Thameside
West

Creating a new
neighborhood
for London

Thameside West is a riverside development in East London that will play host to more than 5,000 new homes, multiple new retail spaces, a new school, a new nursery, spaces for creative industries as well as a new London parkland.

We are delivering the project in joint venture with the GLA, and we’re working closely with TFL to build both a new DLR station for the site, and a brand new river crossing for London – The Silvertown Tunnel.

When complete, Thameside West will become a thriving neighbourhood of creativity, community and riverside living.

  • 5,000 new homes
  • Mixed tenure development
  • River-front living
  • New DLR station
  • New Parkland and conservation space
  • New school
  • 1km riverside walkway
  • Industrial and creative workspaces

The constraints

Above the site, the City Airport flight path restricts the height of the buildings that can be constructed. The Emirates Airline disembarks at the site’s edge, creating a no-build zone at its center. Below, the Jubilee line and a road tunnel prevent building work on the land directly above-ground. And the DLR weaves its way over half the site.

The opportunities

The site comprises one of the largest brownfield sites in London, presenting a fantastic opportunity to deliver much needed new homes and jobs for Newham and London. The site will deliver a brand new mixed and balanced neighborhood for Newham, where people can work, live and relax. The site benefits from almost 1 kilometre of uninterrupted river frontage, delivering a new riverwalk and offering fantastic views.

In the mean time…

We have engaged with This Is Projekt Ltd to facilitate a series of “meantime” use space for the creative industries. In conjunction with our partners at the GLA this has led to a time expired office block being converted into a temporary centre of creativity that accommodates fashion designers, local community start ups, animators, and other design led companies, as well as a new local community cafe.

In the longer term it is our intention to work with our tenants in an effort to integrate them into the future ambitions of the wider masterplan. We are particularly proud of the success of the building to date.
