Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – The Vision
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will form the heart of one of the most ambitious regeneration programmes in Europe.
The park will be a unique and inspiring place for events and leisure activities, a major centre for sport and culture alongside new communities built around family housing to suit a range of budgets, plus a commercial hub.
It will be an exciting new home for business, leisure and life, bringing the best of London together in one place.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park aims to become a global centre of international distinction, a thriving new metropolitan district in London, and an anchor in the social and economic regeneration of east London. It will be a place unlike any other in London, offering the best in sporting and cultural amenities in world-class venues and parks, and at the same time creating places to live that are rooted in the ethos and fabric of east London’s diverse and vital communities.

Over time, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will become home to up to 7,000 households in five neighbourhoods, extending the life and character of surrounding communities into the site.
Planned around pocket parks and squares, and built to the latest standards of environmental sustainability, these neighbourhoods are being designed to rekindle the heritage of east London life, with its famous community spirit and vibrant cultural diversity, in homes that embrace and promote the most modern of living standards.
The five new neighbourhoods will cater for all the requirements of a growing family, providing play areas, schools, nurseries, community spaces, health centres and shops, with places to relax, play and exercise all within easy walking distance. And with 300 shops across the Park at neighbouring Westfield Stratford City, as well as restaurants, bars and entertainments including a bowling alley, casino and 17-screen cinema complex, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be one of the most desirable residential locations in London.
The first of these neighbourhoods is Chobham Manor.
Chobham Manor – The Vision
Chobham Manor will see a return to London’s traditional family neighbourhoods of terraced and mews houses, set within tree-lined avenues.
Nestled between the East Village and the Lee Valley VeloPark, the new neighbourhood will help to address the local need for family-size homes with 75 per cent of properties having three or more bedrooms.
Three large, distinct areas of green open space will run through the heart of the new community, while a series of smaller public open spaces will provide safe spaces to relax and play.
Alongside the new homes will be space for a variety of shops and community amenities, including a nursery, crèche and places to eat and drink.
Given the development’s close proximity to the VeloPark, the cyclist, rather than the motorist, will be king at Chobham Manor, with several measures to deter the regular use of cars and to encourage cycling, while all roads and public spaces will be designed with the pedestrian very much in mind.
