2012 Olympics Athletes' Village masterplan unveiled

Lend Lease and partners First Base and East Thames have unveiled their masterplan for the £2 billion Athletes' Village at Stratford City.

The masterplan, drawn up by Fletcher Priest and Arup Urban Design, will become one the key legacies of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The massive scheme, on which 47 architectural practices will work, will be home to more than 17,000 athletes and officials during the Games. After the extravaganza the village will be converted into a new residential community of 3,800 homes.

The scheme will also include an education campus, new transport links, community and healthcare facilities, and 10 ha of parks and open spaces. A series of cascading ponds will run through the heart of the scheme.

Events in connection with the development will be held between 6.00pm and 8.00pm on Wednesday 26 September (at Carpenters TMO, Doran Walk, Stratford) and Tuesday 2 October (Chandos Community Centre, Colegrave Road, Stratford).

Lend Lease Europe Chairman, Nigel Hugill, said he was determined to 'create something amazing'.

He added: 'We really want everyone that can to take the time to share their views on our proposals. Our commitment, in return, is to do everything we can to ensure these play a role in delivering a special place which fulfils the aspirations of local people.'
