Situated on a slender island on the River Lea, this project provides much needed new housing to meet the needs of this changing part of north-east London. It will also open up access to a striking waterside setting, long inaccessible and underused, with new pedestrian and cycle bridges that will bring people in and improving connectivity between Tottenham Hale and the Lea Valley Park. The architecture, its roofscape and use of brick draws references from the historic canalside identity characteristic of east London. Small retail units will activate the ground floor while the employment barges moored on the channel are safeguarded.
