Stratford Waterfront scheme is by Allies & Morrison, O’Donnell & Tuomey and Arquitecturia

New images of the development at Stratford Waterfront by Allies & Morrison, O’Donnell & Tuomey and YAYA winner Arquitecturia have been released today.

The images show detailed designs for new spaces for the V&A, the London College of Fashion and Sadler’s Wells.

The proposals will be developed during the rest of the year with a detailed planning application scheduled for submission in December. Building work on Stratford Waterfront is due to start in 2018 with the site due to open in 2020/21.

The scheme is a key part of the regeneration of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The cultural and education district will also include a new campus for UCL on a separate site to the south of the Orbit. The first phase is expected to have up to 3,000 students and 625 staff, including academics and researchers.

Rosanna Lawes, executive director of regeneration at the London Legacy Development Corporation, said: “Stratford and east London are changing fast. In a few short years we will see not only a new cultural and education district in east London with some of the world’s leading institutions sitting in the heart of the Park, but new neighbourhoods and business districts and hugely successful sporting venues delivering on the legacy promises made for the 2012 Games. This is the perfect illustration of how London is open, and will remain so.”
