By 2025 it is envisaged that a minimum of £22 billion will have been invested in the area, creating over 35,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs. Ambitious and impressive projects already completed or underway demonstrate the existing commitment from global investors making their mark in Newham.


In Stratford the game-changing Olympic Park and Westfield Stratford City herald an exciting future for the north of the borough with the ambitious International Quarter development about to get underway. The £3.7 billion regeneration of Canning Town and Custom House continues to add to an exciting skyline, while the wholesale redevelopment of the Royal Docks -London's first new Enterprise Zone - is already home to the iconic £60 million Siemens Crystal global sustainability centre and Britain's first urban cable car crossing the Thames from ExCeL to the O2 Arena.


Decades of investment in transport infrastructure have made Newham one of Europe's best-connected centres. London City Airport offers direct services to New York and most European capitals while rail services continue to grow, with Crossrail opening in 2018 with five new stations providing high speed connections to Heathrow Airport and all of Central London.

Whilst Newham's transport links are clear to see, the 2012 Games has provided the entire borough with a phenomenal technological legacy. Located in the heart of London's East End, close to the Olympic Park, Tech City is home to the world's next generation of digital entrepreneurs whilst iCITY will transform the Press and Broadcast Centres in the Olympic Park into a world-class hub of innovation and enterprise to deliver a lasting legacy from the London 2012 Olympics.
