Revealed: first images of PRP and Make's Olympic legacy housing

The AJ can reveal pictures of Make Architects, PRP Architects, Muf, Karakusevic Carson and NORD’s competition-winning scheme for the first phase of the Olympic Park’s redevelopment in London

The architects are part of the Taylor Wimpey and L&Q-led team which has been selected to design and build Chobham Manor – a new post-Games district on the Olympic Park which will include 870 homes.

The housing-led scheme, 75 per cent of which will be family homes, is the first of five new neighbourhoods on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Sat between the Althletes’ Village - which will be converted into 2,800 flats after the 2012 Games - and Hopkins’ Velodrome, the development will feature traditional family neighbourhoods with terraced and mews houses, set within tree-lined avenues.

David Montague, Chief Executive of L&Q, said: ‘This is a unique opportunity to create new high quality homes in a family-orientated community in the Olympic Park, over 75 per cent with three or more bedrooms.

‘Our plans for Chobham Manor will help to ensure that there is a strong legacy of quality housing for Stratford following the Games, which will include affordable homes available to local families to rent or buy. L&Q look forward to working closely with our partners the London Legacy Development Corporation and the Greater London Authority, to deliver these new homes.’

PRP and Make tipped for Olympic legacy housing victory

Make, PRP Architects, Muf and Karakusevic Carson are understood to have won the first phase of the Olympic Park’s redevelopment in London

Insiders say the Taylor Wimpey and L&Q-led team has been picked to design and build Chobham Manor – a new post-Games district on the Olympic Park which will include 800 homes.

The development between the Althetes’ Village and Hopkins’ Velodrome will feature traditional family neighbourhoods with terraced and mews houses, set within tree-lined avenues. In May, the AJ revealed Taylor Wimpey had teamed up with Muf and Karakusevic Carson on the bid and was also in discussions with NORD.

The developer bid was selected ahead of rival submissions by Barratt, which was working with Allies and Morrison, Maccreanor Lavington and Witherford Watson Mann, and East Thames and Countryside, which had teamed up with Feilden Clegg Bradley, Alison Brooks Architects and S333.

The first homes are expected to be ready in 2014.

Chobham Manor is part of a 100-hectare masterplan for the post games park drawn up by AECOM, Allies and Morrison, KCAP, Witherford Watson Mann, Maccreanor Lavington, Panter Hudspith, Caruso St John, VOGT and West 8.

Architects shortlisted for Olympic legacy housing revealed

Feilden Clegg Bradley, Make and Allies and Morrison are among eight architects on the three-strong developer shortlist bidding for the first phase of the Olympic Park’s redevelopment in London

The three developers shortlisted to build the park’s first neighbourhood – known as Chobham Manor – are: East Thames with Countryside Properties, Barratt Homes with Le Frak Organisation and Taylor Wimpey with London & Quadrant.

  • Allies and Morrison, Maccreanor Lavington and Witherford Watson Mann are teamed up with Barratt and Le Frak.
  • Make and PRP Architects are working with Taylor Wimpey and L&Q.
  • East Thames and Countryside’s design team meanwhile features Feilden Clegg Bradley, Alison Brooks Architects and S333.

Chobham manor is planned to feature traditional family neighbourhoods with terraced and mews houses, set within tree-lined avenues.

The 800-home district is located between the Althetes’ Village and Hopkins’ Velodrome. Family housing will make up 70 per cent of the residences and 30 per cent of homes will be affordable.  

The Olympic Park Legacy Company plans to appoint a development partner by summer 2012 and expects the first homes to be ready in 2014.

Chobham Manor is part of a 100-hectare masterplan for the post games park drawn up by AECOM, Allies and Morrison, KCAP, Witherford Watson Mann, Maccreanor Lavington, Panter Hudspith, Caruso St John, VOGT and West 8.

Olympic Park Legacy Company chief executive Andrew Altman said: ‘Chobham Manor will set the benchmark for quality design and sustainable living on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

‘The three shortlisted parties are all capable of delivering to the highest standards and creating a thriving family community. They reflect the strong market appetite to develop family housing in the area.

‘Legacy plans are more advanced than any previous Olympic host city and we aim to continue this by appointing a preferred bidder before the 2012 Games.’
