Only a few months ago, our 500th resident Ian revealed "I look forward to seeing who the 1000th resident will be". Get Living London is proud to announce that it has now welcomed its 1,000th resident to the growing community. Christin Ender, a 25 year old digital marketer from Bow has moved into East Village E20 - London's newest neighbourhood.
Christin's arrival comes after a packed summer at East Village which saw the area brought to life through a series of eclectic events for the whole community. The East End Film Festival and Secret Cinema's "Back to the Future" entertained film fans in the neighbourhood, with the summer brought to a close by the Vintage Car Boot Sale in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and our own East Village E20 Fair.
Paralympic Champion Ellie Simmonds OBE recently returned to East Village to open a new Sainsbury's Local; shortly to be joined by local and independent retailers, complimenting the choice at neighbouring Westfield Stratford City.
Christin and her two housemates now live just a stone's throw away from the main entrance of the former Athletes' Village. Christin commented "knowing that all of the homes were built, brand-new by several different architects for the Olympic athletes really appealed to me. My favourite thing about living at East Village so far is enjoying my new apartment, the outdoor spaces and the great community feeling. It really feels like there is a lot of open-space here and plenty of parks and greenery. I love the fact that although there are many apartment complexes it really feels so spacious and friendly.
She added "It has a different vibe to a lot of other areas in London. The main benefit of renting with Get Living London has to be the affordable rent prices with no agency fees or hidden costs. Equally, the property consultants and managers are very friendly and easy to get along with."
