This development achieves an ambitious brief extending across two neighbouring sites and including refurbishment of two listed properties. The planning permission was gained by BuckleyGrayYeoman; RMA Architects were employed to complete production drawings for the developer, completed for an RSL.
The scheme is located on Commercial Road in East London close to Westferry DLR Station. The scheme is split Into two sites; to the west one block fills the entire site footprint, extends from Commercial Road, forms a new street frontage to St Anne Street and into St Anne’s Row to the north. The second block to the east is set in a backland site at the end of St Anne’s Row. Both sites, though separate, form a cohesive family resemblance in scale, material and detail and will contribute to a wider ambition for improvements to nearby sites.
