Time for your Wednesday dose of property perving with The Evening Standard's Homes and Property Editor Janice Morley.
Young Londoners are moving into urban villages and giving up commuting
It’s where the new houses are as well as the bars and clubs.
Areas like Shoreditch, Kings Cross and Victoria are no longer just places for businesses, but places to build a home.
Young Londoners especially, are trying to be rid of the commute all together to live a stones throw away from their place of work.
Prices in pretty villages in Essex and Berkshire set to soar
As the last bit of Crossrail gets underway, the biggest secret in investing in property comes down to our neighboring county of Essex.
With the new superfast Crossrail, commuting in and out of London will become quicker and more accessible. Already it is the quickest commute into London at the moment.
Prices are set to rise in the areas, but for the time being they are the cheapest in Essex than in any home county.
Who Designs London
Londoners don’t look up, well that’s what Janice thinks, but they may do once the new fabrics of everyday life in London are re-designed.
Two designers, best known for designing the Olympic torch,Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, have been commissioned to design parts of Crossrail.
It is a huge responsibility, as these designs will become part of commuters living and working life.
