Ballymore has submitted a planning application for its latest major mixed-use quarter on the riverfront in London’s Royal Docks.

Redevlopment of the 6.1-ha UNEX-Thames Road Industrial Estate site will see construction of 1,610 new homes, including three-storey townhouses, lower blocks of six-to-nine storeys and taller blocks of between 15-to-18 storeys.

Alongside the new homes will be light industrial and commercial space and a two-form entry primary school. The proposal also features a major new public park along the river and community leisure facilities, such as a gym, outdoor pool, tennis court, rooftop running track and café.

If approved, construction of the masterplan designed by Glenn Howells Architects and HAL architects will start in 2023, with the site anticipated to complete 2027.

The site is currently occupied by several industrial warehouses, a concrete batching plant and a scrap yard. It was identified as suitable for mixed-use development in the Newham Local Plan 2018.

John Mulryan, Group Managing Director at Ballymore, said: “We look forward to continuing the regeneration story of this area of London as we have been able to define much of Newham’s riverfront through our Royal Wharf and Riverscape developments.

“As well as providing much-needed new homes for London, our vision is to create an area that excites and inspires, opening up the riverfront for everyone and forming a vibrant, dynamic and amenity-rich new neighbourhood.”
