Joint venture partners Lend Lease and London & Continental Railways have won planning permission for 330 new homes at The International Quarter in Stratford.
Work on the Glasshouse Gardens scheme, which consists of two tower building that will overlook the Olympic stadium, is now due to start next Summer.
Lend Lease has now won planning permission for more than 1,000 new homes in Central London during the last 12 months alone.
The homes will form part of The International Quarter, a joint venture between Lend Lease and LCR to deliver a £1.3bn commercial and residential development in Stratford.
Kristy Lansdown, Lend Lease’s Project Director, said: “We have worked closely with the London Borough of Newham and the London Legacy Development Corporation during the design process.”
The apartments will also showcase the latest in sustainable building practices and innovation.
Each apartment will be constructed with the aim of maximising natural light and fresh air.
The buildings will also feature green rooves for absorbing rainwater and providing insulation.
Lend Lease has already begun work on another major regeneration site in Central London at Elephant & Castle.
The £1.5bn regeneration will deliver 3,000 news homes and 160,000 sq ft of retail space as well as commercial and leisure space over the next 10 years.
Lend Lease also won planning permission earlier in the Autumn for two new sites at Battersea comprising 200 units at Cobalt Place and Victoria Drive respectively.
