Tower Hamlets council puts out tender for architect

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets is seeking a masterplanner to draw up a revamp plan for the Whitechapel area of east London.

Whitechapel is known for its busy street market and for being one of the most multicultural areas of London.

Transport links to the area have improved in recent years with the completion of the revamp of the East London Line and are set to be improved further by the completion of Crossrail in 2018.

The council said in its tender: “Whitechapel is an exciting opportunity waiting to happen. It is an opportunity for the business community, landowners, developers and our local residents to see that Whitechapel will be better connected, better located and have better facilities than any other comparable area in East London.”

The deadline for expressions of interest to bid is noon on November 13, 2012.
