Overview

Bow River Village is now an established new residential quarter and part of London’s residential and cultural shift eastwards in recent years. The development lies just south of the south east tip of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, with neighbouring Stratford to the north and Bow and Hackney to the west and north west.

The village has been designed to reflect the architectural heritage of its immediate surroundings, with perpendicular, brick-built contemporary apartment buildings which pay homage to the nearby Victorian warehouses dotted along the river. A supremely calm place, Bow River Village is nevertheless ideally suited for a variety of lifestyles.

Inside, the apartments have been designed with modern and efficient living in mind.
