dRMM kicks off 2020 with three planning approvals
We are thrilled to start 2020 with the news that we’ve achieved planning on three London based projects.
In Silvertown, our mixed-use scheme on Plot 1 will breathe life back into the former docklands. The scheme’s three residential buildings will respond sensitively to the dock’s industrial history, with scalloped facades evoking the silhouettes of the grain silos that once stood on the site. Transforming the docks, Plot 1 will create new homes, cafes, and restaurants to activate and revitalise the area. Plot 1 is part of the larger regeneration of Silvertown, a joint venture between Lendlease and Starwood Group, with the GLA as developing partner.
In Waddon, Croydon, we’ve proposed 126 tenure blind high-quality homes set within a vibrant green landscape, overlooking metropolitan open land. Front doors will open to a garden at the heart of the development that will provide an enlivening and dynamic extension of the public realm, offering space for natural play. Each apartment block will be arranged to maximise views and daylight, and be constructed using different coloured brickwork to grant each block a unique identity.
The third scheme to win approval is a 12 storey mixed-use scheme in Burnt Oak that will create a landmark building providing 100 high-quality homes with commercial space on the ground and lower ground floor. Two distinct buildings varying in height step down towards the north of the site, with a podium courtyard accessible to residents. Carefully designed frontages will activate the street level and offer retail and amenities for both residents and neighbours to enjoy.
