Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - New Homes -

ECO-HOMES just launched on the banks of an in­dus­trial wa­ter­way in Strat­ford E15 are bold and imag­i­na­tive. Blaker Is­land, above, be­side City Mill River was used for the pro­duc­tion of chem­i­cals be­fore fall­ing derelict in the Six­ties. But its locks and banks have been re­stored and up­graded with 2012 Olympic Games in­vest­ment money.

Three houses and five apart­ments have been built to Pas­sivhaus stan­dards, a Ger­man con­struc­tion method that re­duces en­ergy bills by up to 90 per cent. The homes are triple glazed, with an ad­vanced air­tight­ness and air fil­tra­tion sys­tem to re­move dust, pol­lens and smoke. In­te­ri­ors have been de­signed to max­imise nat­u­ral light and views of the water. Prices from £615,000. Call es­tate agent Cur­rell on 020 7226 6611.
