New Garden Quarter, Stratford
New one to three bedroom flats went on sale yesterday in this rapidly-changing part of east London. Each of the one to three bedroom apartments – 183 for private sale – come with a balcony or terrace. Set in two acres of parkland, there’s also a gym for residents and a proposed cafe and nursery. Parking spaces are sold separately but there is room for over 200 bicycles. Due to be completed in the summer of 2019, it’s part of the Chobham Farm Masterplan, which will see new outposts of the V&A and Sadler’s Wells move in nearby.

The Overdraught, Hackney
Two one bedroom apartments remain at this small collection of new homes in Haggerston – and the price has been reduced by £25,000. Developed by housing association L&Q, these nine apartments have nearly sold out and one four bedroom house is yet to go on sale. Completed in late spring for the first owners to move in in the summer, the name comes from the historic Irish pub that used to occupy the site. Situated on a corner near Regent’s Canal and Haggerston Station, the City commute is around 25mins.
