EcoWorld International Berhad (EcoWorld International) offers international investors an attractive opportunity at Verdo-Kew Bridge, in the up-and-coming Kew Bridge area.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Brexit issue, London has remained the top destination for Asian capital, said CBRE in a report on March 7 2019. Investors from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Korea accounted for 85% of investment activities in the metropolis in 2018.
According to CBRE, about 18% of total Asian outbound capital was poured into London real estate investments last year, compared to 9% into Hong Kong and Shanghai respectively, and 4% into Frankfurt.
London therefore retained its position as the top city for global real estate investment in 2018, followed by New York and Paris, said JLL in its report in January 2019.
Alternative to prime London
One of the main attractions for both locals and international visitors to London is Kew Gardens. Located in West London, Kew Gardens, formally Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew is a designated Unesco World Heritage site and contains a series of gardens covering more than 120 hectares, including, the Kew Palace and Queen Charlotte’s Cottage, - the hereditary properties of Queen Elizabeth II.
Syon house (pictured), and its 200-acre park, Syon Park is in West London and is a 15-minute drive from Verdo.
Kew Gardens is situated in the Kew area in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, coveted by affluent families owing to its rich history, top schools as well as proximity to parks and gardens. Last year, overall prices in Kew averaged £924,168, up 14% from the previous year, and on a par with average house prices in 2015, according to Rightmove price data.
Just across the River Thames from Kew, is the Kew Bridge area. House prices there averaged £479,187 last year, according to Rightmove transaction data. This is almost half of the average house prices at Kew.
