London is reopening, and it's time to make the most of city living. You'll want to be based somewhere with its own unique buzz about it, as well as brilliant transport links to your favourite bits of the capital. You need an affordable apartment (no point living in London if all your pennies are going on rent), but also one that's a joy to be in, somewhere you can really feel at home.
Luckily, Folio London has just the spot: Stratford. These specialists in contemporary urban renting have not one but two stylish new developments in this lively East End neighbourhood. Let's have a look around, shall we?
New Garden Quarter
At New Garden Quarter, residents are mere minutes away from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park — that's 200 acres of green space to explore, alongside a whole lot of Olympic heritage, including the London Stadium and London Aquatics Centre.
The development is also close to the award-winning Theatre Royal Stratford East and the shoppers' paradise that is Westfield Stratford City. Stratford Underground Station is just an eight-minute walk away and Stratford International is even closer — perfect for whenever you fancy escaping London entirely.
Each apartment at New Garden Quarter is finished to a high specification and comes with its own private balcony. With up to three-bedroom properties available, this development is a cracking choice for families — there's even an onsite nursery!
Other amenities include a concierge service, a cafe, a residents' gym and bike storage, so you can easily stay active without cluttering up your own home.
Further west — and even closer to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park — is Stratford Halo. This gleaming tower offers incredible views of the capital, all the way out to Canary Wharf. Here, you've got riverside cycle paths on your doorstep, alongside a residents' gym and loads of communal outdoor space.
Like New Garden Quarter, all Stratford Halo apartments are finished to a high specification and benefit from a concierge service. Stratford Halo even boasts its own games room, where you can get to know your neighbours while indulging your competitive side.
Whichever development you opt for, you'll get free furniture packages and the promise of no hidden fees. What's more, Folio London is a pet-friendly landlord, so you can bring your four-legged friend with you too!
