Living near a football stadium is becoming desirable. West Ham United, moving to the Olympic Stadium as a tenant in 2016, is selling its Boleyn Ground in east London to help meet its £2.5m-a-year rent. Last week, it appointed Galliard Homes to convert the old ground into 700 homes. "You can really tug at the heartstrings when marketing these kind of homes," said David Galman of Galliard.
