These lettings are the latest in a wave of announcements for Dickens Yard, where Jigsaw and Gail's Bakery recently confirmed their opening in 2018, alongside popular Charlotte's W5, an innovative British restaurant, which opened 18 months ago.
Dickens Yard is a mixed-use development, centred around an elegant landscaped public square. With 700 new homes and 104,000 sq. ft. of restaurant, retail and leisure space, the development forms an important part of the transformation of Ealing town centre, ahead of the arrival of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) in 2018.
Craig Carson, Managing Director, St George West London, said: "We are delighted to announce a further strong line-up of brands to open at Dickens Yard. The openings will be a great boost to the lifestyle mix on offer in Ealing and we look forward to making further announcements in the coming months."
Alex Carr, Residential Development Partner at Knight Frank, commented: "These new signings are testament to the success of Dickens Yard as an exciting new lifestyle destination in West London.
"Knight Frank research shows that residential property prices around Crossrail stations have outperformed the wider market by an average of 7% along the whole line since the highspeed route gained Royal Assent in 2008.
"As the infrastructure project approaches completion, and becomes increasingly tangible, we anticipate that there will be an increased focus on Crossrail as the value of being in close proximity is truly realised.
"When looking at local residential values, average prices for homes within a 10-minute walk of Ealing Broadway station rose by 61% between July 2008 and the end of 2016- compared to average house price growth of a 43% in Greater London over the same timeframe."
