Flyer with (minor) update: http://canadawatermasterplan.com/wp-...t-Oct-2015.pdf

Draft masterplan still in the works, expected for comment early in new year; in the meantime some 'topic discussions' coming up.

A little less consultation, a little more action, please.

Roger Madelin, who led the King's Cross regeneration for Argent, has defected to BL to lead on Canada Water:

http://www.theconstructionindex.co.u...a-water-scheme

Quote:

British Land has appointed Roger Madelin to lead the development of its 46-acre Canada Water site in southeast London.

Roger Madelin will join the company in February 2016 and gets a seat on British Land's executive committee.

He has been at rival developer Argent since 1987 and was chief executive from 1997 to 2012. He led on Argent’s 67-acre King's Cross development. Since the end of 2012, when Argent restructured as a limited liability partnership, he has been one of nine partners but with a reduced part-time role.

British Land has spent five years assembling the Canada Water site. It includes Surrey Quays Shopping Centre and Harmsworth Quays, the former Daily Mail General Trust printing works. Last piece in the jigsaw was its acquisition of Surrey Quays Leisure Park in March this year. The combined sites have potential for around 5.5 million sq ft of office, retail, residential, leisure, educational and community space.

British Land is currently working with the London Borough of Southwark and local communities to deliver the Canada Water Masterplan and expects to submit a planning application by the end of next year.

British Land chief executive Chris Grigg said: "Development is a core part of our business: we are very focused on areas of London which will benefit from growth and regeneration. Canada Water provides an exceptional and exciting opportunity to create a mixed-use scheme with office, retail, residential, leisure and community space. Roger Madelin is a highly experienced developer and brings enormous experience of delivering major mixed-use developments. Placemaking lies at the heart of what we do and I look forward to working with Roger to create a vibrant new destination for London that caters for a wide range of modern needs."

Roger Madelin said: "The combination of the physical opportunity at Canada Water, working with British Land and with the thoughtful and ambitious London Borough of Southwark was an opportunity too exciting to turn down. I have had an amazing 29 years at Argent and thank all my colleagues for the trust and support they have given me. The completion of the last phases of King's Cross are in talented and safe hands. For new projects Argent and its new partner Related has an exciting future and I wish them all well."
Also reported in the FT, which unfortunately calls it the "Canary Wharf Masterplan", but also says BL intends to submit full application in 2016 and start construction in 2017.

So I'd guesstimate the tallest is about 165m based on the height of the proposed tower from the Shard's developer here.

This scale of development further strengthens the need for a river crossing between Rotherhithe and Canary Wharf.

Building a bridge between Rotherhite and Canary Wharf would also reduce the strain on Jubilee Line. To have passengers board at Canada Water and then alight at Canary Wharf is incredible waste of resources.

It's quite a long walk on either side, though. Probably 15 minutes to the river, and then you end up in Westferry which is a good 10+ minutes from most peoples' offices. I'm not doing that in the rain !

With a crossing would enable people to make more direct journeys moreso allow more journeys by bike.

The little exclave at Roberts Close, part of the Masterplan area, is being cleared (of bushes, rubbish, grass, etc) for some reason - perhaps a temporary use on the way.

The Printworks is currently got up as an air force base for the Secret Cinema crowd - fun to see people coming out of the tube at weekends in period costume, etc. And Hawker House is still going strong in the old What retail shed, pulling in huge crowds. But I wish they'd knock the damn things down and get on with it.

Unfortunately I suspect its also a nice little earner for TfL. With that said over the last year Canada Water station has become increasingly unbearable at rush-hour. I have lived in the area and used the station since 2009 but over the last 12 months the overcrowding has become very noticeable.

But those who enter at Canada Water and Alight at Canary Wharf is a waste of resources. Factor in boarding and alighting times at each end and the connection at end and a new bridge would reduce to an extent on the jubilee line.

Put two and two together, Dibble - the Roberts Close site is right behind the London House one on Quebec Way, so has probably been cleared for use as site offices and construction storage etc.

Turns out the website has the plan - half to be storage for Quebec Quarter, half to be temporary use.

Robert’s Close update from British Land

Some of you may have noticed clearing and activity on the site known as Robert’s Close (next to Alfred Salter), part of the Canada Water Masterplan. This is the first step in bringing half of the site into community use for around two years– something we’re very excited about! This site will be used on a temporary or “meanwhile” basis for community activity and benefit, while the plans for the future development of the site are being established.

So what’s happening at the moment?
As you may know, we’ve been looking to bring this site into use for some time. The site itself has never been used. It was bought by the Daily Mail Group when they were still working in Harmsworth Quays for an extra car park, which was never needed. The ground is made up of material from the filling in of the docks, with an uneven and overgrown surface, which would be quite difficult and potentially unsafe to bring into wider community use as it stands.

Therefore we’ve recently agreed with the neighbours of the site Quadrant Construction for them to undertake works to the site, in exchange for using half for temporary storage, relating to the Quebec Quarter development next door. This will leave the half closest to Stave Hill for a community meanwhile use, and the half closest to Quebec Way for storage for 12 months.

What happens next?
We are now speaking to a number of organisations who specialise in working with the local community to bring sites into use on a temporary basis, and look to appoint in the Spring. This organisation would work with all locally to develop an exciting meanwhile use of the space. It won’t be straightforward, as the site has no services such as electricity or water, and it’s likely that we’ll start small to begin with. However, with the interest shown so far by the community, we’re excited about what we can come up with together for the space over the coming year.
