SOM has released this image after gaining planning permission for a major mixed-use redevelopment on the Isle of Dogs.
The redevelopment of the former London Arena site at Crossharbour will include nearly a thousand new homes.
After taking into account the concerns of London mayor Ken Livingstone and local residents regarding height and massing, the final proposals are radically scaled back from what was originally put together in 2002 for the 2ha site.
The scheme, granted planning permission on 8 September, will also include a hotel, a 26,500m 2
office building, plus retail, leisure and community space.
It will consist of eight buildings in total, including a landmark 43-storey tower fronting Millwall Inner Dock.
Ballymore Properties was advised by GVA Grimley on the scheme.by Rob Sharp
