Bow Green: City living surrounded by nature

Finding a development in London’s Zone 2, surrounded by five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, yet only minutes away from the bustling financial districts of the city, is a dream for many home buyers. Introducing a unique development, perfectly positioned between the City, Canary Wharf and Stratford yet surrounded by an abundance of nature on its doorstep.


Bow Green is the latest addition to East London’s growing popularity as a regeneration and residential hotspot where nature and city strike the perfect balance. With over 1,400 homes at the heart of this ambitious project, residents at Bow Green benefit from a range of upscale amenities and excellent travel links, all within a thriving green corridor of the capital.

A haven for nature lovers

Bow Green

Bow Green will feature an extensive residents’ garden planted with fragrant herbs like lavender, sage, rosemary, mint and thyme. Fruit trees will also include apple, plum, cherry, blackcurrant and many more, providing fresh produce to the development’s on-site restaurant, The Canopy. With new habitats for rare butterfly species, Berkeley plans to increase the site’s biodiversity by more than 60%.

Living in East London’s Golden Triangle

Bow Road Station

Situated in the heart of a triangle, formed by connecting three iconic London districts, residents of Bow Green will be well-positioned for a quick commute to work while enjoying the best leisure experiences in town. There are three stations within a short walk of the development. The Hammersmith & City Line and the District Line are accessible via Bow Road Station, Liverpool Street is just a couple of stops away on the Central Line from nearby Mile End Station. The DLR Line via Devons Road provides a quick journey to London City Airport. Canary Wharf is less than a 10-minute cycle ride away, while the Tube takes just seven minutes to the City, making Bow Green ideally suited to working professionals.

For a more physical workout, the fully-equipped gym will feature a boxing ring to aid sparring routines. Catering to diverse lifestyle choices, residents can pick a book from the Bow Club library, play a game of pool or enjoy an IMAX cinematic experience at the Garden Room.
