The unique footage has been created to showcase Sugar House Island and the surrounding area which has changed dramatically in recent years.

The bird’s camera captures the City of London, Canary Wharf and Docklands nearby, showing just how close these areas are to Sugar House Island. It also showed the ancient waterways and canals immediately next to the development site which lead into the River Thames.

Vastint UK’s MD Andrew Cobden said: “We wanted to come up with a different way of showing what we’re doing here at Sugar House Island because we feel the development is so unusual. Most schemes use drones to film this sort of thing but we thought this would be a more interesting way to see the area from the skies – a genuine bird’s eye view.”

The regeneration project of this historical part of east London will see the creation of 2,500 new jobs along with interesting new office space and homes. The development is set to offer space at half the price of districts such as Shoreditch, Farringdon and Holborn. The first phase of Sugar House Island is a collection of eight historic and new office buildings in a conservation area which are targeted at the creative industries. Vastint chose to commission the film as an innovative and eye-catching way of showing off the area to potential London businesses and residents.

This film was picked up by The Evening Standard and Mail Online.
