Planning permission has been granted for the first phase of the Silvertown Quays commercial development, creating new homes and jobs
The regeneration of Silvertown Quays will include the refurbishment of the landmark but currently derelict Millennium Mills building and is expected to generate thousands of jobs.
Lendlease and Starwood Capital jointly acquired The Silvertown Partnership in June 2018, and Lendlease is working as development manager on the project.
The team of designers working on the project includes Prior and Partners, AHMM, dRMM, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Maccreanor Lavington, with Arup advising on transport, Aecom on infrastructure and West 8 and Churchman Thornhill Finch on the landscape.
Plans for phase one of the scheme include circa. 1,000 new homes and have now been signed off by the Borough of Newham
Silvertown Quays is a swathe of land bordering the Royal Victoria Dock and close to Thames Barrier Park. When redevelopment of the site is complete Silvertown will provide thousands of new homes and non-residential space including commercial, brand, retail, hotel and community use.
Silvertown Quays is able to boast a rich industrial heritage as it formed part of London’s main docks during the first half of the 20th century.
The site is also home to Silo D, a Grade II listed, modernist and reinforced concrete grain silo, which dates from the 1920s and will also become a focal point of the new development.
