Athletes' Village cuts continue as Make tower is mothballed

Make’s 30-storey residential tower at the heart of the £2 billion London 2012 Olympics Athletes’ Village has been mothballed, the AJ can reveal.

Last week it emerged developer Lend Lease had scaled back the number of homes proposed to house the London 2012 Games’ 17,000 athletes from 4,200 to 3,300 (AJ online 03.07.08).

According to a source close to the Make project, the design team had been ‘aware the development was likely to stop’ for some time. However it is unclear whether a sister tower by Ian Simpson Architects has also been put on the back-burner.

Neither Lend Lease nor the Olympic Delivery Authority were available for comment.

Meanwhile it has emerged that Make’s Middlesex Hospital scheme for developer Candy & Candy has also been held up – but is expected to restart later in the year.
