The redevelopment will provide 1,176 new homes, shops, a faith centre, and a community centre.
The new homes will be arranged around a new linear park, with open lawns and varied play spaces, lined with trees and seasonal planting.
The site is located on the northern boundary of the Import Dock. Once famous for the importing of exotic goods during the 18th and 19th century. This heritage was sadly lost when it was heavily bombed during the war and subsequently redeveloped.
Owned and managed by Poplar HARCA, the estate was situated on a hidden pocket of land. Bounded by the A12, A13 and River Lea.
Gasholders to the north east and Erno Goldfinger’s iconic Balfron Tower to the west completed the urban context. Initially a very self-contained site was opened up by a new pedestrian crossing over the A13. This connected the community to the south and East India DLR station.
