Work to deliver new affordable homes starts at Stroudley Walk


We’re working with developers Muse to create much-needed affordable homes for Tower Hamlets residents at Stroudley Walk, Bromley by Bow.

Work is starting on the site, located between Bruce Road and Bromley High Street, to create 274 homes, with 82 available for local people through London Affordable Rent and 33 for shared ownership, following the appointment of contractor McAleer and Rushe.

These much-needed affordable homes for Tower Hamlets residents will be complemented by a host of new improvements and facilities for the local community, including a new park, community cafe and shops.

Stroudley Walk has a unique heritage, which tells a story of progress and change. Suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst, daughter of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, made her first speech in 1913 there, as part of a campaign to improve the conditions of women living in the East End.

Mahatma Ghandi also stayed in nearby Kingsley Hall for 12 weeks as he visited England in 1931 to discuss constitutional reform in India with British politicians.

Regeneration Masterplan Architects (RM_A), have produced a vision for a vibrant new neighbourhood where this fascinating history is central to the design. There’s a focus on creating a safe place, with a new pocket park and part-pedestrianised street, and a new community café and more shops, for the whole community to enjoy.

With  Muse and RM_A, we’ll be  working closely with the local community, to make sure everyone  thrives throughout the construction..

The development has been made possible by the support of the Greater London Authority.

We anticipate the new homes and facilities at  Stroudley Walk will complete in winter 2025.

“I’m delighted to see Poplar HARCA and Muse’s work to create a vibrant new neighbourhood in Bromley by Bow get underway.

This scheme will provide over 100 much-needed affordable homes in the area as well as a myriad of high-quality facilities including a brand new park, a community cafe and shops.
“Stroudley Walk is another step in our work to build a fairer and more prosperous London for everyone.”

Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, Tom Copley

"This a huge boost to the local community. Tower Hamlets residents will benefit from the creation of an increased number of new affordable homes and community facilities they can be proud of."
