A cultural regeneration is expected across Stratford as the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, unveils a brand new £1.1billion vision for its continued transformation to reflect the successes of London’s South Bank.[i] His plans for the area include a new dance theatre, a University of the Arts London campus, and recording facilities for the BBC, bringing 2,500 new jobs to the area. House buyers looking to establish themselves early in a flourishing community that boasts a variety of exciting rewards should look to Bellway Homes’ vibrant new development, Legacy Wharf in Stratford, E15.
At the heart of the new planned cultural hub, Legacy Wharf residents will benefit from employment opportunities, world class venues, high speed public transport and parkland, as well as cultural amenities.
The contemporary apartments, convenient transport links and appealing location combine to make a great purchase for prospective first-time buyers.
Each home is complete with open-plan living, kitchen and dining spaces, a contemporary bathroom and a spacious balcony, some enjoying riverside views overlooking the Bow Back River. Residents will also benefit from the communal courtyard, located in the centre of the development, where they can socialise and relax in an outside space just outside of their front door.
Emma Hamlett, Sales Director at Bellway Homes, comments: “For potential purchasers looking for a fresh start, Legacy Wharf is a great opportunity to invest in the revived area of Stratford. With properties at such attractive prices compared to similar sized properties in neighbouring areas in London, the homes here offer a great base for all that the capital has to offer. With many employment opportunities available, along with easy access to a variety of leisure and retail conveniences, it really has everything needed for buyers who are looking to take advantage of the regeneration of Pudding Lane and the Mayor’s new vision for the wider area.”

Thousands of new, diverse employment opportunities are available thanks to the regeneration of Stratford, which includes a variety of jobs at venues like the London Aquatics Centre for swimming, and the Lea Valley VeloPark for cycling.
