Developer Westfield has submitted a detailed masterplan and environmental strategy for Stratford City, the regeneration project that will form a key part of east London’s Olympic legacy.
The plans, which have been submitted to the Olympic Delivery Authority, envisage more than 5,300 homes, as well as 1.25 million ft2 of retail, leisure and office space and hotels and community facilities.
About 3,000 of the homes will be used for the Olympic village during the 2012 Games.
Westfield says the scheme will deliver “stringent sustainable development standards”.
John Burton, development director, said: “Work is under way. We are on site doing preparation work and infrastructure design is well advanced.”
