In order to hold onto and maximise investment in UK property it is important to consider the social changes in society. The UK is becoming increasingly multicultural; for the property (and other) markets it is essential to profit from this.
Property will have higher value if they are near a hub or central point; Canary Wharf is an example how the construction of One Canada Square and the surrounding infrastructure has created an niche, highly invested property market. Though the construction of large projects isn't an short term and easily applicable solution the concept hold value.
Therefore, I propose to create lots of market places that specialise in foods and delicacies of a particular culture that is dominant in the area; in turn this will attract people who originate, associate or are enthusiastic about the particular culture.
Eventually families and communities will live in its vicinity for convenience; over time the market place no longer needs to be the hub- as the area has a thriving economy and an ever increasing investment into properties.
