Barratt London sponsors inaugural Walking on Water exhibition this week at Grand Designs Live.
‘Walking on Water’ - an exhibition celebrating the regeneration of East London by Water City CIC in conjunction with Grand Designs Live - opened this week in the main Boulevard at London ExCel.
Barratt London was proud to sponsor the exhibition, which was laid out as a walking tour through East London; from the O2 to the Royal Docks, then to Three Mills, Stratford and the Lower Lea Valley. All along the way the tour meets innovators such as Barratt London, the public sector and local communities who are helping to transform the city. The event celebrated what has been achieved, and sought to cement links between neighbouring communities and find ways to work together to make this emerging piece of the city a fantastic place to live, work and play.
Lord Andrew Mawson OBE, Chairman at Water City CIC commented “If you ‘join the dots’ a new city is emerging in the East of London that is bringing together entrepreneurs and innovators, artists, business people and local communities, and galvanizing action. We’re pleased to be working with the partners who are taking part in this event, who are all building new relationships, engaging with the place and its people and demonstrating what this all means in practice.”
As sponsors of Walking on Water, Barratt London showcased some of their regeneration initiatives in East London.
Regional Land Director at Barratt London, Greg Tillotson commented “We have delivered a number of complex regeneration schemes across East London, including St Andrews in Bromley-by-Bow, Barrier Point and Capital East in the Royal Docks, Elektron in East India Dock, Pierhead Lock on the Isle of Dogs and Dalston Square in Dalston. Collectively these schemes provide much needed new private and affordable housing, transport links, public realm and community facilities, helping to build communities and leaving a lasting legacy for London.”
