Final Homes Remaining at Affordable Leaside Lock Development

Bromley by Bow, E3

Guinness Homes has unveiled the final release of Shared Ownership homes at Leaside Lock, their flagship development in Bromley-by-Bow. With the successful sale of all one- and three-bedroom apartments since launch, 2024 marks the last opportunity for buyers to purchase the remaining two-bedroom Shared Ownership homes at the hugely popular

East London development.


With the average property price for the area currently sitting at £423,629 on the open market, Leaside Lock offers hopeful buyers a much-needed chance to purchase a home at a fraction of the price – with prices for a 25% share of a two-bedroom apartment up to 72% less than the average Bromley-by-Bow home, at £116,875.


Hellyn Fairbrother, London and South East Regional Sales Manager at Guinness Homes, comments, “We have seen overwhelming popularity for our Shared Ownership homes at Leaside Lock since we launched back in 2021, with every phase at the development selling out. Prospective buyers are looking to avoid rising costs in the area, while not compromising on style, size and location. With the final remaining two-bedroom Shared Ownership apartments at Leaside Lock available, this will be the last opportunity to secure a place at this sought-after development, and we are expecting to see a great deal of interest over the coming weeks.”


The major development has become an established focal point for the area, comprising of a total of 965 homes. The neighbourhood has been carefully designed so that residents have everything on their doorstep. A broad range of unbeatable amenities are planned on site, including a café, a gym, a convenience store, and co-working space, all set to open in 2025. Situated on the banks of the attractive River Lea, residents at Leaside Lock can enjoy East London’s bustling canal network, home to stretches of outdoor space alongside the world-famous London Aquatics Centre and Westfields Stratford.

Bathrooms and en suites are finished with sleek sanitaryware and underfloor electric heating is fitted in all apartments. Recognising the importance of outdoor space in London, private balconies offer spectacular London views, and this space allows residents to create an extension of their living space.

Located close to a plethora of local shops, restaurants and bars, residents at Leaside Lock benefit from a buzzing central London neighbourhood.
