Three Waters

Coming soon: 100 new, affordable creative studios for artists  

Bow Arts have agreed a deal with joint venture partners Mount Anvil and Peabody to purchase their first building, Three Waters, located where the three waters of Bow Creek, the River Lea and Limehouse Cut meet at Bow Locke.   

This site will have over 70 brand new affordable creative studios for artists on a 999-year lease. The first of its kind in London - that ensures ongoing support for artists, educational services and inward investment into local communities and the arts for perpetuity in east London.   


Three Waters will host a suite of arts programmes and exhibitions open to visitors and residents that will continue the 27 years of making creative activity sustainable, creating opportunities to work, learn and enjoy the arts in Bow and across London.   

This is an exciting undertaking and one which provides an important, permanent legacy for Bow Arts and east London and one on which we will continue to deliver and grow. Through this purchase we can guarantee affordable, lifelong access to the arts and can continue to nurture London’s diverse creativity and talent.    

Magnolia House: Included in the 100 workspaces are a series of well-lit, spacious units perfect for a creative small business or start-up.
