Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
A new heart for east London, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the city's newest park. It will be a new home to thousands and a new destination for millions.
The Park is now open for the public to visit and is already coming alive as visitors explore its unique parklands, waterways, venues and attractions.
The north of the Park and the Copper Box Arena opened in 2013 with a series of incredible festivals and concerts, and the south of the Park, including three iconic venues and the ArcelorMittal Orbit, opened in April 2014.
Homes and living
By 2030, the Park will be home to more than 10,000 new households, among the first to live in the brand new E20 postcode.
Our plans will see five new neighbourhoods, planned around green spaces and squares, and built to be lasting homes for those who live in them. They will include contemporary homes taking lessons from London's traditional Georgian and Victorian squares and terraces, looking out over parklands and waterways.
Around a third of them will be affordable housing, with many of them built for long-term rent as well as to buy.
Each neighbourhood provides play areas, schools, nurseries, community spaces, health centres and shops, with places to relax, play and exercise, all within easy walking distance. With some of the best transport links in the city, including a link to Crossrail by 2019, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be one of the most desirable residential locations in London.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be home to some of London's most exciting and innovative businesses in the coming years.
Those businesses will take advantage of the Park's cutting edge infrastructure, a host of high quality facilities for organisations of all sizes, and some of the best transport links in London.
Press and broadcast centres
A new digital quarter for east London, the former Press and Broadcast Centres for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games become Here East. This major new development builds on the creative and entrepreneurial heritage of Hackney Wick to create a thriving commercial space providing more than 7,500 jobs on site and in the local community.
