Broadway Malyan to green up London's Isle of Dogs

Broadway Malyan has won over London Borough of Tower Hamlets with a mixed-use scheme that includes public squares, pocket parks and a tree-lined high street.

The authority resolved to approve the planning application for Crossharbour District Centre on London's Isle of Dogs last month, with landscape snaking around a supermarket and shops, 850 homes and 1,000 cycle-parking spaces designed by the multidisciplinary practice.

Director Geoff Brocklehurst said: "The scheme is extremely complex and this successful milestone is testament to our integrated team of design and public consultation experts working in with the local community over a four year period."

The planning application will now be referred to the Mayor of London for consideration and, if approved, building could start on site in 2013 with the centre standing at the heart of the Isle of Dogs.

"It could deliver a variety of new public open spaces and improve connections to Mudchute Park and Farm and Millwall Dock through public squares, vibrant new high street, children’s play areas, pocket parks and creative landscaping."
