Plans for a multi-storey pavilion in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park have been approved.
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) planning committee gave the green light to the 10,000 sq ft venue, which will be part of the International Quarter London (IQL) scheme.
Designed by ACME for developers Lendlease and LCR, it will be created from timber and host the park’s visitor centre, a cafe and two restaurants. There will also be an accessible roof terrace.
David Joy, the chief executive of LCR, said: “We are pleased to have secured another important planning consent for IQL.
“The pavilion will provide a new public space for the community within an impressive, high quality setting.
“An exciting addition to the development, the pavilion will join the many other attractions on offer to residents, workers and visitors in this thriving neighbourhood.”
The IQL development, on the Westfield Stratford City side of the park, consists of office space, new homes and community facilities on a 22 acre site.
