A Tower that stands out

The facilities are excellent, the gym has enough machines in for personal use and is usually empty enough to do your own thing. There have been recent improvements with the addition of a games room, which has a great selection of things. The design is good, although with the changing of the cladding in the court adjacent to the property, it doesn’t look its best at present. The management are friendly and helpful from the interactions I have had with them.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The Olympic Park and it’s facilities, as well as Westfield are all right on your doorstep. There are great transport links into the centre of London and to Canary Wharf.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

How bright the rooms get with just the blinds covering the windows.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They have been quick and responding, and fairly accepting of the requests I have made.

The building is tall, made of glass and has a beautiful illuminating strip on the side at night that changes colour- it makes you proud to live here. The inside of the property including the foyer and flats are all modern and clean. There is a 24hr concierge service, a gym, a TV/pool table room and a “relaxation” room with books and yoga equipment. The management are easy to contact via the concierge or a number of emails and have always been helpful when needed.
The most impressive part of this property is the beautiful view of London that it has- we face central London and can easily see the Shard/Walk Talkie/Gherkin etc as well as the O2 arena and the Olympic stadium. It is such a priviledge to have this view and especially seeing spectacular sunsets every day.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This property is less than 10mins walk from Stratford station which has train, tube (central/jubilee), DLR, bus and TFL line links. It is also 5-10mins by bus to other tube stations (District line) as well as being immediately next to bus stops that supply all of the above.
It is also 10mins walk from Westfields which has all of the shopping, food and entertainment options you could wish for. It is also immediately next to the Olympics venues which boasts very nice riverside walks and beautifully maintained parks.
It is also immediately next to a Tesco Express where you can purchase all of your shopping, however if larger shops are needed there is a Tesco Metro 5mins drive away.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The building is supplied with hot water seperately to normal water which means a different billing system, and there is no choice of who your hot water supplier is therefore prices aren’t negotiable.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

The price is expensive and ideally it would be cheaper, however for the quality and the surrounding area it is in keeping.

Stratford Halo looks like a very pleasant place to live. In my opinion, it’s got one of the best locations in East London, close to Westfield mall (where my girlfriend would definitely spend most Saturdays!) Stratford station and the Olympic park, so there’s loads going on for young people.

The building is impressive – a real landmark. The flat is big enough and nice and bright, but I would say it’s clear not as much effort went into the decoration inside the tower as out. You can’t beat the views though! We are viewing the East Village development next week so we’ll see.

A magnet for YouTube celebrities, Stratford Halo pairs superb views with a happening East London setting

Review Date Nov 2018

Stratford Halo, previously known as 150 High Street Stratford, is a landmark 42-storey tower in the heart of East London’s buzzing Stratford district. At 443-feet tall, this glittering skyscraper is up there with the capital’s tallest. It’s popular with YouTube stars, even being dubbed ‘The Sidemen Tower’ due to the members of online sensation, The Sidemen, that moved into the building in 2014 and 2015.

It partly owes its popularity to its location. Stratford Halo couldn’t be better placed – just a short walk from the world-famous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and the 2012 Athletes’ Village. The latter has been transformed into a fully-fledged neighbourhood, packed with coffee shops, kitsch cocktail bars and restaurants. Westfield Stratford City is also close by, a mix of fashion, food and entertainment, where you can shop for high street favourites and designer names, before catching dinner and a film.

With Stratford International and Stratford Underground both an easy stroll away, the development’s transport links are excellent. Residents can expect to reach King’s Cross in seven minutes, Canary Wharf in 10, and the West End in 20. So, whether you’re in the mood for eating, shopping or a spot of theatre, it’s all accessible.

As for homes at Stratford Halo, they encompass one, two and three-bedroom apartments, all with open-plan living, floor-to-ceiling windows and contemporary décor in common. The views are the big draw here, taking in the borough’s vast greenery, Canary Wharf and distant skyline icons like The Shard.

Onsite facilities are designed to keep residents’ lives stress-free. The tower’s gym and concierge service are both 24 hours, plus there’s space for car parking – a real luxury in this area of the capital.
