CANNY BUYERS HEAD FOR CANNING TOWN
EAST LONDON’S other great regeneration zone is Canning Town, where first-time buyers could bag a shared-ownership home at the East City Point development from £112,000.
The scheme has won a RIBA Housing Design award and is a short walk away from Canning Town station, for the Jubilee line and Docklands Light Railway. Connections to Canary Wharf and Stratford are quick, which helps to make up for the lack of shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep of an area which is still very much under construction.
Canning Town, and neighbouring Custom House, are the focus of a £3.7 billion regeneration drive which will eventually see hundreds of new homes, shops, offices, and leisure spaces created.
A 35 per cent share of a one-bedroom flat at East City Point starts from £112,000, while a 35 per cent share of a two-bedroom flat starts from £163,625. Visit latimerhomes.com to find out more about the development and prices.
