Formerly a run down industrial area in the East End, Stratford is now one of THE places to live in London. With new investment ongoing it is an exciting and vibrant place to work and live. Our estate agents in Bow take a look at what has been happening. It is all good news.

Ongoing investment in the Olympic Village property development

Investment was kick-started by the impending Olympics in 2012. It is ongoing however and is set to continue until well into the mid 2020’s. The area has been regenerated and given a new energy. Investment is set to reach £22 billion by 2025.

The Olympics may have catapulted Stratford out of the starting blocks but the regeneration race is still ongoing.

There have been conversions, such as the former athletes’ residences in the Olympic Village which has been converted into many great rental properties.  The Here:East Complex is another triumph. This conversion of the former Olympic Park media center into office space has been very successful. It is also home to Plexal, which supports innovation and startup businesses.

Residential Regeneration in Stratford

Chobham Farm Masterplan are constructing over 1,000 new homes to keep up with the demand for property in the area. Higgins Homes are working on apartments and villas with fantastic homes ideal for families alongside couples and singles.

Stratford Works is located within the heart of Chobham Farm Masterplan and will be surrounded by beautiful landscaping and woodlands. It will be an idyllic place to live. Transport links are great, with Stratford Station less than ten minutes from Canary Wharf. The high speed Crossrail service is set to be ready to go in 2019 and will provide another incentive to live in the area.

This area is truly a community of great facilities, opportunity and growth.
