Transport: Streatham Hill Railway Station is one of three stations servicing the district of Streatham. There are two other stations located at Streatham Common and Streatham Hill, all offering excellent connectivity to the city of London and surrounding areas.
Streatham Common: A large public open green space with local nature reserve. The perfect place for dog walking, jogging and picnics. The land was formally owned by the Streatham Parish. The famous architect Thomas Ripley built and lived at 10 Streatham Common Court, the building is now known as Ripley House. Henry Tate, founder of the Tate Gallery and the Tata & Lyle sugar company lived at Park Hill by the common.
Streatham area Improvements: Back in 2011 the Mayor Of London selected Streatham as an area for regeneration using the outer London fund. Streatham was awarded a total of £1.9 million from the fund and a further £1 million from Lambeth. The money was spent on improving the streets and public spaces within Streatham. This also included freshening up shops fronts and signage. Streatham library received a fully refurbishment and the Tudor Hall was brought back to life as a performance space. Famous attractive buildings and monuments received new lighting to help improve the overall attractiveness of the area. A huge regeneration project was carried out and involved demolishing the Streatham Ice Arena, Streatham Leisure Centre and the former bus garage, which were replaced by a new Leisure Centre and Tesco store and 250 apartments.
