More than 1,500 homes set for east London scheme

Swan Housing Association has won planning for the 315-home third phase of its £500m Blackwall Reach development.

The scheme forms part of the wider 1,575-home regeneration of the area around the Blackwell Reach Dockland Light Railway station, which Swan is building in partnership with Tower Hamlets council and the Greater London Authority.

Phase three, designed by architect CF Møller, also includes delivery of a raft of public realm improvements around the station, including the planting of more than 200 trees as part of almost three acres of green space.
