Maccreanor Lavington tower gets the go-ahead

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Maccreanor Lavington has won planning for this 14-storey tower in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets

The 2008 Stirling Prize-winning practice’s scheme for Tower Hamlets will provide 62 new homes in one, two and three-bedroom apartments with commercial space at the ground floor.

It will also include a garden at roof level and a courtyard and children’s playground to the rear.  

At 14-storeys at its tallest point, the building steps down on either side to integrate with the street level and to avoid ‘overpowering’ the surrounding buildings.

The building features a brick façade which has been influenced by the ‘heritage of the old warehouses formerly located in the area’.

The scheme will start on site in September 2015 and is due to complete in 2017.
