Peabody, one of London’s leading housing associations, will be launching a new waterside development, Bridge East, on Wednesday 25th July.

Located in the vibrant Zone 2 hub of Stratford, the modern development comprises five two-bedroom apartments, all available through Shared Ownership. Nestled between the Bow Back River and the River Lea, Bridge East promises a refreshing lifestyle with nearby picturesque waterside walks accessible amongst the hustle and bustle of East London’s energetic scene. With prices starting at £135,000 for a 30 per cent share of an apartment, properties at this brilliantly connected scheme are anticipated to be snapped up quickly by first-time buyers.

Being just a six-minute walk away from Pudding Mill DLR station makes Bridge East the perfect commuter hotspot for those working in the City or Canary Wharf. The development is also a 10-minute bus ride away from Stratford Underground, connecting residents to all corners of London via the Central and Jubilee line, along with Overground, DLR and National Rail services. Additionally, Bromley-by-Bow and Bow Road stations are also a short cycle ride away, offering access to District and Hammersmith & City lines. These prime transport options link residents to Central and West London and further afield, making Bridge East accessible to London. As of 2019 the brand-new Crossrail line will be operational – expanding the accessibility of the area even more via Stratford.

Bridge East is perfectly positioned in East London. Close enough to central to reap the City’s benefits but separated to enjoy the abundance of nearby waterways and open spaces, residents can relish the best of both worlds. Some of the most desirable and sought-after neighbourhoods in East London at Victoria Park Village and Hackney Wick are just minutes from Bridge East. The local offerings consist of a whole range of amenities, from local supermarkets to clothing shops, a gym for fitness fanatics and a vast range of restaurants for foodies – all within arm’s reach of the development.

In addition to the immediate local area, Stratford also has a lot to offer - just minutes away is the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium where residents can choose to attend one of its many events or go for a swim in the same pool that hosted the Olympic gold medallists.  Westfield Shopping Centre is also close by for residents to shop, dine, bowl and relax.

“We’re delighted to continue to provide achievable homes across all parts of London. This small but unique offering can really give residents an exciting lifestyle with all its surrounding amenities. Bridge East is also very well connected, which is a strong selling point. There’s only five apartments available, and we predict them to be snapped up quickly – potential buyers should register their interest straight away in order to be in with a chance to secure one of these stunning apartments.” Andrew Peglau, Head of Marketing at Peabody.
