The Nine Elms area in Battersea - previously a wasteland of sheds and crumbling warehouses - has recently become one of the largest regeneration sites in Europe, with ambitious plans that eclipse the £9bn cost of the former Olympic Games site in Stratford.
At the very heart of this development lies Battersea Power Station. This iconic building will be the subject of an £8bn plan that will see the formerly derelict site linked to central London via the Northern Line and filled with shops, offices and luxury apartments. The project will also provide a new home for the American Embassy.
Once a downtrodden and neglected part of the capital, Battersea’s rise to glory began in the 1990s. Look along the riverfront now, and you’ll find stunning contemporary buildings designed by award-winning architects. Further inland, rows of Victorian terraces – once homes for railway workers and dockers - are now converted into ultra-fashionable homes.
As the next round of regeneration gathers pace, it has been predicted there will be an increased demand for flats to rent in Battersea. Short let apartments in particular are expected to prove popular with the army of skilled professionals – from architects to interior stylists and retail managers – required to create the vast Nine Elms development. Short-term lettings are also useful for people who want to get a feel for an area before committing to buy or rent long term.
A ‘short let’ is defined as an agreement to rent for a specific period: a week, a month or even longer. These properties are usually offered fully furnished, with all bills except telecommunications services included in the rent.
