Ideal for investors wanting a high quality residential property close to Canary Wharf, Stratford and the City of London, Stratford Riverside overlooks the Queen Elizabeth Park and provides magnificent cityscape views towards Canary Wharf, the Olympic Stadium, the Thames and O2.
Nearby Canary Wharf provides banks, headquarters buildings and 4 retail malls with over 200 shops, bars and restaurants. Over 93,000 people work in Canary Wharf, and as a result the regional housing market has a strong and sustained private and corporate rental sector, which the luxurious apartments and facilities at Stratford Riverside have been adroitly designed to attract.
