Plans for East Wick & Sweetwater new neighbourhoods, located on the western edge of the Olympic Park in London, were recently approved and construction will commence in the spring 2017.
Masterplan of the large residential-led development was designed by Sheppard Robson alongside Studio Egret West. It comprises a total of 1500 high architectural quality homes including 555 affordable homes plus 10,000m² of office space and 7,200m² of retail. The development will be constructed in phases over the next eight years.
Phase 1 will provide a vibrant urban environment with 300 new homes and over 3,000m2 of nursery, retail and employment interconnected to a series of public spaces offering easy access to the Park’s sport facilities, the newly opened Mossbourne Riverside Academy, and the River Lee Navigation canal.
A brilliant team of winning architectural practices including Studio Egret West (2 plots) A-Studio and Piercy & Company was assembled to ensure the delivery of the highest standards of design and sustainability of Phase 1. Fabrik was appointed for the landscape design across all the phases.
