Masterplan should include affordable homes

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.

  • The "world's best Architects" : surely an oxymoron or two ? What a tragic piece of ignorance from a minor political figure. Most of what is good about Whitechapel existed long before the "Golden age of Artistic Gentleman Architects". (aka GAGA !). As for the pile of crap on the one way system island : anyone prepared to own up to designing that ? What makes this fool think that a world class Architect will improve matters in Whitechapel : pompous and self important gibberish !!
