The wider Gallions Quarter seeks to create a new mixed-use community in the Royal Docks, within London’s only enterprise zone. The vision is for two nuclei of activity to grow around the waterfront and the DLR transport nodes.
In partnership with Notting Hill Genesis, Gallions Point includes 292 new mixed-tenure homes located around three distinctive community courtyards, connected by a new linear park and an ecological public space alongside the DLR route. The urban form reinforces the urban street pattern to create a rich, diverse and inclusive community.
The masterplan vision is to provide a great place to live in, whilst fostering a strong community for new residents. In addition to the homes being delivered to achieve the London Plan sustainability objectives, all mixed-use spaces will achieve BREEAM Very Good.
Climate change adaptation and resilience strategies are underpinned through the masterplan orientation, scale and building articulation and integrated sustainable urban drainage attenuation. As an extension of the London Green Grid Framework, and in response to the Newham Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP), the structural landscape of the masterplan is reinforced with rich biodiverse habitat creation in the public and private realms and on the green roofs.
