The creative and ambitious nature of surrounding neighborhoods such as Shoreditch and the City have infused the community with life and activity, generating new residential interest in one of London’s historic districts.
Professionals seeking homes in the City Fringe can look forward to a cosmopolitan address within close proximity to London’s key employment districts and world-class educational institutions. Residents at Cityscape will be surrounded by some of the Capital’s most exciting neighbourhoods with local highlights such as the fashionable stalls and shops in and around Spitalfields Market, the variety of bars and restaurants along popular Brick Lane, Commerical Street and in Shoreditch and Hoxton as well as over 130 art galleries in the local area including Whitechapel Gallery, The Hoxton Gallery, White Cube and Electric Blue Gallery.

Cityscape is perfectly situated for London and access beyond, making it the perfect commuter destination. The development is a short one minute walk from Aldgate East tube station on the Circle, Hammersmith and City Lines, with Liverpool Street just one stop away or less than a ten minute walk. Moreover, the historic and international centre of finance, business and commerce, the City is a five minute walk away, home to world famous sites including the Bank of England, The London Stock Exchange and over 500 international banks and global insurance providers. The area has superb transport links to the City, Canary Wharf and West End, reachable in 4, 21 and 28 minutes respectively.
Surrounded by the City of London, the Borough of Hackney and the River Thames, Aldgate is an accessible area with a long history of enterprise and diversity. The growth of the area as a business hub in the 1980’s led to global institutions moving into the area. Historically, small cottage industries populated the district and recently fashion and jewellery designers have moved back in, creating a cultural variety of businesses in the community.
Cityscape will also see the dynamic external refurbishment of Denning Point for Eastend Homes, with an investment of £4m. For further information visit http://www.telfordhomes.plc.uk/cityscape.
