West London comprises the western outer boroughs of London, including many areas once a part of Middlesex. Among these suburbs, villages, and towns, there have been multiple shifts in industry and commerce, with a current shift toward regeneration. In particular, the main boroughs of Ealing, Hillingdon, and Hounslow simultaneously serve travel and commerce.
West London is popular among travelers for being close to Heathrow Airport and transportation links. Still, there are many opportunities for investment property for sale in each borough. As the so-called “Queen of the Suburbs,” Ealing includes the central city’s Commons, Market, and shops for rent at Broadway and Arcadia Centres, as well as Acton’s travel accommodations and Southall’s Little India community. The westernmost borough of Hillingdon includes industrial Hayes, residential Ruislip, and the shopping and transportation hub of Uxbridge, with high-end shopping at The Pavilions. Although Hillingdon is one of the least densely populated boroughs, it has one of the largest economies thanks to several airlines’ headquarters and commercial property to let in Uxbridge Business Park. Last, Hounslow has sustained many of the factories that originally established the area around the old Great West Road, with Chiswick offering food and entertainment and Brentford centered new riverside developments of flats and offices to let.
Each of these boroughs includes a range of opportunities for developing commercial properties for sale. Ealing in particular provides more incentives for businesses to invest in office blocks for rent than any other West London borough and so is home to Park Royal industrial estate, which is the largest in Europe. With affordable rents and cost of living, West London is thus ideal for businesses just getting a start in creative and media-based industries, in particular.
