Urban Island doesn't follow trends it sets them. Come home to where East End colour and culture meets contemporary chic, headlong in an explosion of style and substance. 47 distinctive one and two bedroom apartments in a striking seven storey landmark building, coupled with beautifully decked landscaping, and a conservation area setting. Urban Island really is unique.

Set in a conservation area, on a curb of the River Lea, Urban Island is accessed only by a bridge, which enhances the calm feel of Island living. Like the water that surrounds it, contrast and colour is always apparent.

The vibrancy of the Three Mills Film Studios, performance arts, design, cultural activities and entertainment clash colourfully with green open spaces, heritage buildings and waterways.

From this unique base choose where to socialise, to eat, and to unwind in the surrounding areas of Bow, Hackney, Stratford, Wapping and Shoreditch. From the wealth of Indian Cuisine on offer in Brick Lane to the best of Vietnamese dishes in Kingsland Road. The old East End has so much to offer. Check out the Hoxton Square area for a great night out, or Spitalfields and Petticoat Lane for a real East End shopping experience.

Urban Island is located adjacent to Three Mills island next to the film studios, which are situated at the end of Three Mill Lane.

The nearest tube station to Urban Island is Bromley by Bow, Exit the station and turn left down into an underpass.

Within five minutes, hotfoot it to Bromley by Bow underground station, which connects with the Hammersmith and City and District Lines.

Stratford mainline station, Bow Church and Devons Road DLR are within walking distance, so there's still time for that coffee and croissant.

Rising to seven floors in a striking, contemporary design, Urban Island represents the creation of a landmark building that has been given depth and proportion through the use of stepped and varying roof heights.

Full of contemporary flair both inside and out, Urban Island features 47 one and two bedroom apartments, each with its own outdoor space including balconies and some terraces.

Three lifts serve the apartments, and, to add to the sleek drama of its lines, the building includes key external features such as galvanised steel balconies and cedar wood panelling.

To capture and retain all natural light, extensive use has been made of glazing features in each apartment, as well as in the communal areas where glazing is a focal point in staircases and in glass screen walls.

Along with high specification throughout, the development also has a podium deck landscaped courtyard and there is a provision for underground parking.

Every apartment has its own outdoor space, some benefiting from more than one balcony or an additional terrace. Sliding doors are also featured in some of the two bedroom apartments allowing further opportunity to extend living space.
