The Mayor of Tower Hamlets is seeking the “world’s best architectural practices” to deliver a regeneration plan for Whitechapel.
The masterplan should enable the construction of affordable homes, business growth and new jobs for the local community.
In a statement the council said: “In 2018 Whitechapel will be a major transport interchange when the Crossrail line opens, making it one of the best connected hubs in London.
“The area enjoys close proximity to the City of London and Canary Wharf as well as an Olympic legacy and will have direct links to regional centres and international destinations at City Airport, Heathrow and Stratford International.”
The deadline for expressions of interest to bid is noon on November 13, 2012.
The contract is due to start in January with a value of up to £150,000.
