The Surrey town of Camberley is currently in the midst of a £300 million regeneration programme, with its residents set to reap an array of rewards from the redevelopment within the next few years. From the modernization of retail spaces to the addition of new art installations across the town, Camberley is being transformed into an up-and-coming, vibrant place to live. Located right in the heart of the town’s regeneration, award-winning developer Berkeley’s striking collection of contemporary apartments at Lumina pose an exciting opportunity for prospective homebuyers looking to invest into the town’s transformation, and benefit from the predicted 17% price growth forecast expected for homeowners by 2025.
Despite apartment prices in the area being 19% below the Surrey average per square foot – making Camberley one of the most affordable destinations in the county – residents at Lumina are able to benefit from a range of amenities right on their doorstep, including the variety of improvements being made to the town centre. The Square shopping centre, just a three-minute walk away, is being reinvigorated as part of the regeneration into a brand new leisure and entertainment destination, containing around 100 shops and cafes. Alongside this, Camberley’s High Street has been awarded a £3.5 million grant to improve the roads and pavements, as well as the installation of public art, walkways and public seating within the town. Residents are also set to benefit from a brand new multi-million pound leisure centre, which will include wellness facilities such as a swimming pool, climbing wall and gym.
Ben Annetts, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Homes Southern, comments: “We are thrilled that the regeneration of Camberley currently being undertaken is transforming the area into a thriving retail and residential hub. Regeneration areas always tend to be popular with prospective homebuyers due to the opportunity for price growth, and the range of high-quality and brand new facilities available in the area.
