The events venue and restaurant, the nearest to the Olympic Stadium, won praise from brands including Speedo, which occupied one of its event spaces during the Olympic Games.
However, Forman has criticised Locog for putting ease of access for officials and corporates ahead of promoting the capital and its legacy.
"Locog was mainly concerned with ensuring VIPs had ease of access to the Games at the expense of others, and this was reflected in their transportation and branding policies," he told C&IT. "Access to this [Eastern] part of London was heavily restricted, as if Locog were embarrassed of its bohemian facade. This was an unprecedented opportunity to showcase the legacy opportunities in East London, but Locog scared people away."
Forman added that he faced opposition from Locog after putting up signage to help customers find his venue. "We have created a world-class venue that is a great showcase for the area, but volunteers and staff at stations were not properly briefed on giving directions, but, when we tried to put up signage, Locog tried to obstruct us. "
He went on to label Locog's "once in a lifetime" opportunity to attract footfall to the capital as a failure, citing recent statistics from organisations including HRS.
A London 2012 spokesperson said: "We are disappointed Mr Forman has this view. We do not agree with it."
