SOM and BDP architects behind ambitious scheme at Leamouth Peninsula

Planning permission has been granted for this 1.9 m sq ft mixed use scheme by a consortium including architects SOM, BDP and landscape architect Martha Schwartz.

The Ballymore development is at Leamouth Peninsula, east London, opposite the Millennium Dome. The scheme will include around 1800 homes, a new pedestrian and cycle bridge linking to Canning Town, an arts centre and a community centre. Work is expected to start in 2007 and the first homes will be built in 2009.
