Tower Hamlets Council votes through Bethnal Green apartment project

Tower Hamlets Council’s strategic development committee has voted in favour of a large private housing development at the Bethnal Green gasworks, home of the world’s second-oldest gasometer. The final two remaining wrought-iron frames at the site, which held 60ft and 120ft high Victorian storage tanks, will be dismantled, restored, and reassembled around circular residential tower blocks. In total, the project will see 550 homes created in five round towers modelled on the gasometer geometrics.
