London City Island Wins Award, Regent Quarter is Highly Commended

MARCH 2017

EcoWorld Ballymore’s London City Island development was named ‘Best New Place to Live’ at the prestigious London Planning Awards. The awards, held at City Hall, were chaired by Jules Pipe CBE, Deputy Mayor for Regeneration, Planning and Skills. The scheme was praised for “creating a new neighbourhood providing 1,700 homes, new public spaces and public art and a new home for both the London Film School and English National Ballet”.

Rolfe Judd Planning have been working alongside developers EcoWorld Ballymore and Glenn Howells Architects since 2013, providing strategic planning advice for the delivery of this significant development which is a short distance from Canary Wharf.

“It’s been exciting to work on a project of the scale and ambition of the London City Island development. We are thrilled it has been recognised at the London Planning Awards”.

Regent Quarter by P&O Developments was highly commended in the ‘Best Project Five Years On’ category. Rolfe Judd Planning worked on the project with Rolfe Judd Architecture who designed the first phase. It was praised for “its strong heritage-led approach, transformational effect it has had on this long neglected piece of London and catalysing influence on the wider regeneration works to King Cross”.
