London is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world and has cemented itself as a cultural, entertainment and historical hotspot. Some of the housing options aren’t too bad, either. From converted period homes to shiny skyscrapers, luxury residential property is on offer in abundance in the capital and the stylings represent the city’s global status.

London’s high demand also means that new developments continue to pop up, adding to the skyline. Here are five of the latest luxury residential property developments in London that are worth keeping your eye on. 

1) Riverside Walk, Westminster

Homes with views of the River Thames are prime real estate in the capital, especially when they come in the form of an ultra plush development with high-end lifestyle amenities.

Apartments enjoy some of the best views over the River Thames, while on-site amenities come in the form of a 24-hour concierge service, gymnasium and a yoga studio that overlooks the river.

2) Chelsea Barracks, Chelsea

Another riverside development — this time in the prime postcode of Chelsea — Chelsea Barracks comprises 448 homes made up of apartments and townhouses.

Other benefits include a Grade II listed chapel and on-site lifestyle amenities such as a cinema room, billiards room, swimming pool and business suite. 

3) 40 Portman Square, Marylebone

Getting planning permission in London isn’t easy, which is why it’s even more impressive when a new residential development springs up just minutes from Oxford Street.

Developed by architects Squire and Partners, 40 Portman Square turns the exclusivity level up a notch with just 20 apartments, a garden square and interiors inspired by art from John Carter.

While it doesn’t feature on-site amenities, residents at Portman Square are located less than a five-minute walk from iconic shopping stores like Selfridges, as well as the world-famous Bond Street. 

4) Principal Tower, Shoreditch

One of the City’s latest landmarks, Principal Tower was designed by Foster and Partners and has 299 luxury apartments that feature sweeping views of the capital.

5) The Atlas Building, Hoxton

Designed by award-winning architects MAKE, The Atlas Building sits 40 storeys high and faces London’s famous Silicon Roundabout.
