ArchitecturePLB are underway with Stage 3 design development for a residential led mixed use scheme for LB Tower Hamlets, due to be submitted for full planning at the end of May. The scheme comprises a mix of 1,2 and 3 bed units, 45 in total, arranged in a nine storey apartment block with other uses at ground and first floor including potential sixth form provision and community use spaces. The scheme will provide a mixed tenure of social and market rented, with a minimum of 35% affordable.
The site is a former doctor’s surgery on St Paul’s Way and the development forms part of the broader programme of regeneration for the neighbourhood. A feasibility study and viability assessment was completed last year, including a public exhibition to facilitate community engagement. The design optimises the capacity of a constrained site and with associated public realm improvements will serve as a new focal point for the local community.
