“With over £40 billion
investment in the
London Olympics,
2012 will see the
culmination of a
far-reaching
transformation that
is changing East
London forever.”
                                               Stratford City & Westfield




be part of the
                    £40 billion regeneration
In a prime position overlooking the
London 2012 Olympic Park and just 200
metres from the state-of-the-art
International Broadcast Centre built for
the world’s media, all eyes will be on
Stratford. Telford Homes’ Matchmakers
Wharf development is right at the heart
of one of the largest and ambitious
projects ever seen in the Capital.

In a distinctive landmark building, over
200 homes from urban studios to four
bedroom apartments are in a setting
close to the older green open space of
the Lea Valley Park bordering Hackney
Marshes, yet also part of a newly created
21st Century skyline that is signalling far-
reaching regeneration rippling out from
the Olympic Park. As well as new homes,
Matchmakers Wharf will include artists’
studios and workspace for Acme as well
as space for commercial use from
offices to shops.

In addition to its proximity to Olympic
Park, Matchmakers Wharf also has an
enviable position on the waterfront,
being developed where residents can
relax along footpaths, towpaths and
cycle routes - and offering the chic
riverside lifestyle that has led to
waterside properties commanding a
price premium. The River Lea is being
rejuvenated, a new wetland is being
created, while the Olympic Park will be
planted with oak, ash and willow, birch,
hazel & hawthorn, providing a haven for
bird & wildlife in this urban environment.

The opportunities the London 2012
Olympics have brought to Stratford are
unprecedented in this part of the capital.
Matchmakers       Wharf        offers the
opportunity to purchase a quality
Telford Homes property in a prime
location amongst superb surroundings.
Completion of this exceptionally well-
located development is early 2012, so
the opportunity for astute buyers could
not be better timed to benefit from both
the 2012 Olympic Games as well as the
lasting legacy that it will leave.

                    benefit from the
                         olympic legacy
                         At the close of the Olympic Games in 2012 the area will
                         become the largest urban park created in Europe for
                         over 150 years.




25 / Matchmakers Wharf
The 2012 Games will leave a legacy in relation to sport certainly - local
sports clubs and the general community will be able to benefit from the
legacy of world-class sports facilities - but the Games’ legacy is far broader
than sports alone. In terms of geographic scale, the largest urban park
created in Europe for over 150 years will be created as the Olympic Park is
transformed after the Games, and is connected to the Thames Estuary to the
south and northwards to the Hertfordshire countryside.

The Media Village – the International Broadcast Centre and the Main Press
Centre within the Olympic Park - will leave several thousands of square feet
of business floor space that has the potential to generate and be the base of
several thousand new jobs. The state-of-the art media facilities are ideal for
creative, digital and media industries and are on the door step of
Matchmakers Wharf.

In addition, the extensive legacy in relation to transport – the DLR alone is
investing some £80m in its network – from line extensions to new stations
and enhanced capacity is one which will have enduring positive effects on
the area. Matchmakers Wharf is perfectly located to benefit from these
various aspects of the legacy of the Games – a legacy which is likely to
provide a powerful momentum which will last for many years into the future.

At 1.9 million square feet Westfield at Stratford City will not only be a major shopping

John Lewis and Marks &Spencer to smaller boutiques with art and culture, combining
the next generation of contemporary shopping with events and exhibitions that
change throughout the year. Exterior and interior space will merge and flow, there
will be quarters with their own distinct character, while a stunning central arcade will
form the central ‘street’ edged by a magnificent gallery structure.
Westfield will also provide a wealth of dining experiences and watering holes, many
of the restaurants having stunning terrace views overlooking theOlympic Park. In total
there will be over 300 fashion, food and lifestyle brands, with additional attractions
such as a state-of-the-art 12 screen Vue cinema. There will also be two hotels, while
parking for 5,000 cars will be available combined with seamless direct links to
underground stations as well as DLR and rail links.
