London-based residential and commercial agency Currell opened a new Hackney Wick Fish Island (HWFI) office in November. The office is centrally located in Hackney Wick at 61-63 Wallis Road, within the London Legacy Development Corporation area.
In addition to selling and letting properties within Hackney Wick and Fish Island, the Currell HWFI office will also serve surrounding areas such as the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP), Stratford and Leyton.
The HWFI area, which lies directly to the west of the Olympic Park, is undergoing a metamorphosis into a vibrant mixed use neighbourhood; ex-industrial buildings and sites are being transformed into new homes and workspaces. It is predicted that by 2025, there will be over 5,000 new homes.
Currell is the first established agent to open an office in the area. Group CEO Anne Currell said, “Our Hackney Wick Fish Island office is a natural extension of our very strong position in East London. In the nineties Hackney Wick and Fish Island had the largest number of artists’ studios in Europe, sitting alongside industrial buildings.
“I have lived in Hackney for over 30 years and have a passion for art, so we want to be part of the story of Hackney Wick and Fish Island; to see new homes created whilst retaining the artistic fabric of the area.”
