BARKING RIVERSIDE

LONDON, 2009

 

URBAN MASTER PLAN AND SUPERVISION FOR A NEW TOWN OF 11'000 HOUSES AT THE RIVER THAMES IN LONDON

The Barking Riverside project proposes housing for 25'000 people and will be built within the next 20 years on one of the largest underdeveloped sites in Greater London. The breathtaking site on the northern bank of the river Thames lies at the heart of the Thames Gateway Development, not far from Canary Wharf and the Lower Lea Valley (site of the 2012 Olympics). The design provides 11'000 homes, urban facilities (shops, bars, restaurants, recreation, sports), schools, a large new park, a number of public squares, ecological values, and an animated riverfront resulting in 2000 new jobs. Accessibility to the river will be one of the features increasing value for the new residents and the inhabitants of the adjoining borough alike. The master plan describes in detail the structure and quality of the urban space, also outlining the plan's development within the next 20 years.
