LONDON’S MOST EXCITING BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT. THE WORLD-FAMOUS HOME OF THE “THE CENTRE OF LONDON 2012 GRAVITY IN LONDON IS MOVING EAST” GAMES Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a unique and expanding new district which is redefining London’s old industrial heartland. Vibrant business and innovation clusters sit alongside new neighbourhoods and schools, tapping into the creativity and the talent of the communities on their doorstep. Universities work hand in hand with industry, developing new solutions for the challenges of tomorrow. Award-winning parklands surround world-class sporting venues, and a diverse
programme of entertainment events offers something for everyone. New accommodation and workspace is being delivered to the highest design and sustainability standards, and in a way which priorities accessibility and affordability. All this, together with great transport links and the forthcoming arrival of internationally acclaimed cultural and education institutions at East Bank, make this an unparalleled environment in which to live, work and play. This is a place of opportunity. Isn’t it time you were part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park story?
“THE MOST EXCITING PLACE IN EUROPE RIGHT NOW”
George Osborne, Editor, London Evening Standard
LONDON’S INNOVATIO HEART Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a place where innovation, collaboration and skills exchange are defining industries of the future, and where the trialling of new approaches is supporting the operation of resource efficient, future-ready places. A diverse range of organisations have made their home here, from established institutions to pioneering start-ups and enterprises. A growing technology and creative focused business community at Here East is blazing new trails in areas such as smart mobility, cyber security and e-gaming. With a number of university faculties already on the Park, and East Bank bringing UAL’s London College of Fashion and a new campus for University College London, some of the best educational institutions in the country will work side by side with industry and the dynamic communities around the Park to research, develop, explore and innovate. This is a place of possibility. The attention of the world is now firmly on the capital’s east.

With accommodation ranging from apartments to larger family homes, each new neighbourhood will have a distinctly different character and create a benchmark for sustainable living. All homes on the Park will be within a 400m walk of public transport, and a short distance from world-class sporting venues and beautifully landscaped green spaces. The Park will provide the infrastructure needed to support these new neighbourhoods â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with state-of-the-art schools and multipurpose community spaces already delivered, and nurseries, a health centre and a library on the way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; creating an exemplary living space in the heart of east London.

With the iconic London Stadium at its heart, the Park regularly hosts high profile events, from international athletics to Premiership football, Major League Baseball and concerts featuring international stars such as the Rolling Stones and the Foo Fighters. Former Games-time venues, such as the London Aquatics Centre, Lee Valley VeloPark and Copper Box Arena, offer incredible sporting facilities for all. The Park is also a haven of tranquility, with hundreds of acres of parklands, waterways and wildlife providing a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
