Investment - This will change the fundamental, and allow your capital to grow.
Plumstead has a long and proud tradition. For centuries the area has been a key hub for a range of craft disciplines, from ceramics to leather work. Talented craftspeople flocked to the area to hone their trade and make a living.
This craft heritage has subtly evolved down the centuries. The 10th to 15th centuries saw plum cultivation across the orchards and commons of Plumstead. By the 16th century the growth of shipping and global exploration created a boom for ropemakers and shipbuilders around Woolwich dockyards.
By the 19th century the industrial revolution created opportunities for trades people of all kinds, including tailors and carriage makers. Meanwhile the 20th century saw a multitude of trades grow from strength to strength with the expansion of the Plumstead Common Mill, the Old Power Station and the Grand Store.
The Royal Arsenal, Woolwich originally known as the Woolwich Warren, carried out armaments manufacture, ammunition proofing and explosives research for British armed forces. As a result many craft workers working in the foundries lived and traded in nearby Plumstead.
Just a short journey from Lombard Square lies east London, an area rich in opportunities with a number of major new public projects set to be unveiled in the coming months.
A new powerhouse for innovation, creativity and learning on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Mayor of London’s £1.1 billion investment into East Bank is the most significant single investment in London’s culture since the legacy of the 1851 Great Exhibition.
Economy & Employment - Jobs and the general economy will give you the confidence needed.
Leathercraft, woodwork, tailoring & weaving, textiles, pottery and metalwork. Each of these six key craft areas has roots in the Plumstead area. Craftsmen plying these trades have lived in the area for centuries. That’s why we’ve taken inspiration from this heritage and dedicated each of the six houses in Lombard Square to its own unique craft discipline.
Plumstead itself is busily undergoing substantial regeneration, as is the rapidly developing area of Thamesmead and Woolwich.
Lombard Square will be a welcome addition to the already vibrant community of Plumstead and further enhance its great location and connectivity.

Chairman's Thoughts - Click to expand
"A great development that's seen plenty of growth"
We're very happy to be back in Kidbrooke for a simple reason: We've sold here before, so we know first hand what's achievable.
According to local agents, units here rent out very quickly, and tenants often stay in the properties for years, giving investors peace of mind without having to worry about void periods.
Naturally, this speaks to the award-winning and world renowned Berkeley Group as a developer, too. With an aim to complete each development to the highest standard, they really do attract the urban professionals many investors dream of.
Kidbrooke Village is located within a five minute walk to Kidbrooke station, and is an easily commutable distance to many of London's major employment hubs such as Canary Wharf (32 mins), London Bridge(21 min) and Moorgate (32) in the City. The 136 acre development is also close to several universities.
London City Airport is also around 40 minutes away, connecting residents not only to one of the most buzzing cities in the world, but the world truly is their oyster thanks to the great international connections virtually on their doorstep.
Thanks to our special relationship with BerkeleyGroup, stretching back the better part of a decade.We started selling units in Kidbrooke in 2010, and have seen how this development has benefitted our investors' portfolios. One great example is GeorgeLevy, who has seen amazing capital growth. Make sure to read the interview with him in this DDInvest.
