The construction of five new neighbourhoods, each with its own distinct character, will see up to 6,800 homes being built in the Park by 2030.
Planned around pocket parks and squares, and built to the latest standards of environmental sustainability, these neighbourhoods are being designed to rekindle the heritage of east London life, with its famous community spirit and vibrant cultural diversity, in homes that embrace and promote the most modern of living standards.
The first of these neighbourhoods, Chobham Manor, will start receiving residents in 2015. Situated in the north of the Park, bordering the green, open spaces, it will feature tree-lined avenues, intimate streets, mews houses and terraced homes with private gardens and open squares.
With family homes making up 70 per cent of the available housing, it will cater for Londoners who want to raise their children in a successful and safe community.
The five new neighbourhoods will cater for all the requirements of a growing family, providing play areas, schools, nurseries, community spaces, health centres and shops, with places to relax, play and exercise all within easy walking distance. And with 300 shops across the Park at neighbouring Westfield Stratford City, as well as restaurants, bars and entertainments including a bowling alley, casino and 17 screen cinema complex, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be one of the most desirable residential locations in London.
