ARTICLE: Barbican estate value soars

This recent offering from thespaces website charts the rise and rise of house prices in the iconic brutalist barbican - 'Brutalist beauty: the Barbican Estate’s value soars', in the last year alone it has risen by 10-15%! As the article charts there is a ready market for these flats with their very central location but mostly amongst British buyers, with there being a lack of foreign interest. One result of this has been the retention of original features and lack of radical alternation (which in the long run may also add to their price)
However, the Barbican was built for and has always catered for more exclusive residents unlike other brutalist schemes such as Balfron Tower which should be more of a concern.
