First detailed plans for Robin Hood Gardens overhaul submitted
The first phase of the massive Blackwall Reach development in East London, which will eventually see the Smithsons’ 1970s Robin Hood Gardens flattened, has been submitted for planning
Designed by Aedas, the scheme features 98 new homes, a replacement mosque, a community centre and housing office for project backer the Swan Housing Group.
The application known as ‘Phase 1a’ of the £500 million Blackwall Reach Regeneration Project, covers land at the north west of the site, north of Woolmore Street, between Robin Hood Lane and Cotton Street and the north east of Bullivant Street.
The wider 1,600-home redevelopment, which was masterplanned by Horden Cherry Lee and Aedas was given outline approval by the Greater London Authority (GLA) back in March (see AJ 27.03.2012).
