KEN YEANG GETS DOWN TO WORK IN KENT

NEWS IN PICTURES

Llewelyn Davies Yeang has revealed this masterplan project for Chatham in north Kent - one of Malaysian superstar Ken Yeang's first schemes since he joined the London practice last year. The Terry Farrell-backed scheme will see the construction of a mixed-use development on the 7ha site that will be 'framed' by a pair of 20-storey towers. The project - which will link to sites being masterplanned by Maccreanor Lavington and Urban Initiatives - will stretch from the River Medway to Chatham's Pentagon shopping centre. It will also take in a series of eight-storey buildings, which will include a theatre, arts and entertainment venues, shops, restaurants, bars, a community centre and conference facilities. Yeang said: 'The aim is to create a sensuous and enjoyable place where people will want to spend a whole day; somewhere that's lively seven days a week and 24 hours a day. The towers announce the waterfront and the city centre. The low-rise buildings are created around a series of sweeping curved walkways that link Chatham Waterfront to the High Street and the other key regeneration sites.'
