It seems an awful lot of you would as 17,000 register their interest in the 2,800 available apartments (the newly renovated former athletes’ accommodation) in the Olympic Village.
The good news though is that if you are a Londoner that has signed up you are more likely to be favoured as a buyer. The consortium that owns the flats has said that they will be aiming to house young London families.
The first apartments will be released in August and will have a post code all of their own, E20.
Stuart Corbyn, the head of Qatari Diar Delancey consortium who owns part of the flats said: “Lots of people have made enquiries. Perceptions of Stratford have changed since Westfield opened although people still don’t understand how good the transport links are. There will be a lot of attraction to us to retain all 1,400 apartments and let them certainly for several years to come.
“The village needs to create an identity and to become an established part of London like Tooting, St John’s Wood or Chiswick. The Battersea developers have marketed in the Far East and have been successful but the quality of the facilities management is important to us.
