Gascoigne East – Phase 2
Transforming the east side of the 1960s Gascoigne estate into a modern, environmentally friendly community.
Years of regeneration
KM of public space
Over 1,000 homes, plus shops, healthcare and community facilities created over 12 years
Aberfeldy Village is our multi-phase regeneration of a seven-acre site in Tower Hamlets close to East India DLR station. We're creating a tenure-blind new community who can either buy or rent and enjoy living in an up and coming area with fast access to Canary Wharf and central London.
Phase 1 with the units and public realm space
We've already completed phases one and two, delivering over 500 homes available for sale, private rent and social rent and are nearing completion of phase 3.
This is also the first development to provide bespoke build to rent homes in London, and has attracted much praise for how you make best use of density to create an appealing new sense of 'place' to attract a new generation to this part of east London.
The public realm street on phases 1 and 2 creates a welcoming environment
Aberfeldy 'street' (above) provides a beautiful recreational environment for residents, and the emphasis on integration and public realm space is complimented by sweeping views over Canary Wharf and the River Thames.
Aberfeldy has the first build for rent homes, which are adjacent to the homes for sale. These units are designed for renters and not market sale, and were some of the first new-build PRS homes to gain institutional investment, in this case from M&G.
They were developed by Be Living (now EcoWorld London), our residential specialist developing the entire estate with JV partner Poplar HARCA, who owns the land. Before we arrived, it was a brownfield site with 1960s housing that had come to the end of its useful life!
The location in east London is very close to East India Road DLR station, allowing new and existing residents to benefit from fast transport links to Canary Wharf and central London. With Crossrail due to arrive in 2018, AV will become one of the most sought after places to live in east London.
