300 homes in Glasshouse Gardens go on sale this week

Homes overlook the majestic Olympic Stadium.

More than 300 new homes located at the gateway to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will go on sale this week, announced Colliers International.

The new homes are part of the first phase launch of The International Quarter in Stratford by joint venture partners Lend Lease and London Continental Railways (LCR).

The residential development – named Glasshouse Gardens – will be developed by Lend Lease, an international integrated property and infrastructure group. Every home will benefit from its own private outdoor space, giving residents spectacular panoramic views across Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the City and Canary Wharf. Arranged across two tower buildings, the homes will range from one to three-bedroom apartments, and will feature open plan living and kitchen spaces. The homes will be ready for the first residents to move in in 2016.

Glasshouse Gardens forms part of The International Quarter, a joint venture between Lend Lease and LCR to deliver a £1.3bn (S$2.7 billion) commercial and residential development in Stratford.

Kristy Lansdown, Lend Lease’s Project Director, said: “Glasshouse Gardens will offer residents a unique opportunity to live amongst, and make use of, some of the world’s most elite sporting facilities where the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were held. Residents will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the London skyline and will benefit from the extensive transport network put in place for the London 2012 Olympic Games.”

“Stratford is now well on its way to becoming one of the most well connected and desirable places to live in London and we look forward to delivering these great homes in this exciting and vibrant part of the capital.”

David Joy, LCR’s Chief Executive, said: “Glasshouse Gardens at The International Quarter represents a chance to own a part of the Olympic Legacy and to live in a new part of London that is only going to thrive and grow as it develops. These early residents will be an integral part of one of the world’s most exciting new neighbourhoods and the benefits will be felt by all for many years to come”.

Glasshouse Gardens’ location makes it one of the best-connected places in London, said Colliers International. In addition to two tube lines - Central and Jubilee - there are also three rail networks, two bus stations and two DLR routes as well as the added benefits of Crossrail in 2019. Stratford is an eight-minute tube journey to the City, seven minutes to Kings Cross St Pancras and just 15 minutes to London City Airport, meaning residents will also be well connected to the rest of Britain as well as internationally.

The apartments will showcase the latest in sustainable building practices and innovation, Colliers International said. Each apartment will be constructed with the aim of maximising natural light and fresh air through the individual outdoor spaces. The buildings will also have green roofs for absorbing rainwater and providing insulation. These features will mean lower costs for residents via reduced heating bills due to improved insulation and reduced water bills through innovative fixtures.

Glasshouse Gardens will form part of a pipeline of more than 3,500 new homes which Lend Lease is currently delivering in Central London. Lend Lease has already begun work on another major regeneration site in Central London at Elephant & Castle. The £1.5bn (S$3.1 billion) regeneration will deliver 3,000 new homes and 160,000 sq ft of retail space as well as commercial and leisure space over the next 10 years. Lend Lease also won planning permission last year for two new sites at Battersea comprising 200 units at Cobalt Place and Victoria Drive respectively.

Glasshouse Gardens will officially launch on the 11th and 12th January at The Regent Hotel’s Boardroom II & III.
