Arising in East London are over 1,700 new flats and townhouses – on an island within the capital.
London City Island is a new neighbourhood development inspired by the architecture of Tokyo and Chicago, according to its developers.
The Island, created by EcoWorld Ballymore, has been referred to as a “Mini Manhattan”, according to estate agency Johns & Co.
Opposite the O2 arena, the Island, which covers 12 acres, is close to the business district of Canary Wharf.
While the residential property prices range from £335,000 to over a million, the Island has already attracted the likes of the English National Ballet to its commercial area.
The property development includes a footbridge to make Crossrail and DLR transport links more accessible, according to the developer.
