Great Eastern Buildings, Hackney Central E8

The very best of East London on your doorstep

18 residential homes designed to sit comfortably on the site of the former Great Eastern Railway premises in Hackney Central.

The development offers a good mix of accommodation to suit a variety of households with thoughtfully designed internal and external spaces.


Building layout and location


Great Eastern is positioned no more than a 5 minute stroll to one of Hackneys’ most popular parks, London Fields. The 50m heated Lido is one of the main attractions within the park. Tennis courts, play equipment and a paddling pool are also available making the park an excellent local facility for Hackney residents. Nearby Broadway Market is home to independent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes and stalls offering amazing fresh produce, authentic street food and original clothing and arts and crafts in London. All in a little East End street between the Regent’s Canal and London Fields; a shopping street nestled in the heart of Hackney, East London. Hackney Central and London Fields train stations are both within walking distance of Great Eastern providing access to the wider city and beyond.

Exterior space
