East Thames Group is a housing association and social regeneration charity with more than 35 years’ experience. The Group, based in Stratford E15, is a major developer of new homes across a variety of tenures throughout east London and Essex.
The organisation has at its heart an ethos of innovation, particularly in respect of design and sustainability. Every East Thames development, regardless of size, is approached as a unique project and is designed to be the best possible place for its residents to live. Larger than average interior layouts, the design and orientation of buildings to maximise natural light, providing private outside spaces, landscaped green areas to encourage walking and cycling – all are given very careful consideration. East Thames also prides itself on its reputation for sustainability, designing and building homes to at least Code for Sustainable Homes level 4.
The Group has enjoyed considerable success winning a number of awards for its developments across a variety of disciplines. This includes The Ocean Estate in Stepney Green, which involved the re-planning, refurbishment and partial redevelopment of a large local authority estate. VIVO, and So Stepney, its two new build developments, were voted one of Inside Housing’s Top 60 Developments 2015, and were the winner of best new place to live in the 2014/2015 London Planning Awards.
The latter award was also won the year before by East Village, the former 2012 Olympics Athletes Village, which was developed by East Thames in partnership with Southern Housing Group and urban development and investment company First Base. East Village, which is adjacent to Prospect East, was also voted RESI 2014 ‘Best Place to Live’ winner.
