Driscoll House.Southwark.Planning Approved.

The Grade II listed Driscoll House is located on New Kent Road, close to Elephant & Castle. The scheme aims to convert the building into 61 distinctive residential apartments by adding a roof top penthouse and by enclosing the existing U shaped courtyard with a glass roof. This creates an atrium which solves the access problems of the existing building.
Floating between the two brickwork wings of Driscoll House is a brass clad box, housing 10 unique open plan apartments. To the front of the box, vertical glass fins are positioned to control views into and out from the apartments. Coloured glass fins connect the individual balcony spaces and form each balcony enclosure.

Beetham approved, that's news. So what does this mean with Westminster City Council/English Heritage/Unesco? Wasn't it supposed to be called in for inquiry?

It means there are 14 days from today, during which the tower can be called-in for a public inquiry. If nothing happens between now and then, the project has cleared the final hurdle and there's nothing to stop it going ahead.

Yep. And it will 100% go ahead if it clears this hurdle, as Jumeirah are already signed up

Two new apartment towers are now under construction, the first is OneStratford and is located just next to Pudding Mill Lane and the Bow Flyover.

The second I have no idea what it is called but it's on Payne Road in Bow, on the corner of the Bow Flyover and A12.

Stratford Gate has started construction, and the low rise portion is nearing the beginning of being clad, the core of the tower is up to the third floor. This is a tiny rendering of the new scheme, which is on Stratford High Street/Warton Road (slighty south of Icona)



There have been a couple of new renderings released for the new set of proposals:

150 Stratford High Street
The proposed development comprises seven-mixed use mixed tenure buildings surrounding two landscaped communal courtyard spaces. The development forms a fundamental part of the regeneration of Stratford High Street at a strategically important landmark site in the immediate vicinity of the Olympic masterplan site placed at one of the main pedestrian entrances whilst also located at one of the main approaches to the new Stratford City development. The scheme proposes six new buildings between three and 45 storeys together with the restoration and extension of an existing building to provide 300sqm of community, 435sqm commercial space, a 143 bedroom hotel, 220sqm PCT clinic and 690 residential. The proposed development also offers a range of significant planning and regeneration benefits in terms of employment, residential opportunities, architectural quality, the delivery of significant public realm improvements, and will create a distinct identity for this important site in the London Borough of Newham.

The scheme has been carefully designed in accordance with the principles of sustainable design and construction. Through the use of a combined heat and power plant and biomass fuel, the majors target for renewable energy will be met and the policy target for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions will be exceeded.







The site in 2004 (before Icona started construction)

Bow Bridge Wharf
The scheme proposals comprise 120 residential units including shared ownership, market sale, rented and intermediate rented tenures. We also include 950 sqm of commercial space, 28 car parking spaces (including 2 car sharing spaces), another 2 car share spaces off-site, cycle parking for 120 cycles, and associated landscaping and amenity space.



This is on the southern side of the Bow Flyover on the opposite side to Stratford High Street to OneStratford, creating a two tower gateway to Stratford and the Olympic Boulevard.

And then of course there's Sugar House:



Which has its own dedicated thread.

What's pretty amazing is how fast the pace of change this area is undergoing - with the Olympic Park site now cordoned off to the public, and these towers sprouting up, this whole area is going to be unrecognisable in five years time.
