A series of suites, one and two-bedroom apartments have been released at London City Island.

The homes from EcoWorld Ballymore will sit within a 12-acre site that is surrounded by the River Lea and connected to Canning Town station by its own bridge.

The 1,700 homes on the Leamouth Peninsula have been designed in line with the history of the area and inspired by east London’s creative industries.

Each of the 10 apartment buildings will be a single bold colour and will feature apartments that have a “warehouse aesthetic” with open-plan living spaces and “loft-style” features.

The development will include its own grocer, gym, restaurants, shops, creative hubs and al fresco spaces.

One of the stand-out facilities will be a red swimming pool within the island’s private residents’ club the City Island Arts Club.

Ballymore Group UK managing director, John Mulryan, said: “The pool features bright, seafaring red tiles - the trademark hue which appears throughout the island.

"Striking block colours are one of the iconic stylistic features at London City Island, with each of the ten apartment buildings constructed from glossy brickwork in a single vibrant colour.

"This focus on design is a hallmark of EcoWorld Ballymore developments; at London City Island, the island’s identity takes much of its inspiration from London’s rich riverside heritage and its privileged location beside the River Lea.”

From 2018 residents and visitors will be able to catch a glimpse through floor-to-ceiling windows of the English National Ballet rehearsing after the company relocates there.
