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.
