Looks very nice for Stratford. Looks better than anything CW will get.

Why the limited info? And where did you get the render from?

Edit: Is that proposed for The Broadway?

Looks nice. Decent height. What's the betting it gets reduced in height by the local NIMBYs? I reckon they'll lop about 15 floors off, and we'll end up with a 90m stump.

Looks like Ontario tower has been squashed flat by a nasty giant.

I'm still trying to work out exactly where this is on the High Street, but from what I can gather by that river is it is between Icona and Stratford Gate.

Stock Woolstencoft seem to be very busy in this area, here are just the larger of the projects they have planned in the area. To my knowledge only Maxmoore house is currently being built, I have no idea about the status of the others.

160-188 High Street Stratford & Warton Road E15, 2005

A distinct marker development providing a mixture of commercial space and 275 residential units on this key corner site at the junction of High Street Stratford and Warton Road; an important corridor into Stratford town centre. The development also forms a 'gateway' route to the Olympic proposals for 2012 and re-defines the commercial frontage at street level making a significant contribution to the regeneration of the area.




14-26 High Street Stratford E15 2005–2008

Residential development with Toynbee HA comprising a mixture of affordable housing for rent, shared ownership and private units for sale.

The development is situated along the Bow Back River and High Street, Stratford and provides 301 dwellings and commercial units in a series of building and spaces that create a high quality, exiciting and comtempoary design.

The creation of a new focal area in the scheme in the shape of a new mixed use space "The River Square", connects the development to the public amenity of the Bow Back River and the emerging network of river/canalside walks.




Maxmoore House, Warton Road, Stratford, E15

The continued regeneration of Stratford has taken another huge step forward with the awarding of consent by Newham Council for a 249 unit, £50 million mixed use development in Warton Road; Telford Homes' joint venture with The Royal Bank of Scotland.
Stock Woolstencroft’s design proposes an 18 storey tower and two other 4 and 8 storey buildings, all overlooking a new linear park alongside the Waterworks tributary of the river Lea. This high-quality development incorporates an underground car park, landscaped courtyard and the ability to extend a new walkway through the site connecting the Carpenters estate to the river frontage.




New Mount Street, Stratford, London E15 2004–2005

As a high density mixed use development (935 Hrh) promoted by a Housing Association, Toynbee Housing Association, this scheme breaks new ground in providing high density mixed tenure housing, and is a demonstration project for the government agenda to maximise the reuse of brownfield land for high quality housing. The development features 300sqm of ground floor B1 space, a mixed residential scheme of 186 one, two and three bed units with below-ground parking and a private landscaped courtyard and roof gardens.

That's good. Can't be doing with NIMBYs on all our projects.

looks reasonable, would prefer more curves, but that's my prediliction - being a west London lad I'm not too good with my geography out east. Need to get the Jimbomobile out and about and have a nosy around the development sites.

Looks alright- better than the other high rise residential projects around here which to be honest aren't very inspiring. The area needs some well designed tall buildings to detract from the poorly designed ones. Hopefully this & the proposed 55storey Allies & Morrison tower will go someway to rectifying this.

This project has been completely rubbished by CABE.

http://www.cabe.org.uk/default.aspx?...39&refid=0&sl=

But this is what it looked like.

CABE always seem to moan about the wrong buildings, never quite sure where they're coming from sometimes. Shame, I like the look of this design. Never mind...

The tower doesn't set a high enough standard under the CABE/English Heritage Guidance on tall buildings and is possibly too tall for the area (doesn't sound promising for the Sugar House tower then), the massing of the lower rise buildings is too overbearing, the interior corridors are too long, the family units have no access to private amenity space, including the ones in the tower (no balconies), the service yard doubles is advertised as a public space (unacceptable), there is a distinct lack of boundary between the private and public space and the scheme has a complete lack of sustainability and environmental credentials.

the tower is too tall for the area because there are no towers of height in that area. so what too i f there's a lack of boundary between public and private space in the scheme, imagine if we had schemes that were properly open at ground level. ive read the planning application, not sure how they can say it has a complete lack of sustainability and environmental credentials. the integration with the riverbank is brilliant.

Well thanks for bumping this, but we've already been discusssing this in the other Stratford thread.
