A new neighbourhood in Silvertown, has been given the go-ahead by the Greater London Authority. Jules Pipe, London’s deputy mayor for planning, has given permission for Thameside West, a 5m sq ft residential-led, mixed-use development brought forward by Keystone London and GLA Land & Property, comprising 5,000 new homes, 205,000 sq ft of office space, and 75,400 sq ft of retail and leisure space. A master plan by Foster + Partners also includes 5.7 acres of public open space, including a new 4-acre riverside park, a new DLR station, a primary school, nursery, and other community facilities. The decision means that Keystone and GLAP can start on the development’s first phase, designed by John McAslan & Partners, comprising 401 mixed-tenure homes and 35,000 sq ft of workspace.
