Award-winning rental operator Get Living launches Portlands Place, a new Build to Rent scheme at East Village, Stratford. The scheme includes 524 homes – a mix of studio, one, two, three and four bedroom apartments. The spacious, open-plan apartments come fully-furnished with three interior styles to choose from – including high-spec Grundig kitchen appliances, and include either their own enclosed or Juliette balcony. 

Meeting the demands of modern living, each furniture package designed by David Phillips supports the flexibility of hybrid working with individual desk spaces. Advanced sustainable technology, such as a ‘master light switch’ is uniquely integrated to manage and reduce each apartments lighting waste.

Set across two residential towers – ‘Hightail’ at 30 floors and ‘Skylark’ at 25 floors, the striking buildings, designed by internationally-renowned architectural practice Hawkins\Brown, are adjoined with a stunning and unique Skybridge located on the 10th floor. Portlands Place launches in a year which marks ten years since the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics.

Skybridge gives residents exclusive access to 7,836 sq ft of indoor state-of-the-art amenity spaces and 10,473 sq ft of outdoor private roof terraces. Both homes and shared spaces offer unparalleled views across the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village, East London and beyond.

“In a momentous summer for Stratford – marking ten years of Olympic legacy – we’re looking forward to opening the doors to Portlands Place, our highly-anticipated addition to East Village. It is a completely unique development for East London. The Skybridge is not only an engineering feat but it is also a first for Get Living in offering premium and unparalleled sky-high amenities, taking renting with us to another level.

“For residents empowered to work-from-wherever, in addition to providing home office furniture, we’ve curated spaces where people can roam and feel inspired while still having that sense of community and opportunity to connect with others – whether that be at a lunchtime fitness class or over an after-work glass of wine with neighbours and friends.”

Jackie Robinson, Director of East Village

Portlands Place takes residents’ health and wellbeing to new heights – physically, socially and mentally. Tailored wellness spaces include a yoga studio, a Technogym equipped fitness suite and spin studio. The wellness spaces are free to use at any time and will also be programmed by luxury wellness platform, Antidote. Residents will have access to six complimentary trainer-led classes per week, and an introductory personal training session.

A fully equipped ‘Come Dine With Us’ open plan kitchen and dining room serving panoramic views for up to 20 people is also available to hire via the resident app, which helps cater to resident everyday needs and connects the community of Get Living residents. Additional spaces and amenities include a built-in wine dispenser with wines curated by E20’s Darkhorse restaurant, a screening room and lounge, dedicated resident hosts and a varied section of individual and social spaces comprising lounge pockets, phone booths and high-tables for those working remotely. 

Connecting these impressive spaces, the 23 metre-long Skybridge boasts a floor-to-ceiling and double heighted (5.2 metre) glass-covered walkway. Flooded with natural light and filled with foliage, the Skybridge maximises indoor and outdoor living spaces.
