International Quarter North

International Quarter North is adjacent to Stratford International Stations. The development will consist of four buildings, two commercial buildings of 300,000sq ft and two others yet to be confirmed.

International Quarter South

During the Games of 2012, this area was used as the main entrance and security area for visitors to the Games and as a hospitality and VIP staging area.

It has since started to be re-developed by a partnership between Lend Lease and LCR into a mixed residential, retail and office space with the following areas:

Glasshouse Gardens

Glasshouse Gardens are two contemporary 17 and 30-storey residential buildings completed in 2016.

They have studios and 1, 2 and 3-bedroom accommodation. Architects were Allies and Morrison, and Tim Bernerd & Partners.

TFL Headquarters

265,000 square feet, occupied from 2017.

FCA Headquarters

The FCA occupies 425,000 sq ft of a 515,000 sq ft building, moving in during 2018. The FCA has its own entrance in Endeavour Square.

Accessed via its 1 Westfield Avenue entrance, it is also occupied by UNICEF, Workable and The Insolvency Service. This building is now fully let.

Cancer Research and British Council

At 2 Redman Place, this building started to be occupied in 2019. Also houses the Fintech company FNZ.

Further Development

The remainder of International Quarter South is being developed for both commercial and residential use. This will include the 21-storey Turing Building at 3 Westfield Avenue, due to open in 2022.
