Stockchester lies on the banks of the mighty river Bow, untill recently the city was famous for its huge warehouses and shipped out goods all across the globe. During the 1980's the city began to boom as both Asian and American investors swarmed into the city making the city an international financial hub.
As the south side of the river prospered, the gritty north became a no go area, filled with poverty and urban decay. In the past 10 years however, the north has seen huge investment in its infrastructure, and many of its warehouses have been turned into huge apartments and galleries. the regeneration was furthered by Stockchester being chosen to hold the XL Games, this created a world class sports centre and new housing greatly benefiting this once depressed area.
