Prospect East is off Leyton Road, E15, and just a short walk north of Stratford’s transport hub and Westfield Stratford City. Set to become an area in its own right, Prospect East sits at the heart of the capital’s shift eastwards into Stratford, and surprisingly close to everything else east London has to offer.

Established and up-and-coming east London destinations such as Leyton, Hackney Wick, Hackney Marshes, Dalston and Shoreditch are all easily accessible; Canary Wharf and The City can be easily and swiftly reached by tube. Closer to home is the East Village - the former Olympic Village - and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Europe’s largest new park for more than 150 years.

Living at Prospect East will be as much about the original East End as it is about the new. Traditional East End boozers, East London’s most famous ‘people’s theatre’, artists’ colonies and street markets, all are within easy reach.

Ride, Swim, Play
Improve your sporting prospects and live close to three national stadia. Watch Premier League football at the Olympic Stadium, swim at the Aquatic Centre or practise some serious power pedalling at The Velodrome. Get into one of the many outdoor boot camps on offer, or join the Copperbox gym.

If gentler pursuits are more your thing, enjoy the expansive open green spaces bestowed on the area by London’s Olympic legacy. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s many dedicated paths are great for cycling or jogging. Alternatively, simply kick back and stroll through acres of wild open green space that’s home to a multitude of wild flowers and wildlife.


Live next door to the East Village, the Olympians’ former campus, and be close to swanky new restaurants and cafes as well as a new supermarket and health centre. Pop over for any of the many pop-up events staged here, from festivals and fairs to open air cinema.

Take a short walk south and immerse yourself in the Stratford Hub. Shop, eat, catch a movie or indulge in a flutter at Westfield. Catch a DLR, Overground, tube or regular train and access the capital and beyond.

Enjoy easy access to the rest of east London and all it has to offer. Take a short walk to Hackney Wick’s artists’ studios, pop-up clubs and art fairs. Head to Dalston and take in a jazz club or sample some authentic Turkish cuisine. Shoreditch, Spitalfields, Bethnal Green – all are easily accessible.

The alternative east
Before Stratford 2012 there was always Stratford, and it’s still there. The Theatre Royal Stratford East, old fashioned shops, fashionable new bars – all sit comfortably cheek by jowl with Stratford’s gleaming new shopping mall and park. Head north to Leyton, London’s next artists’ quarter, with its quirky cafes and colourful characters.
