Two Stratford towers now rising up

One of Stratford’s most promising high-rise developments is finally seeing some momentum of two towers on site.

The blocks at Rondo didn’t really move for months above what will be the podium level but that’s now changed.

Forthcoming tower and commercial units

Located beside Stratford International stations – both Southeastern and the DLR – it was the site of a bus station. Telford Homes are now building 380 homes.

It could be said its a bit short-sited given the bus station was there for international passengers but of course Stratford International has never been international – and doesn’t look like ever being so as things stand.

Land was sold by the Department for Transport, HS1 Limited and London & Continental Railways.

Looking to future development site east of Rondo towers

Nearby on a site along International Way are plans for “construction of six blocks to provide up to 750 residential dwellings (class C3), up to 1,020 bedspaces of student accommodation (sui generis), up to 10,000sqm (GIA) of non-residential floorspace and up to 370sqm community hub”.

The site is known as IQL North and expected to see a full planning application – possibly in 2024.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    One thought on “Two Stratford towers now rising up

    • I belive this development will be very popular as very well located in Stratford to transport and amenities. Both of which are on the developments door step.

      I would like to see TFL land next to Woolwich Arsenal DLR Station built on. Providing more homes possibly for rent at affordable rents.
