The Lower Lea Valley is the largest regeneration opportunity within inner London.
Metropolitan Workshop was commissioned to design the masterplan for this waterfront site which has the potential to connect two currently landlocked communities. The proposals include 830 new waterside homes and 20,000m2 of mixed use non-residential space to form a sustainable community focus along the River Lea. Working with XCO2 and a comprehensive design team, the opportunity is to deliver a zero carbon development in line with the London Plan.
Metropolitan Workshop worked with the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation, London boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Newham, local regeneration agencies and RSL’s to collaboratively deliver this exciting and sustainable development.
