 500 metres away from the Ealing Broadway station, you find one of the most thrilling new lifestyle quarters in West London. Filmworks, by St George, is so named to recall the golden era of service and cinema, with its centrepiece being the gorgeously restored Forum Theatre which was built in 1934 for cinema magnate Herbert Yapp. In total, Yapp had commissioned six cinemas to be designed by Stanley Beard – a specialist in cinema architecture. The Ealing one is the only surviving one of the period today with its historic art deco frontage preserved as part of this regeneration.
“Filmworks infuses a new dimension to Ealing’s enticing personality – it pays homage to the old Empire cinema’s historic façade, with a bold step into the now with a high-quality mix of apartments and a curated leisure district – a really exciting new destination for the capital,” says Dominic Heaton-Watson, Associate Director of Knight Frank Malaysia who holds the listing for Filmworks. “Business growth here is seriously impressive, with more VAT-registered businesses located here than anywhere else in West London.”
“So many factors merge to make it a sheltered harbour for investment; culture, heritage, language, a transparent legal system, education, undersupply of housing, ease of doing business and the list goes on. In this time with interest rates at very low levels, the costs of borrowing is very attractive, and will likely remain low for some time. Foreign investors will also have their pick of finance options with plenty on offer.”
