Barking Riverside Mixed Use Development
Elementa has been appointed on a phase of London and Quadrant’s Barking Riverside redevelopment, one of the largest and most significant new residential hubs in London. The ambitious new scheme will create around 11,000 homes on the development which is being built on a 180-hectare brownfield site on the northern banks of the River Thames. Until the 1990s, it was home to three power stations and a large amount of landfill.
A third of the site will be affordable housing, as well as 65,000 square metres of commercial, retail and community facilities, one secondary and up to four primary schools, public squares and walkways and a major new highway infrastructure.
Elementa will be working on plots 202b-203 of the masterplan which includes 227 dwellings and will form an important part of the growing community. This is also a key influx of new housing important to establishing the new transport links being brought to the area. The project will follow the overarching principles and vision of the scheme, ensuring an identity and character is created for this new town. The high quality housing must also abide to pioneering sustainability requirements, as the Barking Riverside development aims to be a showcase for sustainable urbanism and communities.
