Life in the former athlete's village

The former Athletes’ Village is now a buzzing community of over 3,000 people. It’s easy to see why: East Village offers all the advantages of a central London location, but with the added plus of amazing green space. It’s set in 67 acres of parkland – perfect for those who love an active lifestyle, but with quiet corners like the Wetlands where you can get away from it all.

Dotted around its broad, car-free avenues, you’ll find a brilliant selection of hand-picked artisan shops, bars and independent restaurants for all occasions. All in Zone 2, just seven minutes away from King’s Cross.

Set in 67 acres of parkland

You’ll find parks and public gardens dotted across East Village from the peaceful waterscape of The Waterglades to the community hub at Victory Park, and 3 children’s play areas. Right on the doorstep, you can enjoy the biggest park built in Europe for 150 years – the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Home to world-class sporting venues, 35km of paths and nature trails, and 111 acres of open space including gardens and wetlands. East Village is quite simply a greener place to live. 

With 1-4 bed homes to rent you’ll find your perfect home in this tranquil neighbourhood.

Living at East Village

We’re picky about our neighbourhoods – because we expect our residents to be too. We always opt for locations that are well-connected, with a range of swift and green transport options around the city. We choose areas with a distinct character and feel, and build in shared spaces indoors and out, where people can come together. And we make sure they’re not just places to sleep, but places to live, with shops and services on your doorstep plus regular neighbourhood events.

Dotted around the quiet avenues of East Village, you’ll find a brilliant selection of handpicked artisan shops, bars and independent restaurants for all types of occasions. Make the most of our tempting coffee shops and just sit and watch the world go calmly by.

Enjoy the great outdoors on your doorstep

With so much going on in East Village, it will invite you to enjoy the outdoor life. We organise free fitness classes that take place in Victory Park all year round along with regular events from outdoor film screenings to markets to mini-festivals. If you prefer peace and quiet, there are plenty of spots to get away from it all, like the tranquil Wetlands, which is our very own nature reserve.
