Glasshouse Gardens named amongst best places to live in London

Glasshouse Gardens has been named in an article by The Times as one of the UK’s best new build apartments to live in. The article took information from a website called Home Views, a new site which uses reviews from existing residents to help potential buyers of new-build property make the right decision.

Glasshouse Gardens is part of International Quarter London; a selection of 1,2 and 3 bedroom apartments that feature panoramic views of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) and beyond. A joint venture between Lendlease and LCR, the development showcases the latest sustainability practices. Practices that featured throughout the construction process and thread themselves into the ethos of the development itself.

The outdoor spaces have been designed to allow natural light and fresh air to flood in and the heating system used is a new concept for London which creates fewer carbon dioxide emissions than standard counterparts.

Stratford itself offers residents green open spaces in QEOP, restaurants, cafes and enlivenment across the wider IQL development, and entertainment accompanied by shopping from places like Westfield and Roof East. With the East Bank development welcoming cultural institutions like the V&A, Smithsonian, Sadler’s Wells and London College of Fashion, Stratford is set to become London’s new cultural, beating heart.

Residents of Glasshouse Gardens left reviews praising the design, management and location of the development.

“The design is beautifully made. The neighbours are friendly and there is a Facebook group which we use to communicate. The team here are amazing. The layout of the flat works very well for what I need. You have everything in the park, and the swimming pool is great.”

“Amazing views and two very nice bedrooms. Amazing gym facilities. Shopping centre is very, very close, with lots of bars and restaurants, brilliant concierge services and a children’s playground next to the house. The discomfort of living here is that Heathrow is far away, but the new Elizabeth line will soon run from Liverpool Street to Stratford.”

Lendlease’s aim is to create the best places. For 50 years it has been creating sustainable new communities across the globe that suit people’s needs now and can adapt to support urban living in the future. Other developments are currently under construction across London. To find out more, visit homebylendlease.co.uk.
