The winners' medals may feature iconic London landmarks, but when London hosts the 2017 World Athletics Championships later this summer, it will be the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park that once again finds itself in the spotlight.

The Olympic Park has undergone quite a transformation since the 2012 Olympics. Cafes, parks, an aquatics centre, creative hub and business units are now open for business. The original goal was to make this vast space a new centre for the East London community. 

Part of this vision has meant providing affordable housing in the Olympic park. Newly completed properties - a mix of flats and townhouses - are now available to rent or buy through shared ownership. 

With nearby Westfield Stratford City for your shopping needs, plus excellent transport links to central London, we certainly recommend factoring Stratford's new developments into your property search.

So If living in this exciting neighbourhood appeals , visit the Dexters team at Canary Wharf. We're expert at tailoring our search to meet your rental budget for a medal-worthy investment.
