Onwards and Eastwards
- What do Birbeck, University of London and University College London have in common?
- Where will the V&A and Smithsonian’s new £25 million collection and research centre call home?
- And where would you find the largest urban shopping and leisure destination in Europe?
The answer’s a hat-trick, and it’s awarded to Stratford. Our titans of education, culture and retail have all realised the same thing: London is moving east – so they’re moving with it.
Nestled within the London Borough of Newham, Stratford has grown from strength to strength since the 2012 Olympics. One of the most exciting regeneration projects London has seen in recent years, today Stratford is a cultural hub with education, employment and people at its core. And thanks to the East Bank scheme, a unique collaboration between world-leading universities and art institutions, the BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, BBC Singers, Sadler’s Wells and the London College of Fashion will soon be settling into their new E15 home.
“London’s centre of gravity is clearly moving east and it is right that culture and education should be at the heart of this new metropolitan centre.”
– Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
Just 500m east of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the new cultural centre, you’ll find Duncan House on Stratford High Street. For educators looking to expand their offering and create new opportunities outside of central London, this exciting new development from Somers Real Estate should be the first destination on your list.
