Launched in June 2014, Roof East is an urban park, rooftop bar and an open-air cinema, situated directly opposite Stratford Station and Westfield shopping centre.
Managed by Urban Space Management, this 8th floor rooftop space generated immediate interest from the day it opened its doors to the public. Formerly an empty car park, USM joined forces with Groundwork London to transform the space into a multifunctional park, including setting up a bar and a large open plan seating area to complement spectacular views over the Queen’s Elizabeth Olympic Park. The rooftop also features an open-air cinema, proving remarkably popular amongst film lovers from around London.
Created with local community in mind, Roof East is also set to facilitate kids and family activities during summer holidays, as well as art shows and events.
