The design and build of 219 new homes on an East London heritage landmark at Three Mills, home to the world’s oldest tidal mill.
The development includes new homes, commercial space and improved riverside walkways to Bromley-by-Bow, on the southern fringes of the Olympic Park. Homes on the development will be built to generous space standards, and will be available for rent, shared ownership and private sale. Almost 50% of those available for rent and shared ownership will be large, family sized properties of three bedrooms or more.
A key challenge of this development will be the special consideration to the Grade II listed House Mill, within the Three Mills Conservation Area. The new buildings will be set back 55 metres from the listed buildings. The new homes will be designed with a Victorian warehouse aesthetic that reflects the area’s industrial heritage and compliments the existing character and appearance of the area.
The development is expected to generate new jobs and will provide local labour and training opportunities through the development’s construction and via successful employment and training programmes.
