Stanton Williams and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands schemes set for approval

Detailed designs for the first phase of University College London’s huge new campus in east London are set to be approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation.

Papers published ahead of the next meeting of the LLDC’s planning committee, scheduled for March 26, recommend consent be granted to the campus’ two lynchpin blocks, designed by Stanton Williams and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.

The Stanton Williams block, earmarked for a plot near Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond’s ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture, will deliver 34,680sq m of new academic space and 320sq m of retail space in a new part 10-, part 11-storey structure.
