The property is located in the fashionable and fast-developing district of Hackney Wick in the Borough of Hackney.

The neighbourhood is famous for its dynamic and inspiring spirit: a selection of independent cafés and eateries, pop-up art galleries and creative spaces is found only a few steps away from the building. The convenient proximity to Stratford Station, with its two big shopping malls, brings residents of Fish Island Village close to world-class retail and provides fast links to the city center.

Traditional industrial style meets contemporary design to make the homes at Fish Island Village spacious, well-lit, and convenient. The large dark-framed windows and a mixed palette of brickworks make the property’s buildings stand out, yet they go well with the spirit of the area.
Residents benefit from communal workspaces found right at the complex, an exclusive fully equipped gym, concierge service and an underground car parking. Gastronomic options for any time of the day as well as venues supporting local coffee culture are found within a few minutes of walk, ensuring the residents at Fish Island Village stay well connected to the social life of the area.
The available units range from 1- to 2- and 3-bedroom apartments designed by Haworth Tompkins Architects. Since the idea of design revolved around creative-minded and forward-thinking people who will occupy these homes, the style turned out calmingly clean and contemporary, leaving space to create your own customized living space. All units have open-plan living and dining areas, smart kitchens with integrated appliances, luxurious bathrooms or en suites and private balconies or terraces to enjoy the riverside views.
