Somewhat more affordable than some of the alternatives in the centre of London, and bordering the 73-hectare Gunnersbury Park, 213 studio and one- and two-bed apartments have been built by MSMR Architects, responsible for One Bishopsgate Plaza in the City of London. It is also just across the river from the world-famous Kew Gardens.Apt Living at Kew Bridge exterior_resizeCENTRE POINT RESIDENCES

The 1960s Centre Point tower stands on the junction of New Oxford Street and Charing Cross Road, and is one of the city's early high-rises. The original design was by Richard Seifert and used prefabricated structural components to form a distinctive exoskeleton and a design classic. Conran and Partners is in charge of its transformation that will include a range of residences, among them a 675sqm (7,200sqf) duplex apartment.Centre Point Tower, façade detail © Luke Hayes (3)ONE CROWN PLACE
Malaysian infrastructure specialist MTD Group's One Crown Place, on the border of oh-so-trendy Shoreditch and the City of London, is designed by KPF (Kohn Pedersen Fox) with a collection of residences by interior designer Sophie Ashby. A Georgian terrace dating back to the early 19th century will also be transformed into a 41-room boutique hotel.OCP_Sophie Ashby Collection_Kitchen_1 (Photo Credit Focus Studio)CHELSEA WATERFRONT
Not many addresses come more prestigious than Chelsea. Right on the Thames as the name suggests, Chelsea Waterfront has been master-planned by Sir Terry Farrell and comprises two glass residential towers of 25 and 37 storeys, three other riverside buildings and landscaped gardens.Chelsea Waterfront Towers
