The International Quarter, Stratford City
The International Quarter lies at the heart of Stratford City, a new metropolitan centre for London. A world class development, less than 10 minutes from central London on the 700 acre site of the Olympic Park. Being at the centre of Europe’s largest urban development, it has already benefitted from over £12.5bn of investment in the area to date. Unique for a development of this scale, the key infrastructure and facilities will already be in place when its first offices are occupied.
This £2.3bn billion project will be delivered by Lendlease on behalf of Stratford City Business District Ltd, a 50/50 joint venture between Lend Lease, one the world’s largest development and construction companies, and London and Continental Railways (LCR) owner and operator of St Pancras and Stratford International stations, along with much of the surrounding land.
The International Quarter, one of the UK’s largest mixed-use schemes, will be a vibrant, new urban quarter providing four million sq ft of Grade A flexible commercial office space, 330 new homes, with associated retail, childcare facilities and community uses, all set within a unique parkland environment.
The International Quarter will offer unrivalled connectivity for employees via Stratford International, two Underground lines, Overground, DLR and Crossrail in 2019. World class amenities are only a short walk away, including Europe’s largest urban shopping mall with 1.9m sq ft of retail and 70 restaurants and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park providing new green space the size of St James’ Park.
