Mixed-use scheme will include nearly 350 homes

U+I Equipment Works Blackhorse Road

Regeneration specialist U+I has won planning permission for a £130m mixed-use scheme on Blackhorse Road in Walthamstow, north-east London.

In partnership with landowners Parkdale Investments, U+I will transform the site - currently occupied by several warehouses - into 337 new homes, of which just under a quarter will be affordable, and 18,830 sq ft of commercial space designed by DLA Architects.

Close to Blackhorse Road station, the site known as Equipment Works is within Waltham Forest’s Blackhorse Lane Area Action Plan which is aiming to deliver over 2,500 new homes in the next 10 years. The site is expected to have been vacated by current tenants by the end of next February.
