Welcome to Discover East

As an established local agent in east London, we are excited to launch our latest venture eastwards, with the opening of a resource centre, focused on Hackney Wick and Fish Island - Discover East.

Growing our business in this direction is an obvious next step, given the ongoing regeneration of this fast-changing area of London. Excellent transport links, fashionable shops, bars and cafés, a thriving artistic and cultural life, and plentiful green spaces are proving a potent attraction for the increasing number of people choosing east over west.

The relatively undiscovered area of Hackney Wick and Fish Island (HWFI) lies in a unique position, sandwiched between fashionable Victoria Park and Bow, and the metamorphosing Olympic Park. The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) recognises the huge potential of this location, and has a far-sighted vision to foster the development of this vibrant and diverse neighbourhood into an attractive place to live and work.

The Discover East centre houses our model of HWFI, which is a comprehensive guide to the built environment of the area, as well as an invaluable sales tool for individual developments. In addition to functioning as a resource centre, Discover East will be our fifth residential sales and lettings office, covering the HWFI area and its immediate hinterland (notably Stratford). Initially operating from Kingsland Road in Hackney and focussing on new build developments, the Discover East office will be relocated to a site on HWFI in the first half of 2016. 

If you want to find out more about the changes taking place in this part of east London, please pop into the Discover East resource centre at 311-313 Kingsland Road, E8 to explore the information on display and talk to a member of our team. Please note that the office is open Monday to Friday 9am-6pm. If you wish to make an appointment to visit on a Saturday please contact Benjamin Hobart on discovereast@currell.com
