Close to the City and a few steps from the water, it’s impossible to find another destination where brunch in Shoreditch, shopping in Stratford, and paddle boarding along the canal are Sunday morning options, all reachable in 20 minutes or less. With two tube lines passing through the station, nothing is more than a hop, skip and train away.
Rising up into this view is Leaside Lock, a new collection of contemporary homes, crafted with modern living in mind. Here, a new heart is coming to Bromley-by-Bow, beating with the personality of East London, but offering West End sophistication.
We’re one of the biggest housing and care providers in the country, with over 66,000 homes across the UK and over 140,000 customers.
We’re focused on improving people’s lives by building new homes and improving services, and we’ve been doing it for 130 years. We combine our deep heritage with our forward thinking ambition and commitment to sustainability. We recognise that the world around us is changing, and while our purpose will always remain the same, we’re constantly evolving to make sure we’re building energy-efficient homes that last for future generations.
The community we are building will also include workspaces, retail and leisure space and will enable us to participate in the delivery of a vibrant new neighbourhood.
The development at Bromley-by-Bow sits at the heart of the Greater London Authorities’ Stratford Opportunity Area. These new homes in Bromley-by-Bow, East London will form part of the most important regeneration schemes in East London since the Olympics.
Investment across the area is already underway, including support for the delivery of new schools and expansion of existing ones, the extension, and expansion of healthcare facilities, and new and improved access to the Lower Lea Valley.
Three Mills Island rests just behind Leaside Lock. With records dating back to 1086, these historic mills have made flour for bread, gunpowder for battles and gin for the city’s free houses. The tradition of local creativity lives on. The Three Mills studio today produces reels of iconic TV, film, music and theatre productions, which are shot moments away from Leaside Lock.
Inspired by this vivid past and the industrial red brick buildings so typical of the area, Leaside Lock features warm, clay facades. The palette is interspersed with towers of sage concrete that take influence from the mossy tones of the tidelines along the river’s edge.
Phase One has been designed by award-winning architects, Assael Architecture. These new additions to the skyline share a timeless, cohesive aesthetic with a strong family resemblance. At their centre, a tree-lined public square will create a bustling hub for pop-up markets, outdoor cinema screenings and connecting with neighbours.
Life at Leaside Lock is about balance. It’s a place where the every day is elevated and
lifestyle takes centre stage. Here, there’s something for everyone.
With a concierge* desk and convenience store downstairs, parcels are always signed for and the essentials are to hand. An energising workout in the gym** or meditation in the health and relaxation studio* can be followed by a freshly roasted coffee in the café. Enjoy an afternoon drink on the partially enclosed roof terrace†, available for all season use. For those who like to travel on two wheels there’s cycle storage available to residents on site.
Situated in London’s Zone 2 and opposite the underground station, journeys across London couldn’t be simpler – whether it’s to the City, Canary Wharf or the West End.
But that’s not even the best part. With innovative, flexible on site co-working spaces**, entrepreneurs and freelancers won’t need to travel at all. Not just an idyllic office set up, it’s a place to build connections with like-minded creators.
*Proposed amenity spaces correct at time of print (November 2021). * Gym is proposed (subject to a minor amendment to the planning approval which is currently with the local authority). Advanced discussions with an operator are taking place November 2021. †The roof terrace of Headwater Point B.
