Green light for Allies & Morrison’s Stratford Waterfront plans

The proposed East Bank section of Stratford Waterfront, masterplanned by Allies & Morrison

East Bank culture hub gets detailed consent while housing towers receive outline approval

Allies & Morrison’s masterplan for the cultural- and residential-led regeneration of Stratford Waterfront have won the backing of planners at the London Legacy Development Corporation.

The practice’s proposals for 4.5ha chunk of OIympic Park north-west of the London Aquatics Centre, designed by Zaha Hadid, include a BBC studio complex and a fashion hub for University of the Arts London.

Also part of the masterplan for the “East Bank” district are new bases for Sadler’s Wells and the Victoria & Albert Museum, designed by O’Donnell & Tuomey, and a new bridge linking the area with Stratford’s International Quarter designed by Spain’s Camps Felip Arquitecturia.
