We are co-ordinating the delivery of a significant regeneration project involving the redevelopment of a 12 acre former industrial brownfield site which will become the new home of the English National Ballet and the London Film School.
Previously occupied by a food manufacturing plant, the new development comprises a cluster of 13 buildings ranging from 3 storeys to 25 storeys in height.
The development will deliver 1,706 residential units alongside 20,492 square metres of business, retail and educational uses. At the heart of development will be a new arts and educational facility, which will become the home of the English National Ballet. The London Film School are also proposing to relocate from their current home in Covent Garden to a purpose built facility to the south of the development. The arrival of these world class institutions at London City Island will create a new cultural quarter for east London.
The scheme also involves the construction of a footbridge across the River Lea providing a new pedestrian link to Canning Town station, within the London Borough of Newham
