New housing built on former factory site

Metropolitan Workshop has won approval for 115 affordable homes on a former industrial site in Poplar, east London.

The site is occupied by a 1939 factory building and a 1956 warehouse which were both last in use as a document storage facility.

Three new buildings and retained elements of the existing buildings will enclose a new communal yard space.

A new six-storey building will replace the former warehouse building and new four and five storey elements are set within the existing walls of the factory.

The saw-tooth profile of the factory is echoed in the new roof profile as a series of spines that successively step up from Balladier Walk and Barchester Street.
