King’s Road remains the major artery through Chelsea and a very busy road, despite its continuing reputation as a shopping mecca, it is now home to many of the same shops found on other British high streets and is quickly catching up with Bond Street as one of London’s premier shopping destinations, housing a variety of high-end fashion or jewelry boutiques such as Cartier, Tiffany & Co, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, Harrods, Dior and Louis Vuitton to name but a few.
From 2011, Channel 4 has broadcast a reality television show called Made in Chelsea, documenting the “glitzy” lives of several young people living in Chelsea. Moreover, Chelsea is home to one of the largest communities of Americans outside of the United States, with 6.53% of Chelsea-residents being born in the United States.
Cadogan have submitted a comprehensive planning application which is widely supported by local residents to redevelop 192 – 222 Kings Road (the site of Habitat on the corner of Chelsea Manor Street), to include the construction of a two storey basement, to provide new buildings containing residential, retail, office, cinema and pub/bar floor space. The proposal also relates to Hemus Place, with associated servicing and landscaping to the whole site which is likely to enhance value of properties in the location.
There are also major upgrades proposed to the local transport links with the planned Chelsea tube station on the Chelsea-Hackney line (also known as “Crossrail 2”). There are currently two sites earmarked, both of which are within close proximity of Chelsea Manor Street. The line is currently considered the fourth major rail project in the capital after the Thameslink programme, East London Line extension and Crossrail 1.
