Last weekend saw the successful launch of Bagel Factory and Old Smokehouse at the dedicated marketing suite in Hackney Wick.

There was a really strong turnout with 120 people in attendance, and lots of interest in this exciting new development.

Hackney Wick and Fish Island are set to undergo extensive regeneration, building a creative hub that has been dubbed “the new Shoreditch” – and a perfect investment opportunity. The V&A, London College of Fashion and Sadler’s Wells Theatre are all opening in the Olympic Park, as well as a major development which will include new homes, schools and The International Quarter business centre.

All this change will generate over 50,000 jobs for the area and see The London Legacy Development Corporation establish one of the largest new urban spaces in Europe for over 150 years.

You can find out more about the developments and check out a virtual tour here.

Our Discover East resource centre, which focuses on the large scale regenerative changes in east London, has been bookmarked by industry expert David Spittles.

“Currell has opened a Discover East resource centre that is worth visiting, showing the regeneration plans and projects in and around Fish Island.”

In his latest article for the Evening Standard’s dedicated property supplement, Homes & Property, David focuses on Stratford and the area’s post-Olympic progress and picks up on our work in Discover East and the  He puts particular emphasis on the so called ‘Olympicopolis’, an £850 million project to make Stratford one of London’s newest and best cultural quarters. Plans include a new Victoria and Albert Museum, the relocated campus of the London College of Fashion and a Sadler’s Wells theatre and choreography school.

As part of these changes, Boris Johnson recently announced plans to bump Stratford Station from Zone 3 to Zone 2, showing, as Boris says, “the shifting economic map of London.”

It is these ambitious plans that form the focus of our Discover East resource centre, and the effect they will have in particular on the relatively undiscovered areas of Hackney Wick and Fish Island.
