About the area
Located off Longbridge Road, fronting Lodge Avenue on one of its borders and Mayesbrook Park at another, Academy Central, Barking & Dagenham, is superbly placed for shopping, leisure and travel.
In addition to the new homes, key new facilities will be part of life at Academy Central. These include a new primary school that will be occupying a large site nearly four acres in size. It will have expansive playing fields that include facilities such as a multi-use games area for tennis and five-aside football. Broader investment is seeing exciting new developments that will benefit residents of all ages, such as investment in adult education and training in the area.
Set in relaxed, urban surroundings, Academy Central is a development designed to offer a high quality of life.
With chic contemporary new-build homes, Academy Central offers a wide choice of space and layouts – from one, two and three bedroom apartments and three & four bedroom houses. What all the homes at Academy Central share is a high level of style, uncompromising build quality and impressive eco-credentials.
The homes have been designed to relate to the setting of this landmark development in their size and style. Two and three storey houses will be found close to Lodge Avenue, fronting newly created ‘green streets’ that run ribbon-like through the development linking the park to Longbridge Road. Nestled along treelined avenues will be buildings gently rising in height to where the tallest are found, nine storeys high, with their enviable views across Mayesbrook Park. And with the development within 6 miles of the Olympic Village, Stratford, this really is a gold medal worthy development
