New courtyard flats at Hackney Square

Hackney is on an upward march with a new address of 47 flats close to London Fields.

No wonder Hackney is the London borough that has seen the biggest percentage increase in property prices during the past decade. It has been transformed by clever regeneration, first thanks to the 2012 Olympics, then through the extension to the East London line.

Its march forward appears to be relentless, with a host of new projects helping to change what is still a gritty heartland around Mare Street, where the old town hall and famous Hackney Empire are the main hub.

Hackney Square, pictured, sounds as if it is one of the borough’s Georgian enclaves but it is a completely new address, a low-rise scheme of 47 flats set around a landscaped courtyard. Prices from £365,000. Call Telford Homes on 020 3620 8005.
