London City Island, London, UK
London’s creative industries are powerhouses of regeneration and growth, and they thrive because they’re constantly renewing themselves, often in new quarters of the city. On London City Island, they’ll find a welcoming new home with innovative living and working accommodation. This is a development that purposely doesn’t follow the usual conventions; freedom of choice and flexibility of accommodation is a keynote of the project. An arts centre and gallery, together with shops, restaurants and cafés will help to give London City Island the feel of an authentic and creative riverside community, bursting with ideas and vitality.
