HONG KONG, February 26, 2018 – By 2025, it is estimated that £22billion will have been invested into regenerating Stratford to create more than 35,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs. The transformation of the area has been taking place since the Olympic Games of 2012 to include Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a vibrant new Westfield Stratford City and the redevelopment of Royal Docks. Now homebuyers wanting to invest in the future of the area should look to Legacy Wharf by Bellway, a new development launching this Spring. The company has appointed JLL as the sole agent in Hong Kong.​

The contemporary development of one, two and three-bedroom apartments have been designed to appeal to a variety of buyers, including young professionals, first-time buyers and families. All properties are set in a cosmopolitan waterside setting offering open-plan living, integrated kitchen appliances and balconies. Residents will also benefit from a concierge service, an on-site gym and landscaped communal courtyard with a play area for children.​

Emma Denton, Sales Director Designate at Bellway Homes, comments: "Homebuyers will have a great opportunity to invest in this revamped area of Stratford at Legacy Wharf. The homes here offer a great base for all that London has to offer. The location has some of the best transport connections in London including fast connections to the capital, and internationally with City Airport only a 12-minute journey away. Trips abroad will be even faster with the introduction of Crossrail, making every London airport reachable in only 60 minutes, from this development.​

"With committed regeneration projects still underway, the London Borough of Newham is set to be the new heart of London and all set with in London's newest cultural quarter. This is an exciting time to live in East London, we would encourage potential buyers to register their interest as soon as possible."​

As the famous hot spot for shopping, Stratford also hosts Westfield Stratford City, which is said to be the largest urban shopping and leisure destination in Europe. Only 1.2 miles from Legacy Wharf, residents will benefit from a selection of over 250 shops, 65 restaurants and a 17-screen, all-digital Vue Cinema. For popular cultural venues, there is the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Stratford Circus Art centre and Roof East, a cinema on top of a multi-storey car park.​

Active residents will particularly enjoy the premium facilities at the nearby Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with the London Stadium, London Aquatics centre for swimming, Lea Valley VeloPark for cycling, the Lea Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, and the Copper Box Arena gym and sports hall. Just a five-minute bike ride from Legacy Wharf, Victoria Park offers one of London's oldest public spaces.​

For professionals working in the capital, Pudding Mill Lane Train Station is a two-minute walk from Legacy Wharf, with Crossrail services through Central London due to stop through from late 2019, the development is even more appealing for these fast connections to the centre of the capital and beyond. Major roads are easily accessible, including the A11, A12 and A13, and for domestic and international air travel, City Airport is only five miles away via the A12.

Ideal for families, well-regarded schools close to the development include Carpenters Primary School and Old Place Primary School, as well as London Science School and Bow School for secondary-age pupils. For further education, Newham College is two miles from the development, and Tower Hamlets College is approximately three miles away.​
