Massive scheme in east London given the green light

Silvertown Quays

A former flour mill will be restored as part of the plans for Silvertown Quays

Plans to transform the Silvertown Quays area of east London by a team of developers including Chelsfield have been given final planning approval by London mayor Boris Johnson.

Fletcher Priest has masterplanned the scheme with other practices working on it including AHMM, Allies and Morrison, Stanton Williams, Eric Parry and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

The Silvertown Partnership consortium behind the £3.5bn overhaul comprises Chelsfield, First Base and Macquarie Capital.

Plans include building a bridge to connect the site with the Crossrail station at Custom House, restoring the former Millennium Mills flour mill and providing cafes, restaurants, commercial and community buildings.
