The plan to build 1,600 homes in east London begins planning | News

Plans drawn up by a team of architects including Levitt Bernstein and Morris & Company for 1,600 homes on a plot in Poplar in east London have been sent to Tower Hamlets Council.

A joint venture between Malaysian developer EcoWorld London, which is also partly owned by Willmott Dixon, and the housing association Poplar Harca, is behind the proposal, which also offers design by LDA Design and ZCD Architects.

The master plan, which is the latest phase of the broader Aberfeldy Village regeneration plan, includes up to 25,500 m2 of new retail and nearly 30,000 m2 of new offices.

It also has a public park and a new town square at the end of Poplar’s Aberfeldy Street.

A new walking and cycling route is also planned, which will go under the A12, which crosses Poplar and Newham.

The original Aberfeldy Village Master Plan was given an outline plan in 2012.

Stages 1, 2 and 3a have been completed with phase 3b, which must be completed within the next year, when the scheme will have built 901 homes as well as a public park and town hall.
