Breathing life into Leaside

  • Comment

Patel Taylor and URS have produced a development strategy for east London's Leaside Arc. The aim is to kick-start regeneration by encouraging the development of highdensity mixed-use communities on a series of key sites. The study identifies a capacity for 20,000 new homes and 400,000m 2 of business, retail, leisure and industrial space.

Development is to be pragmatic, building on existing infrastructure and drawing its character from local historic context. By establishing guidelines on massing and building use, and identifying clearly defined plots for development, the plan is designed to encourage private piecemeal development that will eventually evolve into a coherent urban realm.

The study was commissioned by Leaside Regeneration and is currently being considered by councillors and the London Development Agency.
