Developed by the English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General Property and the Homes and Communities Agency – it marks the final phase of the £180m flagship development for the East London council.
Architect Project Orange has designed the new residential blocks to stand out in their own right by using a combination of high quality brick and aluminium panels with carefully placed balconies.
Once complete, Rathbone Market’s regeneration will have transformed a rundown post-war housing and market site, delivered 652 new private and affordable homes and provided a new and improved permanent square for the historic market.
Duncan Cumberland, development director for ECf, said: “The third phase will round up what is one of the most exciting and innovative developments in London, breathing new life into a once unloved part of the city.”
The tallest block will stand at 14-storeys and the lowest six. It will comprise one, two, and three-bedroom properties formed in a horse-shoe configuration around a verdant communal garden.
Cumberland said: “This phase represents the next piece in the jigsaw for Rathbone Market and will put Canning Town firmly back on the map as a residential destination in East London.”
