JTP’s Brunel Street Works will deliver 975 new homes to the Silvertown Way area, as well as four new public spaces.

The homes will be a mixture of private rent, private sale and affordable housing as part of a strategy by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan to provide housing that all Londoners need.

Rebecca Taylor, who is leading the project, said: “Brunel Street Works will be a vibrant, mixed-use urban quarter, harnessing JTP’s placemaking expertise through an extensive community engagement process to create a diverse community with a distinct identity, at the high density needed in this area of East London.

“The proposals will re-stitch the site into its historical context, drawing on its industrial heritage.”

The four-year project has been approved by Newham Council and is expected to begin later this year.
