Facade of East Village

East Village

225 Dwellings per hectare
427 units in 14 buildings (2-7 floors)

Series of mid-rise courtyard blocks (E15 2ER) originally for athletes competing in the 2012 London Olympics.

The 3000 units are nearly all rented: half are owned by a consortium of housing associations, and half by corporate landlord Get Living London, which markets to young professionals. 

Despite being broadly similar in size and shape, the buildings were designed by 18 different architects. The commercial premises at ground floor level are occupied by curated range of independent businesses, a contrast to nearby Westfield Shopping Centre.

What residents say

[I wouldn't stay here] for more than 5 years. It's high quality but if you were here for longer you would really want to make the place your own and that's not something I think East Village flats are made for.

[The highlights are] Transport links!!! Location is fabulous. - The facilities available around me. The green spaces, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park,  the canal provides excellent opportunities to walk, cycle, explore. Westfield : Don't even have to go to Central now to shop. 

There is a large amount of noisy students. West Ham game days are a bit of a nightmare. The energy supplier has a monopoly, it's very expensive, and they can't seem to provide reasons for residents bills to be so very different, even though you may be like for like.
