London City Island | Leamouth Peninsula | 10 towers, 44-80m | 14-26 fl | T/O

The planning application for Ballymore extensive Leamouth Peninsula development is online.

It contains towers up to , 23,24 & 26 storeys designed by SOM.

Theres drawings but no rendering so no idea on cladding etc.

Having a school in the 24-storey one is unusual.

Yes,..it must be on the lower few floors.

I always wondered why you dont get high rise schools.

I realise why now.....just imagine the bell going and 1000+ children needing to change floors in a 15 story buidling!

This development will feel quite cut off from the rest of the IOD's as it is literally a slip rd off the lower lea crossing and then hemmed in by the river lea. I think 3 towers in the 200ft range is reasonable for this site. Can't tell much from the drawings although I think they look pretty bog standard from what I can make out.

Meh. The drawings look like a 1960's point block

I agree that the size is about right though... Its a minute site

The Combined Outline and Full Planning Application (hybrid application) of Leamouth Peninsula North will go before the next Strategic Development Committee of LBTH. It is recommended that the application is refused. Architect is SOM.

Main reasons: inappropriate transport links, loss of employment floor space, excessive retail floor space, inappropriate mix of car/bicycle provisions, loss of daylight and sunlight, uninspiring environment that would not be easily legible and permeable, unbalanced mix of housing units (over provisions of flats and 1-bedroom), and unacceptable level of affordable housing, insufficient provision of open space.

Herebelow, an aerial of the site and a couple of renderings that have been submitted (part outline, part full details).

I can see why it got refused. It's rather bland (should feel right at home then).

Transport issues? What, being right next to a main road and a tube station? Very bizarre.

I'd like to a see the redesign. Could be a really cool place to live, surrounded by a river on both sides. They've started to demolish and clear the site of the current industrial factories the last time I went past on the DLR.

You can see my house in that arial picture.

I can see this development from my window. It's a dump what's currently there.

Well look at that picture and youll see that its quite hard to get to Canning Town station from that place.
They should build footbridge I think :

The scheme did include a footbridge to the tube station. From what I had seen of the plans I did not think there was too much retail. But I certainly think it had a very high proportion of 1 bedroom flats. They obviously don't like the mega structure approach, and probably thought the density of development is to high for their liking. I suspect the council would be quite happy if this was to remain in employment use. Idealy for the business being displaced by the residential development on the Isle of Dogs.

In fact, isn't it this bridge that they're building?

Theirs already a footbridge connecting this development to Canning Town station. I walk over it every other day. It's a pretty new bridge. Plus, the fact that this development looks over the Bow Creek natural preserve I can see this place becoming trendy in 7 years time. Especially with Canary Wharf a 10 min walk away and the Dome 5 mins away.

That's a bit further down the river connecting to Leamouth River South.

The Canning Town bridge is being designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
