Southwark Council Advances Development of £3bn Canada Water Masterplan
Southwark Council Approves Next Phase of Canada Water Masterplan
London’s Southwark Council has recently given the green light for the next stage of the £3bn Canada Water masterplan. This phase involves the construction of 380 homes, a Tesco supermarket, and a new park, further enriching the area’s residential and commercial landscape.
Architectural Brilliance by Maccreanor Lavington
The plans for Zone G, which is situated off Redriff Road and across a portion of Surrey Quays Leisure Park, was brilliantly designed by the renowned architect, Maccreanor Lavington. The project aims to establish five residential buildings with a generous 42% allocation for affordable housing. For those looking to renovate their homes to match this new architectural standard, London’s Expert Home Renovations and Interior Design Services can provide the necessary assistance.
New Park Designed to Boost Community Engagement
The proposed park will be located across a portion of Surrey Quays Leisure Park and part of the former Printworks building’s car park. Designed by Architects Townshend, the park will feature a café pavilion and an adventure play space, intended to bring the community together and provide a leisurely outdoor area for all ages.
Design Contributions from Renowned Studios
The pavilion building was meticulously designed by Peckham-based design studio Feix & Merlin, while the innovative play space was conceived by the internationally acclaimed Dutch studio, Carve. These collaborative efforts promise an aesthetically pleasing and functional space for the community.
New Tesco Supermarket with Underground Parking
The development also includes a Tesco supermarket, complete with underground parking. This addition to the area will provide convenient access to shopping for locals and visitors alike.
Statement from British Land
Phil Tait, Director of Development for Canada Water at British Land, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, ‘The vision for Canada Water is to deliver a new town centre, connected with the local community; a place where everyone living, working, and studying in the local area truly belongs and can access the opportunities that it will bring, sharing in its success.’
Bringing a New Lease of Life to Canada Water
With the introduction of Zone G and the park, Canada Water is poised to see an influx of green space, homes, shops, cafés, and public amenities. These additions are expected to significantly enhance what Canada Water currently has to offer, providing a new lease of life to this part of London.
