New homes completed in Leaside Lock development
The riverside community is being delivered by The Guinness Partnership and development manager, Danescroft
Long Harbour, a specialist real estate investment, development and management firm, announces the practical and financial completion of a 204-unit BTR development or ‘Phase Two’ of Leaside Lock, the new riverside development in the heart of Zone 2, East London.
The new 28-story tower, known as Riverstone Heights, will offer a collection of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments in Zone 2’s Bromley-by-Bow, and will welcome its first residents in the spring.
It will be managed in-house by Way of Life, an award-winning BTR consumer platform. Long Harbor will also deliver 13,000 square-feet of shared amenity space, including a co-working space and rooftop terrace.
Riverstone Heights uses sustainable modern methods of construction with the entire façade prefabricated off-site. The concrete panels and windows, already being in-situ, paved the way for a rapid build with limited material waste and transport requirements.
Overall, the scheme has achieved Planet Mark certification and will consistently target high ESG and GRESB ratings by Way of Life.
Leaside Lock is a key part of the ongoing regeneration of the Olympic Park area, led by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), which benefits from excellent transport links, with the whole of central London within easy reach, including commercial hubs like Stratford and Canary Wharf.
The development is just a short walk from the River Lea, surrounded by independent shops and bars and near to popular attractions such as Westfield and well-known creative hubs such as Hackney Wick and Here East.
The Leaside Lock development is being delivered by The Guinness Partnership, one of the largest providers of affordable housing in England, alongside development manager Danescroft.
It will deliver a total of 965 new homes in Tower Hamlets, half of which will be affordable.
