Bow Quarter is so famous it was featured in an article in the Financial Times about desirable places to live on 14 Febuary 2009, highlighting it as a 'gated community', meaning secure and friendly! Built in the mid-1800s, it became historic due to a labour strike, known as the Matchstick Girls Strike. It began its conversion to apartments in the late 1980s. There are about 700 flats on site with a generally young and friendly community of residents. The estate includes its own well-equipped gym and pool (with steam room, etc), and the landscaping looks wonderful in the Springtime. The development has 24 hour security.
This is a one bedroom apartment refurbished in 2009 and is suitable for 1-2 persons. It is fully private and self-contained, with own bathroom with shower, etc. Laundry facilities are communal on the same level.
The area is about 10 minutes north of Canary Wharf centre and about the same from the City of London, Tower Bridge, Liverpool Street etc. The apartment is about 5-7 minutes walk from either Docklands Light Railway at Bow Church or the underground at Bow Road (District Line - one stop from Cental Line at Mile End).
