Architect's development in London's Isle of Dogs will feature 361 apartments, retail space and a public garden

Hamiltons Architects has unveiled this image of Indescon Court, a two-acre site in Isle of Dogs, south east London. The development includes 361 residential units with 1,200 sq m of retail and commercial units and a public garden.

The site originally received outline planning permission for a commercial/residential development with a McCormack Jamieson Pritchard designed-scheme, but the commercial half of the site was then redesigned by Metropolitan Workshop for residential use.

The site was then bought by Darryl Flay’s Oracle Homes in 2006 and Hamilton’s were brought on board to redesign the site once again.

The fourth side of the square will be enclosed by the second phase of the development, which Hamiltons’ is also working on.

Quantity surveyor on the scheme is Gardiner & Theobold, structural engineer is Scott Wilson and landscape architect is Fabrik. Work is expected to start on site in June 2007.
