Stratford tower site sees slow progress

Work to build a a new development in Stratford is slowly progressing.

The plot will see two towers above a podium metres from Stratford international DLR station.

A floor or two added in past two months.

It’s a site covered regularly on this for no more reason than it’s a cut above most plans that are approved and progress.

The arches at street level give it character and promise some decent shops and perhaps bars/pubs/restaurants in years to come.

Active frontage

Something I’ve noticed riding the DLR to its terminus to take photos is that trains seem ever more busy.

Previously barely anyone would stay on past Stratford much of the time but a fair few do now.

Metres from Stratford International DLR station

This part of Stratford is named East Village and also sits close to Stratford Westfield shopping centre.

Southeastern also serve a nearby station where you can pay wildly expensive tickets to St Pancras and also see more SE staff in one place than are seen at just about every Metro stations on all three Dartford lines combined on a given day.

Help to hide shocker of a student block behind

As for the Rondo development, two towers will reach 27 floors in height with 380 flats across the site.

Telford Homes and Legal and General are behind the project.

Park and pedestrian streets

It’s all shaping up to be a decent area with plenty of footfall and life both day and night among attractive public realm.


Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.
