AJ120 practice Stockwool has won planning for this £10 million canal-side housing scheme in Limehouse, East London


The 45-home scheme sits on a 0.14 hectare site on the edge of the Limehouse Cut conservation area.

The five and seven-storey building will be set back from the canal to provide landscaped open space.

The mixed-tenure scheme includes 14 affordable homes and will be arranged around a central courtyard with a children’s playground.

According to the practice, the scheme will ‘echo the heritage of canal-side warehouse architecture’ with textured red brick and pitched roofs. It will also feature concrete wall panels and steel balconies.

Gavin Redfern, partner at Stockwool, said: ‘The Limehouse Cut is London’s oldest canal and this site is one of the last infill sites which are redefining it as its focus turns from industrial to leisure.

‘We have been pleased to work with our clients on this scheme, which contributes to the unique sense of place in Limehouse and enhances access to the Limehouse Cut itself and the wider network of amenities along it.’

The development is expected to start on site in 2016 and is set to complete in summer 2017.
