Glasshouse Gardens - one of the best places to live in London
We’re delighted to announce that Glasshouse Gardens in Stratford has been recognised as one of the UK’s best new build apartment developments in a recent article in The Times. Part of International Quarter London (IQL), the development offers one, two, and three-bedroom apartments with panoramic views over Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) and luxurious interior design for contemporary living.
Stratford has a lot to offer its residents. The area boasts restaurants and cafes, including exceptional new brands like Tonkotsu and Signorelli. IQL features regular activities and events for residents and employees, and you’ll find entertainment in spades with Westfield London and bars aplenty nearby. For those in need of some “me-time”, QEOP has acres of cultivated, open green spaces to give you room to sit back and breathe. And that’s not all. Stratford’s set to become London’s beating, cultural heart with East Bank welcoming the V&A, the Smithsonian, Sadler’s Wells and the London College of Fashion over the next few years.
IQL itself is a commercial and residential development; a joint venture between Lendlease and LCR. It’s been built using the latest sustainability practices, its outdoor spaces are designed to benefit from both natural light and fresh air, and the heating system uses a process that creates fewer carbon dioxide emissions than those of conventional systems.
For a combination of these reasons, residents of Glasshouse Gardens have rated it as one of the best places to live in the UK on new build property review website, Homeviews.com. Their comments praise the building’s design, its location and the excellent transport connections it offers.
“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. Great connection close to everything you need.”
“It’s a joy to wake up to the view, it makes me fall in (love with) London all over again. Living on the 15th floor I can really enjoy what London has to offer ... With 251 acres of protected land I am in heaven knowing that nothing is going to be developed in front of me forever ... I can’t fault the property, I love the fresh air in the morning and the view with a great shopping environment.”
For 50 years, Lendlease has been creating sustainable new communities across the globe to suit people’s needs now but can also adapt to urban living in the future. Lendlease’s aim is to create the best places, and other developments are currently under construction across London.
