Approval granted for East London Crossharbour District Centre | 10 October 2012
It has been revealed that plans for a Crossharbour District Centre in East London have been approved, according to worldinteriordesignnetwork.com.
The project – which will provide a supermarket, retail space, community space and 850 residential units – was given the go-ahead this week by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
The space will be constructed by Broadway Malyan, an urbanism and design practice. Its director of architecture, Geoff Brocklehurst, commented on broadwaymalyan.com: “The scheme is extremely complex and this successful milestone is testament to our integrated team of diverse design and public consultation experts working in close partnership with the client and local community over a four-year period.”
Before the practice can get started though, the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, must also approve the planning application. If he is happy with the plans, work will begin at the Isle of Dogs location in 2013.
The construction aims to enhance the local community by providing a commercial shopping location and employment opportunities, as well as build better transport links.
If approved, the area can expect a vibrant new high street, pocket parks and informal leisure areas, more children’s play parks and creative landscaping.
