A series of bold regeneration schemes has given East London a welcome new profile. It is now a major commercial and cultural hub and its proximity to both the City and Docklands means that corporate professionals are keen to rent in the area. Developers, Barrett have been quick to provide high quality accommodation that is close to quick and easy transport links and New Market Place is a prime example of their efforts.
Built on the site of an old East End market, the development consists of 227 one, two and three bedroom apartments that bring a touch of affordable glamour to the E6 postcode. Around it, the pedestrian walkways and buzzing street culture are a reminder of the area’s strong sense of community and inclusiveness. Split into six phases, each apartment has access to balcony or terrace space, overlooking attractive gardens and interconnected walkways. The interiors feature spacious, open-plan designs, modern appliances and large windows. Nearby are two major supermarkets: Sainsbury’s and Tesco Metro which are supplemented by a selection of independent shops on the High Street.
Residents are also within a short bus ride from the Westfield Stratford mega-mall which contains hundreds of luxury brands and excellent restaurants, all under one roof. East Ham Station is a Zone 3 stop on the District and Hammersmith & City Lines which run directly to the City (18 minutes) and the West End. Trains interchange at West Ham for the Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf, Stratford and the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail).
