A new Thames waterfront neighbourhood with 800 homes surrounded by water on three sides where the Lea flows into the Thames has been started on the Leamouth Peninsula.
The Goodluck Hope scheme ready by 2020 is now going on the market, with the first batch of suites, warehouse and tower apartments ready by 2019, from £335,000.
It extends Ballymore developers’ massive London City Island complex on the loop of the Lea tributary, dubbed ‘Little Manhatten’, where English National Ballet and the London Film School are moving to next year.
“Goodluck Hope completes the Leamouth Peninsula transformation,” Ballymore managing director John Mulryan said.
“We are building on the industrial heritage of the area to create an environment for artisans to work.”
The scheme includes a business centre, leisure centre, swimming pool, gym, arts club, private cinema, restaurant and 20th-floor viewing lounge.
It even has a cottage brewery on the site of the old Orchard House pub along with its own brewers’ school teaching the traditional beer-making craft.
