John McAslan working on first phase of Thameside West mixed-use scheme

The £3bn redevelopment of a riverside site in east London have been sent in to planners.

The Thameside West scheme in Newham, which will run along a 16ha strip of land in Silvertown next to the Royal Docks, has been masterplanned by Foster & Partners.

The first phase of the scheme has been drawn up by John McAslan & Partners and will include 460 mixed-tenure homes and 35,000sq ft of workspace on the site of a former Carlsberg Brewery.

The wider scheme, which is for developers Keystone London and GLA Land & Property, will include 5,000 mixed-tenure homes, 200,000sq ft of industrial and workspace along with 75,000sq ft of shops, restaurants and bars.

In addition, the masterplan includes a new primary school, a new 1km riverside walkway, two new riverside parks and a new DLR station on the site.

Keystone is a private real estate investor and developer set up two years ago. It is headed up by Max James, former chief executive of Quintain.


The scheme will include new homes, office space and retail
