Hackney is a very diverse and multicultural area and has undergone massive regeneration in recent decades. It is one of London's newest up and coming areas and the large stock of Georgian and Victorian terrace properties in Hackney are going through a rapid process of gentrification, while many new apartments, warehouse conversions and period restorations are being built. People looking to for flats to rent in Hackney will find new properties becoming available on a very regular basis.
Hackney is proud of its status as inner London's 'greenest borough' and London Transport's 'best bike borough 2006’ awards. It has 62 parks and open spaces, covering 815 acres (3.3 km2). Seven Hackney parks have now achieved Green Flag status. Hackney Marshes play host to the largest collection of football pitches in Europe; and will be the site of part of the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Key to its regeneration is the introduction of the East London extension line within the Borough, linking parts of Hackney with the Underground network in 2010. This has also encouraged a splurge of new property developments including the very impressive Dalston Square.
Our Hackney Office covers properties in E8, E9, E5, N1, N16, and N5 and we have a large selection of both houses and flats in Hackney to let or buy.
