Blackwall Yard development
« on: June 29, 2020, 08:32:49 PM »
Work will start soon on Blackwall Yard, the development on the Reuters car park.
The boards have gone up and the first work will be to demolish the small building on the site.
Then in the next week or two, the latest plans will be revealed. Restaurants and opening up the riverside pass would be a welcome bonus.

There has been a round of consultation on the development of tower block for about 850 homes, a primary school, restaurants and shops. And the latest plan may include a swimming pool. Keep an eye out for the next round of consultation on their plans. The boards around the site have permission to be there for the next 5 years, hopefully they can complete any building before that timescale.

Blackwall Yard
We have been working up proposals for a vibrant mixed-use development at Blackwall Yard, two minutes walk from East India DLR Station.
Our vision is to create a new neighbourhood here which opens up the site, respects the history of the area and brings to life this part of the Thames front. Our scheme will provide new connections through the site and along the Thames Path, as well as a two-form primary school, waterside public spaces, cafes, shops, community uses and a range of homes to suit London's housing need. 
We will be launching our consultation for the site next month (July) and will be providing an online exhibition hall for you to see, and feed back on our proposals whilst we are still unable to meet face-to-face.


Plans to be unveiled for Thames swimming pool site

Regeneration specialist Hadley Property Group has completed the purchase of its largest site to date at the 1.7 hectare Blackwall Yard on the north bank of the Thames.

Plans are now being finalised to develop the former shipbuilding dock into 850 market sale alongside a primary school, cafes and shops and a sustainable transport hub.

A key focus of the scheme is converting the neglected Blackwall Yard Graving Dock into an outdoor swimming pool.
Hadley will reveal details of its masterplan for the site during a series of digital consultation events in July.
The design team comprises Glenn Howells Architects, White Arkitekter and Panter Hudspith.

Andy Portlock, Chief Executive Officer at Hadley Property Group, said: “Blackwall Yard is one of the last great regeneration sites along the Thames, and the completion of this acquisition, particularly in the current climate, provides a significant opportunity for Hadley.
“Now our largest scheme, Blackwall Yard demonstrates the continued expansion of our portfolio as we remain focussed on delivering inclusive, innovative developments in London.

“An important part of East London’s ship building history, we will transform the site from an underutilised car park into a brand new waterside neighbourhood comprising more than 850 homes, a primary school, community hub and the reimagined graving dock for the people of Tower Hamlets.
“We have worked closely and collaboratively with the Council throughout the pre-application process and look forward to engaging with the neighbouring community on our proposals next month.”

It actually sounds like it’s going to be beneficial to the area.

That will be great if that comes off, though hopefully it won't take them the whole 5 years.
The jetty there has been used in the past as a temporary stop for the Clippers when the DLR was out of action.
That was in the days before we had the option of replacement busses.
