CZWG-designed cluster of blocks could provide up to 2,000 homes
Tower Hamlets council has given the green light to another huge mixed-use scheme on the Isle of Dogs providing nearly 2,000 homes.
Supermarket Asda and developer Ashbourne Beech Property are promoting the scheme, designed by CZWG Architects, on the site of an existing Asda store on the northern edge of Mudchute park.
The approval follows the council giving outline permission for another major scheme on the northern side of the Isle of Dogs, called North Quay, featuring a series of towers up to 225m tall.
Detailed planning permission for the Asda redevelopment has been granted for a number of the towers, which will provide 526 homes, a new 17,000 sq m foodstore, a primary school and public realm across eight blocks rising from three podium levels.
Blocks for this phase of the scheme range from three to 15 storeys, rising to around 60m in height.
In addition, outline permission for the hybrid application has been granted for a further four blocks, providing up to 1,446 more homes in towers up to 115m in height.
Landscape architect on the scheme is Martha Schwartz Partners, with the project team also including cost consultant Gleeds, planning consultant DP9, waste consultant WSP, services engineer Hoare Lea and structural engineer Walsh Associates.
Meanwhile, the North Quay development also approved is set to provide up to 240,000sq m of office space, 150,000sq m of residential space, 100,000sq m of student accommodation space, 150,000sq m of retail and 25,000sq m of public realm.
