TOPPING OUT AT HALE WHARF

Last week, phase 1 at Hale Wharf topped out. The two urban buildings of 14 and 20 storeys respond to the canalside urban context along Ferry Lane and Monument Way.

They have been are developed in the manner of robust historic waterside buildings with stock bricks used in their exteriors and zinc roofs, which will be installed over the next months. The residential towers provide flexible commercial space on ground floor. All residential units are accessed from a new waterside public square at the centre of the site.

The new Hale Wharf bridge over the River Lea Navigation lands near the end of a new public square, creating a new link between the surrounding neighbourhoods of Tottenham Hale to the west enabling further connection to the parklands to the east.
