Leaside Lock, Bromley-by-Bow
Coming soon...

These new homes in Bromley-by-Bow, East London will form part of the most important regeneration schemes in East London since the Olympics.

About these homes

Location

Leaside Lock, Bromley-by-Bow

Architect

Assael, Pitman Tozer, PRP

Number of homes

965

Tenure of homes

Mixed tenure, including 50% affordable

The 965 new homes at Bromley-by-Bow, 50% of which will be affordable housing, will be on two neighbouring sites that already have planning permission – both sites are now owned by Guinness. The project will also include workspaces, retail and leisure space, helping to create  a vibrant new neighbourhood.

The development at Bromley-by-Bow sits at the heart of the greater London Authorities’ Stratford Opportunity Area, which on completion is expected to deliver 32,000 new homes and 50,000 jobs.

Construction phases

Leaside Lock will be completed in three phases with Phases One and Two already in construction, with pre-cast panels and brickwork installed for the majority of the ‘Blocks’ across the site. With ‘Block A’ now finalised, we expect to hand over the keys to our first customers later this year (November 2021).

The framework of Phase Two is currently (October 2021) underway. We’ve erected a cofferdam by the River Wall, which will act as a flood defence so we can install permanent sheet piles and build a retaining wall. Once this River Wall has been fully constructed, we can start works on Phase Three of the development.

Not only will we provide many affordable homes to Bromley-by-Bow, we are also investing in the infrastructure across the local area, including:

  • Support for the delivery of new schools and an expansion of an existing school
  • An extension and expansion of healthcare facilities
  • New and improved access to the Lower Lea Valley
  • A new urban square and park for the local community
  • Internal amenity space, which may include commercial spaces for yoga studios and workspaces for customers.

Start of the project

In April 2019, we kick-started this regeneration project with a controlled demolition of the site. We were happy to be joined by guests from the Spotlight Youth Centre, a free creative youth service based in the local community. We were also joined by representatives from the Greater London Authority, housing association Poplar HARCA, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Councillor for Tower Hamlets, Dan Tomlinson and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC). Everyone came together to celebrate the start of an exciting new project, which will provide much-needed affordable housing for the people of Tower Hamlets.
