Electra Park, Canning Town, London

Electra Park is a 13-acre estate in Canning Town and sits 3 miles east of the City of London. The business park has a spacious layout of industrial, data and warehouse buildings.

Electra Park provides 21,200 sq m of lettable space across 10 units. It is set on the banks of Bow Creek, West Ham and is is part of a jig-saw of green spaces which link together via the Olympic Park and extend to the Lea Valley Regional Park. Silver clad units flank a central boulevard leading to a contemporary piazza on the old quay-side.  Sealed gravel paving cut by a blue glass line, a silver granite square and a bench in Orsogrill, create an abstract geometry inspired by the line of the original dock wall, which was revealed during excavations. Gabion walls retain sweeping curves of ornamental grasses studded with multi-stem Birch and Prunus serrula.  Birch planted in galvanised planters are scattered across the piazza.
