Graffiti bearing the words, “These aren’t homes these are weapons in a class war” have appeared on the side of a luxury property development in Brixton.

Priced at £1,100,000 to £1,185,000, a sign on the scaffolding advertises the fact the development on the site of the old job centre will offer, “A boutique collection of 5 luxury contemporary houses and 3 large lateral apartments.”

Advertised for sale by Brixton’s most unpopular estate agents, Foxtons, their website offers more detail of what is in store for incoming millionaires:

These superb three bedroom houses offer exquisite living and entertaining accommodation over four interior designed floors with stylish décor and contemporary fixtures and fittings

For the very well heeled looking to profit from the housing boom, Foxtons is also offering a ‘bulk buy’ option. Which must be nice.

Meanwhile, in the real world, working families in Brixton continue to struggle to meet the demands of fast rising rents as gentrification continues to devastate the availability of actual affordable housing.
