Whitechapel is a great home for financial workers who want a quick commute to the City or Canary Wharf and entrepreneurs looking for a short bike ride to Old Street’s tech hub.
It also attracts the fresh energy of artists and small business owners, while retaining the character and community of one of London’s most historic neighbourhoods.
In summer 2021, the Elizabeth Line comes to Whitechapel, putting Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street and Stratford just one stop away and providing a direct link to Heathrow Airport. Combined with the on-going £300m regeneration masterplan to create employment, lifestyle and educational opportunity in the area, it’s clear that Whitechapel is fast becoming the place to be in London’s East End.

The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) will meet Whitechapel in a revamped station, making commutes faster and more comfortable.
A decade in development, the new rail service will more than halve journey times across London and give Whitechapel residents a direct line to Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street, Stratford and Heathrow Airport.
Whitechapel house prices are set to rise by 25% ahead of the Elizabeth Line opening.
Whitechapel's resurgence is part of a broader trend that has seen renewed investment and interest in East London.
East Bank is a £1.1bn project that will bring organisations including BBC, UCL, V&A, Sadler's Wells, UAL and The Smithsonian Instituation to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - just one stop away from Whitechapel on the Elizabeth Line.
Whitechapel is currently in the middle of a 15-year regeneration effort as set out by the £300m Whitechapel Vision. Projects underway include:
£105m town hall
New urban quarter of homes, commercial buildings and public spaces
An extension to the Queen Mary University, a new Barts Life Sciences medical research campus is soon to open only two streets away
Flexible workspaces and industry hubs
Seven new public spaces
More cycle and pedestrian routes
Apartments in regeneration zones average more than double the sale price of those in non-regeneration areas.
The Silk District falls into the perfect buyer hotspot, meeting demand for competitively-priced homes in an area with excellent transport links.
