Stratford Waterfront is in the heart of the south of the Park, next to the River Lea and between International Quarter London and the Park’s playgrounds and Pleasure Gardens. This is one of the three East Bank sites within the Park – the other two sites being near the ArcelorMittal Orbit and the London Aquatics Centre, and within the Here East campus in the north of the Park.
The ambitious project will bring together some of the world's most exciting education and cultural organisations, including the BBC, Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion, University College London and the Victoria and Albert Museum in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution. The project is expected to deliver 2,500 jobs, 1.5 million additional visitors to the Park and an estimated £1.5 billion of economic value to Stratford and the surrounding area.
Construction of this new housing is due to start on completion of the East Bank culture and education district work in 2023.
