Other nearby destinations, include the capital’s technology hub, famously nicknamed Silicon Roundabout. Known to most as the point where Old Street meets City Road, it links the financial square mile with the creatives of Clerkenwell, setting an evident trend as the preferential location for innovation and commerce. In the other direction are Shoreditch and Brick Lane, which are home to independent galleries, boutique shops, buzzy markets, restaurants, bars and clubs.

Location

As well as a surge in regeneration and a plethora of new transport links, Hackney is now starring as a destination in itself.

The local parks, relaxed restaurants, boutique stores, farmers markets and friendly pubs are all a true representation of what the local Hackney community represents.

Over spilling with culture, art, history and touch of “cool”, Hackney is on the map and here to stay.

BUSES

Hop on the 38 to the West End and Victoria, the 76 and 243 to Waterloo, the 149 to London Bridge and the 30 to Marble Arch.

TRAINS

Haggerston is on the train line which serves Richmond, Highbury & Islington and North Woolwich, whilst London Fields provides a speedy route to Liverpool Street and the Central line. The North London Line (NLL) which passes through Hackney via Dalston Kingsland, Hackney Central, Homerton and Hackney Wick, has been upgraded, with new and more frequent trains, and refurbished and rebuilt stations. All services are run by London Overground.

TUBES

Old Street and Angel can be reached by bus. The arrival of the East London line means direct connections to Bishopsgate and the City. Hackney’s first tube-style link via the extension of the East London Line is part of a £1.4 billion investment programme which will see a wide range of benefits to be rolled out by Transport for London (TfL) in time for the 2012 Olympics.

CYCLING

Cycle routes also abound in the area, and cycling as a means of transport has caught the imagination of locals, with fixed gear bikes being a particular favourite – so much so that there is even a fixed gear bike polo club in nearby Brick Lane.

Services

INSULATION

The building is highly insulated, and requires much less heating than most other buildings, with the benefit of lower heating bills.

HEATING

Heating will be by radiators fed from a low energy, highly sustainable energy source. Timeclocks and thermostats provide control for the central heating.

The heat source is an exhaust air heat pump unit, which is more efficient than a gas boiler and has lower running costs compared to gas. With gas prices expected to rise in the future, this is a way of reducing the annual energy bill.

VENTILATION

A ventilation system with heat recovery provides fresh air all year round. This keeps all rooms fresh and removed unwanted humidity and odours from bathrooms and the kitchen. Fuel bills are further reduced by recovering the heat from the outgoing air and using it to heat your hot water.

WATER

Mains water is boosted to each dwelling to provide a much higher pressure than is available from the mains. All outlets will be provided with a good water pressure. The building is also provided with a rainwater harvesting system to be as sustainable as possible.

LIGHTING

Low energy lighting is used to improve energy efficiency, 75% of light fittings are low energy.

ACCESS

A video door entry system is provided to control access to the building.
