Berkeley Homes has just launched TwelveTrees Park, a 3,838-home, mixed-use regeneration scheme that aims to make West Ham an integral part of the wider transformation of Stratford, east London.

The award-winning housebuilder has stated its intention to make the project a benchmark for future living in London with health and wellbeing at the heart of its design, combining city living with expansive green space on the doorstep, and make it an appealing, up-and-coming district to choose to live.

TwelveTrees Park offers a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, as well as apartments purpose-built for rent and homes available under Shared Ownership – “something for everyone”, as the developer describes it. It enables people to “live connected”: to London and beyond with fantastic transport links; to nature with over 50% of the site dedicated to green space; to neighbours through a strong community focus; and connected digitally with a fully WiFi-enabled park.

Evergreen Point is the first building to launch at TwelveTrees Park and comprises studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. A collection of penthouses are also in the final stages of development. Sat in the heart of the development and offering panoramic views across London, the building is located at the entrance to the park, close to the community hub and to West Ham station, giving residents access to the city.

Residents can benefit from ample in-built storage, and have access to a gym, business lounge and 24-hour concierge service. There will also be a car park with electric charging points and bicycle storage.

With over half the scheme being green space, encouraging active, outdoor lifestyles and providing places to relax, reflect and restore, Berkeley sees TwelveTrees Park as “a blueprint for healthier, balanced living in the city”. The on-site community gardens offer residents flexible space for activities, from gardening to education to group meetings and parties. The 4.5 acre linear park will be at the heart of the development and a focal point for people to meet and socialise, with restaurants and cafés spilling out into the park as part of a new shopping and leisure quarter at the development.

Reflecting 21st-century living, the central park will be fully WiFi-enabled, meaning those who work or study from home will have the flexibility to be outdoors and surrounded by nature, while maker-space studios support London’s budding creatives in the pursuit of their passions.

There will be a new, 1,000-pupil state-of-the-art home for the East London Science School will include a specially designed science garden with an outdoor lab and physics garden, a sports hall and a lecture theatre. The science school will be a focal point for the entire community with the facilities used after school hours for activities and events, such as hosting talks on current trending topics and holding fitness classes.

TwelveTrees ParkIn what was once an industrial part of London, TwelveTrees Park will breathe new life into it and transform derelict brownfield land into a thriving new community that reflects the history and distinctive character of the local area. It will open up the site, creating two new footbridges and updating the existing road bridge, including direct access to West Ham station.

Positioned between Stratford, the Olympic Park and Canary Wharf, TwelveTrees Park benefits from five rail and Tube lines on its doorstep, meaning easy access to the city centre and its landmark shopping, tourist and business destinations, including Canary Wharf in only seven minutes. With quick links to Crossrail, and London City Airport just 10 minutes away, residents can easily explore the capital and connect to destinations worldwide.

Justin Tibaldi, divisional managing director at Berkeley Homes (Capital), commented: “We’re very excited to unveil our vision for TwelveTrees Park – a vibrant new neighbourhood that will be a gamechanger for West Ham and the wider regeneration of the lower Lea Valley. This will be one of the best-connected developments in London, with five major transport links just moments from your home providing fast and regular transportation across the city.

“TwelveTrees Park will complement the growing transformation of East London, bridging the gap between Stratford, the Olympic Park and Canary Wharf. Already a number of exciting cultural institutions and well-known brands are making the area their home, bolstered by the arrival of Crossrail and improved connections to central London.

“While the last few months have been tough for many people, the Covid-19 pandemic has shone a light on the positive spirit present in communities across the country. We want to harness this by creating a place people will come and enjoy – whether that’s to live, work, visit or simply to sit outdoors in the park – indeed, the value of green spaces has never been so evident.

“The development enables everyone to live connected – connected to London with the exceptional transport links, connected to nature with the acres of parkland on site, and connected to each other through the shared outdoor spaces and, when it becomes possible again, by attending the activities that will be on offer at the community hub. TwelveTrees Park is the next chapter in East London’s fascinating story.”

Prices start from £385,000 for a studio. The sales suite, a short walk from West Ham station, is open Monday to Saturday, 10.00am to 6.00pm with a late-night opening on Thursday until 8.00pm, and Sundays 10.00am to 4.00pm. While social distancing restrictions remain in place, visits are by appointment only.

A Guide To Part Buy Part Rent
With Home Reach you buy a share of your chosen newly built home and pay a monthly rent on the part you don’t buy. Your budget will decide the size of the share you buy, rather than the size of your home. So, you might decide to buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.

You are able to purchase your share in either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, you will need to allow for a minimum of 5% deposit. The larger your deposit (typically 10%) the lower your mortgage repayments are likely to be.
