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.
