Plans for 300 new homes in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park designed by Studio Egret West, Piercy & Company and Astudio have been given the green light
Approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), the 300-home scheme marks the first phase of wider proposals to create two neighbourhoods, East Wick and Sweetwater, on the east London park.
Studio Egret West and Sheppard Robson are masterplanning the overall scheme for 1,500 homes, which also includes 10,000m² of office space, 7,200m² of retail as well as buildings by Stirling Prize-winning Alison Brooks Architects and ShedKM.
Backed by Places for People and Balfour Beatty Investments, the first-stage development also includes a ‘neighbourhood centre’ retail and office space.
The development will sit to the east of Hawkins\Brown’s £100 million Here East overhaul of the former Olympic media complex and south of Make’s Copper Box indoor sports arena.
