The 10,000 sq ft building, part of the International Quarter London (IQL) scheme, will feature restaurants, a rooftop terrace and bar and the park's visitor centre.

Designed by ACME and made almost entirely from timber, the frame began arriving on site during the summer and has now topped out - reached its highest point.

Andrew Tobin, project director of IQL, Lendlease said: "We're very proud to be able to bring this innovative building to Stratford, and of the part it will play in bringing our local communities within IQL and the wider area together.

"We're also looking forward to announcing more details in due course regarding the dining experience that will be available within this remarkable space."
