Way of Life releases a first look at its latest Build to Rent scheme Riverstone Heights in Bromley-by-Bow. Expanding its London footprint, the scheme combines modern living and smarter working with the comforts of home.

Riverstone Heights includes 204 beautifully designed homes – a mix of one and two bedroom apartments. Interiors have been designed by ADC Atelier by Aaron Clarke – known internationally for his visionary projects within hospitality, working with names such as Soho House. The design of Riverstone Heights takes inspirations from the nearby Lea Valley and the legacy of the craftworks that once worked in Bromley by Bow.

ADC Atelier’s approach has utilised the pale green concrete panels that reflect the mossy tones found in the tideline along the nearby river edge with interior organic forms to create a contrasting, yet balanced design aesthetic. Riverstone Heights features a natural colour and material palette, with commissioned murals providing a modernist twist to 1960’s interior architecture. Full height windows are throughout, maximising the exterior landscape.

Apartments will be available furnished or unfurnished, with prices starting at £2,100. Residents can manage the entire process via one simple digital journey on Way of Life’s dedicated platform, from first viewing through to moving in.

“Riverstone Heights is another exciting development for Way of Life since launching our Third Party Management services at the end of 2022. Using innovative in-house technology, Way of Life’s unique offering creates a streamlined service for new residents, providing excellent customer service to our residents, and paving the way as a leader in the UK Build to Rent sector.”

Residents at Riverstone Heights also benefit from strong transport connections, with services to Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf taking 15 minutes, and London’s West End can be reached in just over 30 minutes.

Welcoming its first residents late Spring, Riverstone Heights opens off the back of Way of Life’s successful launch of The Gessner in Tottenham Hale that was unveiled in Autumn 2021. Continuing the company’s ethos, Riverstone Heights will offer first-rate design, service and amenity, an approach inspired by the shifts within the lifestyle hospitality sector, to create a full-service and contemporary rental offering.

“We’re excited to announce this important next step in Way of Life’s expansion, bringing our design and lifestyle ethos to a broader audience. Marrying the comfort of home with the best in modern hospitality, we are expanding our approach and bringing something different to the market, developing dynamic new communities in some of the city’s most exciting boroughs. When we launched the Gessner, we believed our blueprint was the future of renting and Riverstone Heights continues that vision.”
