Planning permission to Silvertown Quays

  • Comment

Speaking at MIPIM, London mayor Ken Livingstone yesterday (9 March) announced that the London Borough of Newham has resolved to grant outline planning permission to the massive Silvertown Quays masterplan by Urban Strategies International. The 24ha site - which is a key part of the Thames Gateway - includes proposals for an aquarium (pictured) designed by Terry Farrell & Partners, which also created The Deep in Hull. The project, adjacent to the Royal Victoria Docks in east London, is the largest scheme to win planning approval in the designated Thames Gateway area and links London City Airport to other residential and leisure facilities. The masterplan includes proposals for a 494,000m 2 mixeduse waterfront scheme, including 4,930 residential units. The aquarium is due to open in 2008.
