Plot N06, located at the South West of East Village (between N07 - Tayberry House & Kotata House - and the Waterglades) is a future residential development by Get Living London. This thread is intended to give an overview of the plans and will be updated as the development progresses.
The buildings on the N06 site were given outline planning permission as part of the Stratford City Masterplan, originally granted in 2005 and modified in 2007 and 2012. In 2014 the detailed design was submitted to the London Legacy Development Corporation and approved. The scheme was designed by architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, RIBA London Architect of the Year 2015, who are also responsible for the design of N02, N14 and the other new buildings planned in East Village.
The development will be formed of 4 buildings: two towers of 24 and 29 storeys, and two podium buildings - a “mini tower” of 10 storeys, on the corner of Glade Walk and Ravens Walk, and a 7 storey curved building facing towards Olympic Park Avenue bridge. The Podium buildings will be faced with white brick, while the towers will be faced with stone cladding with copper coloured metal panels. Canopies around the base of each tower are designed to lessen the effect of the wind caused by the exposed site facing the park.
The buildings will consist entirely of residential accommodation, intended to be marketed on Get Living London’s rental model.
In total there will be 456 apartments (39 studios, 217 1 beds, 169 2 beds, 23 3 beds and 8 4 beds). Apartments on the lower levels of the towers will offer balconies, while higher level flats will feature internal winter garden space.
The basement floors of the building, accessed from Anthems Way, will provide a loading bay and parking for 509 bicycles as well as car parking.
A number of changes to the surrounding landscape will be made to accommodate the new buildings:
- Ravens Walk will remain at its current width, but will be landscaped with additional trees, a play area and a set of landscaped steps up to the N06 courtyard.
- Glade Walk, on the South side of the Portlands, will be diverted away from the new building, allowing the creation of more green space.
- A new landscaped area will be planted between the building and Olympic Park Avenue.
- The plot will feature a landscaped courtyard and a roof garden on top of one of the podium buildings.
- Test piling began on the site in April 2015
- Construction is due to begin in late 2015 and is predicted to take 2.5 years.
More detail on the building, including plans, daylight and wind analysis can be found in the planning application on the LLDC website.
