E15 and E20 storage for Stratford London
Large tracts of land in London E15 and E20 were regenerated for the Olympic Games in 2012, and further regeneration projects are still going on. The vast Westfield Stratford City shopping centre has increased demand for storage from businesses in the area. In particular, extra business storage is often required to hold stock to meet seasonal demands. Stratford’s gyratory system links up with the A12, so Attic Self Storage is a conveniently placed local storage facility.
Local information about Stratford
Stratford was originally an agricultural community, and locals sold their produce in London. In the 18th Century, the area was noted for potato growing. Industrialisation started with the Bow porcelain factory, which operated near Bow Bridge and produced some of the first soft paste porcelain to be made in the country.
By the early 19th Century, Stratford was an important transport hub, with omnibuses and coaches going to London four time every hour, and with hourly coaches passing through from East Anglia.
Many industries moved out of the area in the 20th Century, and the Stratford Shopping Centre was built as an aid to transform the area from a transport hub into a retail and leisure destination. These efforts continued with the Olympic bid for Stratford. The London Olympic 2012 games transformed Stratford, the area was rejuvenated which created a whole new buzz.
Apart from the sporting complex for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre opened in 2011, and new homes were built to encourage people, old and young, to move into the area. Attic Self Storage played a part and helped with the complicated logistics of moving things around and storing both personal and business stock in the run up to the Olympic Games.
Since then things have been a little less hectic in Stratford, but our services are still in demand, from both Stratford businesses and for personal storage for people who are on the move. Our storage facility in Bow is conveniently close to Stratford, so it is very accessible at all times. We have built up an enviable reputation for service and provide a first class experience of using self storage, so try it!
