Take 26 acres of historic London. Add intelligent design, creativity, sustainability, and a real sense of community. And you have Strand East, Stratford. We are taking this historic and near-derelict site and bringing it back to life as an energy-efficient, creatively designed, mixed-use neighbourhood. A place alive with the hustle and bustle of residents, retailers and local business people alike. Where mews-style townhouses sit comfortably alongside creative commercial space. Where beautiful public courtyards open up to piazzas. And waterways weave their way around hotels, restaurants, parks, water taxi piers and cycle paths. The plans will deliver 1,200 new homes (40% of which will be family oriented with three or more bedrooms) and 58,000 m² of space for businesses, including local shops, cafés, restaurants and other community facilities. What’s more, if clients visit from abroad they can conveniently stay locally, at the 350-room hotel.
