LONDON | Sugar House Tower | 159m | 40 fl | Pro

Sugar House Tower
Stratford, East London



This will stand close to the 2012 Olympic Stadium.

Sugar House Island lies in a triangle bounded by Stratford High Street, Three Mills Wall River
and the River Lea. In co-operation with the London Development Agency, the acquisition of a
large part of this area has given a major opportunity to urbanise a derelict industrial landscape
by providing a vibrant high quality mixed community of 2,500 new homes and creative media
uses sitting between Stratford and the City of London. The regeneration focus will be around the
water and its use for leisure, movement, education, waste management, recycling and energy
supply through CHP and renewables.

The Sugar House Phase One group of four buildings will provide East London with a significant
landmark overlooking the 2012 London Olympic site. The striking form of the main tower
responds not only to the need to create an identity building on the gateway to the wider Sugar
House site, but also to the daylight and sunlight requirements of the existing adjacent residential
buildings.

The reinforced concrete frame of the tower has been designed to have column free floor plates
to the accommodation areas to allow for fl exible planning or for possible future use as an
apartHotel. Building stability is achieved by the provision of concrete shear walls in the cores
and other locations.

The Phase One proposal is a mixed development providing commercial and high density residential
space. The employment use is located at ground level masking an internal car park that also houses a
large number of secure bicycle storage facilities. Landscaped amenity space is provided within a
semi-enclosed courtyard area, with links to the riverside walk on the site’s eastern boundary,
thence to the large public park across the river.

The development provides 35% affordable homes, and delivers a range of unit sizes of one to four
bedrooms, available to both the private and affordable markets. The architectural treatment of the
external envelope and the open space available to all residents makes no distinction between the private
and affordable elements. A high quality palette of materials is proposed that will provide a contrast
between the elevations onto the busy High Street and those to the lower levels facing the courtyard and
Three Mills Wall River.

It looks ok. The final product will depend a lot on the context. It looks like 122 Leadenhall, though, doesn't it?

Definitely reminiscent of Leadenhall, and even somewhat Shardish with the crown. Great in its own right, if not complementary to the others as well. Love that name Sugar House Tower. And we won't have to wait the prerequisite seven years to see it...j/k London.

It does look like Leadenhall in that it's a triangle, but apart from that it looks very different, especially the diagonal face. It's a nice building, but not stand out.

I can see virtually all countries building some triangular wedge type skyscraper at some point.

This project is likely to be blocked by the new mayor.

yeah, i think i like it, slightly outta place but nevermind
I'm not sure about that Will actually,
i've just read off of Skyscrapernews that, and i quote:

"Height: 158m (518ft) and 44 storeys.
Location: Off Stratford High Street, next to River Lea, E15.
Status: No planning application submitted yet.
Boris effect: A key decision for the Mayor as this is clearly a suburban location and the tower is extremely prominent. However, if there is no local opposition, he is likely to let it happen"

However the economic climate might just about kill it off

This looks cool, I hope that it will be built. It would be great if it was done in time for the olympics.

IKEA Buy Sugar House Site In Stratford

Published on 12-07-2010 by Skyscrapernews.com

Following their attempted foray into residential development in Hillingdon, north London, Swedish furniture store IKEA is now trying again, this time in Stratford.

IKEA has purchased the Sugar House Lane site that previously saw a proposal designed by Levitt Bernstein designed for it that if approved would have been 158.8 metres tall. With 830 square metres of commercial space and 410 residential units planned for the 13-acre site, this gives a vague idea of the scale of the development that IKEA could embark on although ambitious figures of up to 1,500 apartments have been mooted.

IKEA had previously tried to enter the residential market with a 19-floor building opposite Hillingdon underground station that would have also had a store next door and displayed the corporate branding of the firm. Other firms including Tesco have also been looking at developing property arms to take advantage of the demand for apartments in the capital.

They will be hoping for more luck this time as Stratford hits critical mass with a huge array of developments both inside and outside the 2012 Olympic zone underway with the tallest, the 133 metre tall 150 High Street having recently restarted after a period on hold.
