The reasons for needing a flat in London are varied - and what makes Silkworks uniquely positioned is that its price, design and location can satisfy most buyers. Silkworks sits on the doorstep of a neighbourhood bursting with possibilities. Located in the borough of Lewisham in London's Zone 2, Silkworks is 250 metres from Elverson Road DLR (light rail) station. From there, Canary Wharf is roughly 15 minutes away and the Bank tube station is less than half an hour from the development. Those with business or school on their minds will also appreciate the simple five-minute walk to Lewisham's mainline station, providing fast access to London Bridge in less than 10 minutes, Cannon Street in 14 minutes and Charing Cross in 17 minutes. Silkworks is just two stops to Maritime Greenwich, which is home to the oldest royal park, the world's largest maritime museum and the Royal Observatory. 'The Royal Observatory is one of the most significant historic sites in the world and houses Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian Line, which is the official starting point for each new day, year and millennium,' said James Talbot, a partner at King Sturge, St James Homes' international sole selling agent. Lewisham itself had an excellent feel to it, Mr Talbot said. With GBP250 million (HK$2.9 billion) earmarked for the borough's redevelopment, there is excitement in the air. It is expected that Lewisham will benefit from the regeneration by the time the Olympics come to London. Silkworks also benefits from being nearby the trendy cafe culture that exists in both Greenwich and Blackheath, with both offering vast green open spaces. The Lewisham property is more keenly priced than properties in those neighborhoods. 'It also has a trendy student feel through being very close to many universities and student populations,' Mr Talbot said.
