McAslan working on first phase of Thameside West mixed-use scheme

Proposals for a Foster + Partners-masterplanned redevelopment of a riverside site in east London have been sent in to planners.

Developers Keystone London and GLA Land & Property are behind the £3bn Thameside West scheme in Newham which will run along a 16ha strip of land in Silvertown next to the Royal Docks.

The scheme will include 5,000 mixed-tenure homes, 200,000 sq ft of industrial and workspace along with 75,000 sq ft of shops, restaurants and bars.

In addition, the masterplan includes a new primary school, a new one-kilometre riverside walkway, two new riverside parks and a new DLR station on the site.

The first phase of the scheme has been drawn up by architect John McAslan & Partners and will include 460 mixed-tenure homes and 35,000 sq ft of workspace on the site of a former Carlsberg Brewery.

Keystone is a private real estate investor and developer set up two years ago and which is headed up by Max James, the former chief executive of Quintain.


The scheme will include new homes, office space and retail
