Athletes Village

Retail

We want to make Athletes Village a place where people want to be, and want to stay. So among other things, the development will feature a variety of independent, local shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Living here, you’ll be able to buy everything you need and more, right on your doorstep. There’ll be specialist stores selling everything from fresh bread every morning and a quick cappuccino to fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish or a deli treat to take home.

Local businesses will benefit too, by being given the chance to provide useful services, as well as creating jobs.

Close by, there’ll be a major new shopping centre. Just a short walk away it will include major department stores and well-known high street names, as well as smaller independent and ‘designer’ shops.

And because Athletes Village will have such efficient transport links to the rest of London and beyond, residents will have easy access to ‘retail therapy’ elsewhere, with places like Oxford Street and the West End just a 15 or 20 minute tube or train journey away.
