Stratford has recently benefitted from investments of more than £15bn, a growth in population equivalent to the City of Cambridge (131,000 people), and an estimated 62,000 new jobs from the Olympics and its legacy for Stratford City, Canning Town and Custom House, the Royal Docks and Beckton. As a result, this well-connected area has transformed into a new cultural quarter, offering the very best in shopping and entertainment facilities. Currently located in zone 3, Stratford is a ‘gateway’ to central London, Canary Wharf and the City, making Stratford Station one of the best connected transport hubs in the capital.

It also highlights its ongoing appeal as a new residential and commercial centre.
The regeneration of Stratford has been pivotal in driving growth and innovation across the City and residents of Stratosphere will enjoy living within a five minute walk of two of London’s newest and most impressive destinations – The Queen Elizabeth Park and Westfield Stratford City.
David Campbell, Group Sales & Marketing Director for Telford Homes comments:
“We are delighted with the sales success that we have seen at Stratosphere, a development which has generated exceptional demand due to the high quality build and unique design we have implemented as well as the abundance of amenities within Stratford. A significant proportion of the interest can be attributed to buyers who are looking to purchase a property in an excellent location with great investment potential. This is our third substantial tower building to launch in Stratford and we continue to view the location as the preeminent regeneration hotspot in the capital. ”
He adds: “The London 2012 Olympic Games significantly improved local transport links including its standing as a Zone 2 station from January 2016 in addition to new retail and leisure opportunities. This has attracted owner-occupiers and investors looking for well-located and premium residential property, transforming Stratford into a new metropolitan centre for London, and a leading hub for the east of London.”
