    East Village

    East Village E20 is the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village on the doorstep of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, offering high-quality homes in the UK’s largest Private Rented Sector neighbourhood.

    East Village is a vibrant neighbourhood with outstanding transport connections, attracting residents of all ages and interests with its unique offering of retailers, events and community activities. Voted ‘Development of the Decade (Large Development)’ at the 2016 RESI Awards, the 67-acre neighbourhood includes the OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ Chobham Academy for students aged 3-18; a state-of-the-art NHS health centre; and more than 25 independent shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. 1,921 homes are let and managed by Get Living, the UK’s leading owner-operator of private rental homes.

    A further 1,500 new homes are planned, including 524 that have recently been constructed and 472 that are currently under construction. In 2019, through the Inspiring Communities Fund and other initiatives, we committed more than £50,000 to local community groups, supporting a range of projects under the themes of Health and Wellbeing, Communities and People and Arts and Culture. An East Village community space opened in April 2019; ‘The Hall’ runs free or ‘pay what you can’ sessions running seven days a week; from Girl Guides and playgroups to yoga and boardgame groups. Since opening, The Hall has welcomed more than 6,500 people participating in sessions, with almost half of those under 18.

    Here East

    Here East is a catalyst for growth and an innovation campus that is home to London’s fastest-growing sectors and businesses within London: esports, cybersecurity and the creative sectors. Here East curates a highly collaborative community of start-ups, creatives, academics and corporates, and deploys its innovation consultancy, Plexal, to trial new technologies set to define the future. The 1.2 million-square foot campus is arranged over three buildings and is home to over 4,500 academics and innovators. The campus is designed to foster work, allowing tenants to work, scale and grow at pace.

    Here East is made up of three buildings and features a landscaped Canalside with artisan cafes, restaurants and shops and has a shared yard area for outdoor meetings, community enlivenment and events. Here East works closely with its tenants and local borough employment agencies to maximise opportunities for local people. A dedicated Community Manager works with tenants and partners to promote opportunities, shape education programmes and provide skills training to get more local people into work and improve the talent pipeline for those companies on the campus.

    Watch this short video by the International Olympic Committee, to see how Here East has played a central role in the London 2012 Olympic legacy.

    Elephant & Castle Town Centre

    The redevelopment of the 1960s Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre is an integral part of Southwark Council’s wider regeneration plan for the Zone 1 London location and will create a new focal point for the community. The regeneration project that was granted planning permission in July 2018 will deliver 979 new homes (including 35% affordable housing) managed by Get Living London.

    An important improvement is the upgrade in accessibility to the Northern Line tube through the delivery of a new entrance, ticket hall and escalators. The new town centre also includes 2.5 acres of open public realm, incorporating improved and safer pedestrian routes and 175,000 square feet of new leisure facilities, shops, cafes and restaurants.

    The project represents a £1 billion investment in the area and includes a cutting-edge campus for University of the Arts London’s (UAL) London College of Communication and a centre for UAL’s core university services, ensuring the leading education establishment can remain in Elephant and Castle.

    In 2019, a Community Hub was opened in the shopping centre for the local community. In March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic the Community Hub moved online, hosting free virtual wellness activities, fitness classes and arts & crafts workshops for local people.

    The Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre closed in September 2020 and works on site have now started.

    Blackhorse View

    Transport for London are transforming the former car park opposite Blackhorse Road station into Blackhorse View, a new development of 350 new homes, new retail and commercial space, including the potential to create a new co-working hub and creative workspace.

    TfL have partnered with Barratt London and London & Quadrant (L&Q) to turn this 1.8-acre site into six new buildings, providing a mixture of studio, one- two- and three-bedroom properties. L&Q will manage the affordable homes, 60 per cent at intermediate and 40 per cent at social rent levels.

    This site is opposite Blackhorse Road station, served by the Victoria line and London Overground. Our proposals also make it easier for residents to cycle, with 650 cycle parking spaces. A number of local bus routes, walking and cycling connections will provide further options for commuters. Future residents will also benefit from the package of measures being delivered in Waltham Forest through its ‘Enjoy Waltham Forest’ programme.

    We commenced construction in summer 2019 and anticipate our first residents moving in during 2021.

    Transport for London’s site in Southall is currently inaccessible to the local community and is largely used as a Crossrail worksite. The site has been identified by Ealing Council as suitable for comprehensive redevelopment and sits within the Southall Opportunity Area.

    Southall is being brought forward as part of our new major strategic partnership with Grainger plc, called Connected Living London. Together, we have an unrivalled opportunity to deliver affordable, high-quality Build to Rent homes at pace, while also generating significant ongoing revenue to reinvest back into the transport network.

    Southall is one of several proposed sites in this partnership, which we are opening up. At Southall we will be delivering 460 homes, with 40 per cent affordable housing, new public realm, as well as community facilities and an improved streetscape.

    The scheme was given the green light by Ealing Council in September 2020.
