CLOSE to the heart of Lon­don Fields, The Grans­den and Hack­ney Yard fuses homes and workspace in a neat, mod­ern de­vel­op­ment of 42 apart­ments above 23,000sq ft of stu­dios and of­fices for creative-sec­tor en­trepreneurs and start-up com­pa­nies.

This de­vel­op­ment is tipped to be­come a new neigh­bour­hood hub. Prices from £525,000. Call es­tate agent Fyfe Mcdade on 020 7613 4044.

Vyn Yard is an­other east Lon­don new build, com­pris­ing 16 in­dus­trial- style homes in Vyner Street, a Beth­nal Green hotspot where a street festival is hosted by lo­cal art gal­leries on the first Thurs­day of ev­ery month.

The apart­ments have vaulted ceil­ings, steel beams and brick fea­ture walls, plus iPad con­trol of heat­ing, light­ing and au­dio­vi­sual en­ter­tain­ment.

BER­MOND­SEY WORKS is per­fectly placed to profit from the two new Bak­er­loo line sta­tions planned for Old Kent Road. The first phase of the line ex­ten­sion will run from Ele­phant & Cas­tle to Lewisham via New Cross Gate.

Trans­port for Lon­don has iden­ti­fied sites for the new sta­tions at the junc­tions with Al­bany Road and Asy­lum Road, and although it will be up to 10 years be­fore Bak­er­loo trains start op­er­at­ing, the green light for the ex­ten­sion is help­ing to ce­ment the fu­ture of this up-and-com­ing, cur­rently Tube-starved area.

Ber­mond­sey Works, post­code SE16, is the first scheme out of the blocks. Lo­cated be­tween the two pro­posed sta­tions, it has 148 flats and du­plexes above a new free school and City of Lon­don sixth form academy plus com­mu­nal roof gar­dens, 24-hour concierge, pri­vate gym, un­der­ground park­ing and cy­cle stor­age. Prices start at £517,500 for a two-bed­room flat.
