This urban regeneration project located in Canning Town provided a total of 271 mixed tenure homes across four residential buildings, together with ground floor retail units, single level basement car park and a landscaped garden. The works were undertaken in a logistically challenging environment adjacent to the busy A13.
Designed to achieve Code 4 of the CfSH, the residential apartments are mixed tenure with over 25% allocated for affordable use. This meant that we had to manage the differing needs of both the private and affordable apartments. In this case we worked with Notting Hill Housing Trust who were the social housing provider.
The retail space was designed to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating.
Following the successful completion of the Phase One works, we were able to work collaboratively with the ECf and their professional team to negotiate the Phase Two works.
The works further aid the regeneration of Canning Town with the provision of 165 new homes; a new market square with stalls and purpose built storage space for traders; new shops and cafes around the southern and eastern edges of the market square; improved access to the A13 underpass; new landscaped open spaces and a new library and community hub.
As part of phase two Thomas North Terrace has been demolished. The remaining tenants were relocated to new homes within phase one of Rathbone Market.
Our success continues at Rathbone where we negotiated Phase 3 of the development to provide a further 216 homes, with blocks ranging from 4-6 storeys situated around a communal garden with a mature oak tree and a secure gated entrance via the public square.
