Situated on the doorstep of The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the East Village, London E20 is the first leading legacy neighborhood for London. Residents moving into this new neighborhood will enjoy living in one of the capital’s best-connected areas. Canary Wharf and the City can be reached in 12 minutes, the West End in 20 minutes and St Pancras station in just seven minutes, from which residents can travel to Paris and beyond.
The exciting new neighborhood will initially deliver 2,818 new homes, including 1,439 private homes mainly available to rent, and a further 1,379 affordable homes that will offer the choice of buying or renting to people with a range of income levels. The location offers residents easy access to an impressive range of amenities: 10 hectares of public space, over 30 small local shops, cafés and restaurants, and a well-equipped gym. Several buildings are completed and tenants started to move in during 2014.
Featuring inspired design from a number of the world’s leading architects, East Village is set to provide more accessibility, space, stability, security and world-class facilities than any other London residential development. All East Village homes are designed to reduce environmental impact and carbon emissions. Furthermore, all energy is produced locally through Combined Cooling Heat and Power Plants which reduces carbon emissions by 68% compared to similar residential developments.
It is being carried out by QDD; a joint venture between Qatari Diar and Delancey, and Triathlon Homes; a joint venture between First Base, East Thames Group and Southern Housing Group.
