Case Study

Wood Wharf, London

We were instructed by LB Tower Hamlets to assess the affordable housing offer proposed by the applicant for the outline planning application on the 13.6 Ha Wood Wharf site.

The challenge

The scheme as proposed sought a comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment of the site comprising up to 3,610 residential units, 15,000-27,500sq m of new retail (A1-A5) floor space, 165,000- 350,000 sq m of Office floor space, a hotel of up to 350 bedrooms and additional leisure and community facilitates along with extensive landscaping and a primary school.

The solution

We assisted the Council in securing 25% affordable housing by habitable room with potential for additional payments to secure further contributions towards affordable housing through a proposed review mechanism.
