REVITALISING EAST LONDON
Leven Wharf in London’s East End is part of the City’s most forward-looking, long-term regeneration. During the 1980s, the re-imagining of the Docklands and the creation of London City Airport kickstarted the process; since then East London has received billions of pounds to create new homes, transport infrastructure and jobs – and attract further investment. The introduction of Crossrail at Custom House will give even greater flexibility and ease of travel to both central London and beyond.
For the 2012 Olympics, £9 billion was invested in constructing world-class sporting venues and accommodation; now, the creation of East London Tech City is opening up the East End to blue-chip digital companies and agencies; and the London Riverside and larger Thames Gateway zone is shifting the focus of the city to the east, bringing new energy to what was once a depressed area. The continued investment in this area is creating one of the most exciting, up and coming quarters in the city, a new hub for both living and business.
