As London begins to re-open and restrictions ease, there has been a surge of rental inquiries from people looking to buy luxury flats within zones 1 and 2. This has been an extremely positive shift in mindset for the Capital, as lockdown initially caused people to start looking further afield.
Additionally, according to the Knight Frank Wealth Report, we should expect to see at least a quarter of UHNWIs planning to invest in London property in 2021.
Here is a selection of some of the luxury flats for sale in London, which lie within the most desirable underground zones:
Greenwich Peninsula (Knight Dragon)
Spanning 150 acres and wrapped in 1.6 miles of the River Thames, Greenwich Peninsula is one of the largest urban regeneration schemes in Europe.

Fast becoming the capital’s most bold and modern landscape, it will create 15,000 new luxury flats, 13,000 new jobs, and 7 diverse new neighbourhoods. Furthermore, there will be new shops, restaurants, event venues, a new school, and an elevated cultural walkway – The Tide.
The latest of the seven neighbourhoods to complete is Upper Riverside, which introduces five striking new waterfront buildings to London’s iconic skyline. Together, the buildings offer homes with far-reaching river and city views and communal roof gardens, helping to create a new waterside social hub. Inside, the interiors of each of the five riverside towers have been created by different interior designers, including the talented Sophie Ashby and Tom Dixon. This, in turn, has allowed the private and social spaces to have their own distinctive character – offering a range of styles to suit all lifestyles and tastes among design lovers.
