A former petrol station and garage are set to become the site of a new 33-home development.

Gold Seal, on New Barn Street, Plaistow, will consist of one, two and three-bedroom apartments in a series of stepped blocks positioned around a central courtyard.

The development, designed by David Miller Architects, will create more than 3,000 sq m of floor space on the derelict plot of land, opposite the junction with Denmark Street.

Planning permission for the £8 million project has already been granted.

Project architect, Katy van Geffen, said; “This is an exciting project, not only affording us the opportunity to be part of the regeneration push for the area, but to create a set of quality, affordable homes.

“The biggest challenge for us so far has been the site itself, formerly a car breakers yard and garage, which required decontamination.

“What is really satisfying however is that we are finally transforming this once noisy, industrial site into cohesive, stylish urban housing that will complete the street, resulting in a meaningful improvement to the environment for residents, old and new”.

In addition to courtyard access, each building will have its own green roof and some properties will benefit from private access to the existing park behind it.
