A striking new designer development from renowned developers, GS8, enviably located just moments from Forest Gate station. This handsome Art Deco creation is home to a trio of impressive townhouses. Stunning views of The City skyline can be seen from many of the properties.

GS8, recently profiled by The Times, are a renowned young firm with a growing reputation for eco friendly, locally minded contributions to the community and perfectly practical, architecturally innovative additions to the local skyline.

Bringing flair to Forest Gate, Upton Lofts combines art deco imagery with modern design to deliver a unique boutique development of 10 apartments and 3 houses: the first of its kind in E7. With a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes, Upton Lofts has something for everyone; young locals, families, and commuters looking to take advantage of the new Elizabeth Line.

Like all GS8 developments it is, first and foremost, designed with the idea of creating and strengthening a community in mind. Once a hub for London’s famous musicians, this East End community remains an incredibly attractive conservation area, and still boasts a thriving artistic community.

"when i decided to move to forest gate a few years ago, i was drawn by the great housing stock, the green spaces of wanstead flats and the friendly, up-and-coming vibe of independent boutiques, eateries, and bars. on top of this, crossrail is arriving here soon, which means getting across london will be even faster and easier. it really was a no brainer.

I’ve spent many a happy weekend walking on the flats and in Wanstead Park. Often, I’ll finish up with an all-trimmings roast at The Holly Tree or meet friends for a drink at Burgess & Hall Wines (Roz and Paul there really know their grapes!). Or perhaps a fantastic curry from The Wanstead Kitchen. After living here for a while, you really start to feel happy and settled. I love the arty, independent feel of Forest Gate, and I get the impression I’m not the only one — it’s something all the locals nurture and support." JOSEPH EARNSHAW E7 BRANCH MANAGER

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Upton Lofts, Forest Gate, E7 — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate will be on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
