Spratt’s Complex is a housing development in Poplar.

The former pet food factory was converted into approximately 150 live-work units beginning in 1985. This was one of the first such warehouse conversions in London.

The complex, which once operated as Spratt’s dog biscuit factory, consists of six multi-story warehouses made of reinforced concrete grouped around courtyards.
