Hackney Wick is one of East London’s foremost creative up and coming locations. Once a wholly industrial area, Hackney Wick along with neighbouring Fish Island is an increasingly popular residential area and a thriving artistic and creative zone.
Hackney Wick and Fish Island lie immediately adjacent to hackney and Stratford, two locations which have experienced significant growth. Over the last 5 years, Stratford in particular, connected to Fish Island via the new Queen Elizabeth Park and a number of improved walkways, has seen very high levels of investment and development pre and post the Summer 2012 Olympics. This has resulted in a very positive influence on both Hackeny Wick and Fish Island, with a large part of the area earmarked for future redevelopment with the London Legacy Committee committed to the ongoing regeneration of this location.
As well as the redevelopment of Hackney Wick station, new developments include Aitch Group’s White Post Lane, Rothbury Road and Monier Road sites, Pea Body’s Neptune Wharf and L&Q’s forthcoming scheme on Bream Street.
