London Legacy Development Corporation lodges plans for cultural instititions and 600 homes

The London Legacy Development Corporation has submitted a planning application for Stratford Waterfront, as part of its £1.1bn plans for the East Bank regeneration at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Stratford Waterfront, which has been masterplanned by Allies & Morrison, will be home to the V&A, Sadler’s Wells, UAL’s London College of Fashion and the BBC, as well as a new residential neighbourhood.

Rosanna Lawes, executive director of development at the LLDC, said: “This announcement takes us another step closer to realising one of the most ambitious and largest culture and education investments the capital has ever seen, creating thousands of jobs and huge opportunities in the heart of east London.”

According to the masterplan architects, Stratford Waterfront is a new neighbourhood that will enable some of the world’s leading cultural and educational institutions to reach out into the London boroughs that hosted the Olympic Games. This important legacy investment will be the largest cultural investment in London since the Festival of Britain and the Southbank.

It will also add a significant number of new homes, retail space, a high-quality public realm and additional cultural/community spaces that extend the Park’s reach while inviting residents and visitors alike to participate in an exciting cross-pollination of culture, education and research. The project aspires to achieve this through accessible and porous architecture that is welcoming to people of all walks of life.

Rosanna Lawes, executive director of regeneration at the London Legacy Development Corporation, said: “Stratford and east London are changing fast. In a few short years we will see not only a new cultural and education district in east London with some of the world’s leading institutions sitting in the heart of the Park, but new neighbourhoods and business districts and hugely successful sporting venues delivering on the legacy promises made for the 2012 Games. This is the perfect illustration of how London is open, and will remain so.”
