Poplar redevelopment receives planning consent

Stockwool has secured planning and listed building consent for the Leaside Business Centre project in Poplar, East London.

This mixed-use development comprises two new buildings, one commercial and one residential, between which there will be a landscaped courtyard providing amenity space for both uses. A three storey 587sqm commercial building addresses the main A12 street frontage and links the Grade II listed Bromley Hall and Old Poplar Library buildings, whilst a part three and part five storey building at the rear of the site contains 22 new apartments for affordable rent, intermediate tenure and private sale.

At ground floor level a covered route through the commercial building provides access to the courtyard space and residential building beyond, and this access route also contains an entrance to a double height glazed link space which adjoins, and links into, Bromley Hall at north end of the street frontage. The new work space will replace the existing Red Box temporary container structure on the site.

The scheme proposes the appropriate, sensitive and sustainable redevelopment of a key site allocation within the Council’s Local Plan, and a designated regeneration area. The standard of design is high and has been researched and developed with the Council’s design officers and with Historic England. The scheme will incorporate and enhance the protection of the existing listed buildings on the site and will enhance the Limehouse Cut Conservation Area.
