BDPs Second Stratford Block

Legacy is a much used word when it comes to Stratford in East London, and one that pops up again with this project for the Unite Group by BDP Design.

The project is the latest in a line of buildings offering a large amount of student accommodation for the developer, in this case some 750 bed-spaces. There will be ground floor retail to take advantage of the near-prime location the project has near Stratford Station and Westfield.

Tower Hamlets Defers Pride Decision

A planning application for what would be the tallest residential tower in the United Kingdom, the 75-floor City Pride, has failed to be approved by the planning committee of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.



The proposal raised a few eyebrows at its extreme height, at least for London, when it first surfaced with 75 floors an almost unprecedented number for a British skyscraper - only the Shard comes close.

The committee was most concerned about the height of the project, which a height that previously hosted a single pub, offered unparalleled housing density. There was also concern about the lack of public space, although with such a small site any attempt to fit open space into the scheme would always be a challenge although modifications to the second low-rise building could easily help accommodate increased outside space. Finally the committee were troubled by the lack of different types of housing tenures, that is the failure to offer a variety of different leases for the social housing on the lower floors.

As a result the committee has deferred their decision on the planning application for a month. This doesn't actually mean the scheme has been rejected but rather the developer, Chalegrove Properties, will be able to make minor amendments and flesh out their application further to address the issue the council has identified and negotiate further about planning gain to mitigate against the negative aspects.

Designed by Squire & Partners, it has been penned to fit in with the adjacent and already completed Landmark Towers, the tallest of which is 139.55 metres.

A planning precedent for a 200-metre plus building on the site already exists as previous developer Glenkerrin, who were caught by the Irish downturn, had Foster and Partners work up a tower that won planning permission back in 2009.

The won't reduce the height - they will come back offering a change of use of some of the facilities and it will be approved. Happens on so many schemes it's stupid. Waste of time.

i am not too confident to bet on this project's future result but as we all know that london has been experiencing a huge population boom. therefore, no doubt many more residential towers will be built across the city in order to accommodate more people and there are still tons of projects even if this one won't get built.

It will be approved. They can't afford to refuse it. London's population is soaring... They need houses.
