Mace and architect Gensler helped to draw-up designs for the London River Park, which is scheduled for a fast-track completion in time for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations and Olympics next year.
Developer London River Park, led by Singapore based investor Venus Group, submitted detailed plans to the City of London Corporation.
The 1km long walkway will provide a 12m wide floating pontoon to run parallel to the existing disjointed pathways and streets that currently connect the north bank of the river.
The 420m western section of the park will start to the east of Blackfriars Bridge and terminate just after Southwark Bridge.
The next 540m eastern section will start to the east of Cannon Street Rail Bridge and run east of Customs House by Tower Bridge. This part of the project will include a swimming pool and docking station for Thames passenger services.
Along this route eight themed pavilions will be built to showcase London and for hosting events beside the Thames.
Head of property and construction at Venus Group, John Naylor, said: “This is a very exciting moment for the team and we are proud to have submitted plans for the floating London River Park.
“These plans have been shaped by the expertise of many expert and experienced hands, as well as the people of London.
he added: “With the backing of the City of London and Greater London Assembly, we can make the floating river park a reality in time for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations next year.”
