LONDON | Various Opportunity Areas for Redevelopment


London has identified 37 Opportunity areas where large-scale regeneration can take place to accommodate housing needs and for future growth without destroying the historic fabric of the various conservation areas and sightlines. Unlike cities in North America such as Toronto or New York where most developments are done in their downtown cores, tourists in London who only visit the center are not exposed to the dizzying array of construction and redevelopment that is ongoing in the city,

Starting in Central London:

(19) King's Cross Central (video)(SSC)
This is still undergoing construction but the public realm around the site is top-notch

(21) London Bridge, Borough, and Bankside
Numerous schemes including Bankside Quarter and the redevelopment of London Bridge Station

(25) Paddington (video)(SSC)
This area behind Paddington Station has started being redeveloped before King's Cross, but still has a few remaining buildings in the pipeline, including the Paddington Cube.

(32) Vauxhall, Nine Elms, and Battersea (video)(SSC)
This is the largest regeneration area in Central London. Unlike Kings Cross Central, this is divided into different projects by different developers. The biggest project here is the Battersea Power Station redevelopment and its immediate surrounding area.

(33) Victoria (PDF)
Numerous small schemes within Victoria

Outside Central London:

(3) Canada Water (video)(SSC)
The retail park here is being redeveloped into a mixed-use community with commercial, residential, leisure, and retail

(13) Greenwich Pensinsula (video)(SSC)
This is another exciting mixed-used area that is being redeveloped near the O2 centre with Calatrava's Peninsula Place as the centerpiece

(17) Isle of Dogs
This includes the areas surrounding Canary Wharf, such as Wood Wharf, North Quay, South Quay, and Millharbour Village. Also nearby are the two Leamouth Peninsula developments.

(26) Old Oak and Park Royal (video)(SSC)
A massive opportunity area roughly the same size as downtown Vancouver, although only a small portion of it is being redeveloped as of the moment. It will have one of the best transport links within London.

(35) Wembley (video)(SSC)
A large well-connected site surrounding Wembley Stadium, this is being envisioned as a mixed-use area with offices, residential, retail, leisure, and entertainment venues.
