Vastint UK launches largest phase of commercial at Sugar House Island
Sugar House Island’s latest and largest phase of commercial – Chimney Walk – launched this week offering 22,000 m2 primarily office space across three prominent buildings.
Chimney Walk offices and retail
The buildings sit at the gateway to Sugar House Island, fronting onto Stratford High Street, with the pedestrianised Chimney Walk to their south. The ground floor units will be occupied by a mix of café’s, restaurants, shops and services, activating the public realm along with a host of street food markets and seasonal outdoor events.
The offices are built with sustainability and employee well-being in mind. Each of the buildings has private and communal roof terraces for employees to use, supporting collaboration and relaxation. State-of-the-art cycle storage and repair facilities encourage green travel to work, and the contemporary changing and drying facilities make the journey in to work more comfortable than ever. Parking and electric vehicle charging points are also available.
Michael Cronin, Vastint UK; “We are thrilled to be launching this next phase of commercial at Sugar House Island following the success of Dane’s Yard, which is now over 90% let or under offer. Chimney Walk will deliver a host of brand-new collaborative workspaces to the east end property market. The launch follows some exciting new amenity arriving at the Island; Jim & Tonic opened their riverside bar, restaurant and gin distillery this summer as well as MARCHON Stratford and their state-of-the-art fitness facility. We’re excited to see what this next chapter brings for Sugar House Island and its growing community.“
Chimney Walk is named after the three restored industrial era chimneys that line the walkway. The chimneys which date back to the late 19th century, have been dismantled with their bricks cleaned in order for them to be re-erected in their original place. They provide an important nod back to the Island’s industrial heritage and act as prominent wayfinding markers.
The Three buildings named Type Building, The Ink House and Colour Works hark back to the print and ink industries which once operated here at Sugar House Island.
