East London tower now rising at Stroudley Walk development

A tower has begun to rise which when complete will see 274 homes.

The project is a joint venture between Muse and Poplar HARCA with the tallest block set to face Bromley High Street.

While many High Streets have seen decline the one here has been all but erased. Redevelopment throughout the 20th century knocked down pubs, shops and pretty much all else that constitutes a High Street.

Prior redevelopment included Warren House, a 1960s block of flats demolished to make way for this new project. It’s called Stroudley Walk after the pedestrianised parade built to replace retail offerings seen at the former High Street.

Colonnades line the pedestrianised parade running north-south in place of the old high Street running east-west.

That view will look a bit different upon completion.

A small area of colonnades will remain at the northern end.

Transport

The nearest station to the site is Bow Church DLR on the line between Stratford and Lewisham via Canary Wharf while the D8 bus passes beside the site from photos were taken.

Upon completion the tower will certainly make its mark in the Bromley and Bow area.

By the way, these pics are a little old and one block is now up to around the fifth floor. Completion is expected in 2025.
