Wandsworth’s Ram Quarter development is located in the Young’s Brewery site, an iconic and historic area of SW18. We are very excited that this development is not only in the heart of one of the most popular areas of London, but also on the doorstep of one of our top performing office’s. Our lettings and sales team strongly believe that the high end apartments will become an intrinsic part of Wandsworth.
The Ram Quarter will consist of 650 flats across a 7.7 acre site and three phases. The first phase is likely to complete as of the 22nd December 2017 and is eagerly anticipated by the new residents and soon to be Landlord’s. The apartments will open to views of the river and outside will be new shops, restaurants and river walks.
The building names are, Draper’s yard, Langridge House, Shoreham Gardens, Wandle Gardens, and Copper Lofts – these will be 14 unique, loft style apartments in a beautifully restored Grade II listed brewery. We expect this development will help take Wandsworth to the next level and over time boost sale prices across SW18. With developments such as The Filaments, Riverside Quarter and Riverside West nearby, we anticipate Wandsworth to become one of the most popular areas for buyers and renters in SW London in the coming years.
The Ram Quarter is conveniently located by Wandsworth Town Station and East Putney Underground Station, therefore for those commuting into the city, your journey shouldn’t be longer than a manageable 30 minutes. For those who work outside of London, the A3 offers you an easy exit into areas county’s such as Surrey and Hampshire.
The development will incorporate a wide range of new shops and restaurants, however this part of SW18 already has Southside Shopping Centre which will be a short walking distance to your flat. Here you will find shops such as Topshop, Debenhams, WH Smith, Argos, Accessorize and Foot Locker. There is also a Cineworld and a range of restaurants such as Nando’s, Wagamamas, Five Guys and Byron Burger.
Socially, Wandsworth is known for its Young’s Pubs such as The Spread Eagle, The Brewer’s Inn and the Alma. There are a plethora of bars and clubs in Putney which is a mile away.
After huge success with new developments such as Eastfields Avenue and Knightley Walk over the last couple of years, we have a clear understanding of how it is necessary to be strategic when there is likely to be an influx of new apartments coming to market at the same time. We are advising our clients to be prudent with pricing and to aim for tenants that are looking long term. We will be trying to stagger contracts where possible to ensure that in 12 months’ time, the same flats aren’t coming onto market all at the same time. Therefore less common tenancy lengths such as 19, 20 and 21 months will be advisable.
My lettings department will also be offering a Ram Quarter Development discount on our fees due to the close proximity of the apartments to our office and the likelihood that our Corporate Services department will be heavily involved with finding tenants due to our contracts with companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon and BP.
