East Bank, E20

East Bank, E20

East Bank is a new powerhouse for innovation, creativity and learning on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, bringing together world-leading partners UCL, UAL, BBC, V&A and Sadler’s Wells in east London. As the most ambitious cultural and education new London district for a generation, East Bank is a visible realisation of Covid recovery and investment in east London. Retail has always been considered an important placemaking function at East Bank and on the wider Park, and the six retail units overlooking the waterfront — as well as the further c.2,000 sqm of flexible retail space to be provided at the Stratford Waterfront residential development — provide an invitation to local residents to explore, enjoy and make connections with East Bank.

Pudding Mill Lane

Pudding Mill Lane

Pudding Mill Lane — part of the Pudding Mill neighbourhood — will deliver approximately 900 new homes (minimum of 45 per cent affordable), alongside 36,000 sqm of Employment Space to facilitate 2,000 jobs, and a thriving new neighbourhood centre. Sustainability will be at the heart of the new neighbourhood, with all commercial buildings aiming for a BREEAM Excellent rating. The Employment Space will kickstart placemaking and build on the clusters of innovation and tech industries which have chosen the Park as their home. It will support the wider commercial strategy for the park and the ongoing regeneration of Stratford. An outline planning application was submitted in December 2021  and LLDC is aiming to fix it’s Delivery Strategy for the project in spring 2022.

The London Legacy Development Corporation is an international leader in regeneration and recovery. The London 2012 Games showed the world what this part of east London could achieve, and we see that Olympic and Paralympic legacy ambition realised with east London becoming the fastest growing part of the capital. It is now a dynamic global centre for London creating opportunities for local people and a blueprint for regeneration which cities around the globe seek to emulate.

As one of the best-connected parts of London, with a genuine 15-minute city proposition, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park presents a unique and resilient offer; particularly in a post-Covid world. Through ambition and vision as well as the quality of the environment built on and around the Park, Stratford and the surrounding area can help deliver London and the UK’s economic recovery from the pandemic.

Rosanna Lawes, Executive Director of Development


“LLDC’s experience and track record as a regeneration delivery agency places us well to support London’s economic recovery. That is what we are doing by developing one of the world’s largest and most ambitious culture and education districts, East Bank, which will create unique opportunities for post-pandemic economic growth. More widely, as a microcosm of wider London, the Park offers the space, flexibility, and location for businesses to collaborate in tackling the societal issues of tomorrow. Home to a critical mass of global names in business, education and technology, with access to a diverse, local workforce, the Park is cementing itself as an Inclusive Innovation District and urban testbed through the establishment of SHIFT.”

Lyn Garner, Chief Executive
