Linkcity, advised by planning and development consultancy Montagu Evans, has been granted planning permission by the London Borough of Newham for Phase 4 of its Hallsville Quarter development masterplan in Canning Town.
This latest phase proposes a new mixed-use city block which will deliver 377 purpose-built student accommodation rooms, a wide range of student amenity spaces including a first-floor garden and 7th-floor roof terrace and 566 sq m of new ground floor, flexible commercial floorspace and landscaped public realm.
Phase 4 marks the penultimate phase of the Hallsville Quarter Masterplan, which, when complete, will deliver 1,148 new homes with a variety of tenures, over 30,000 sq m of leisure and retail space, a new health centre and community facilities close to Canning Town underground station. New pedestrian links and cyclist provisions are also included as part of the six-hectare development.
Montagu Evans provided planning, townscape/heritage and viability advice.
Phillippa Prongue, Managing Director of Linkcity, said: “Linkcity is excited to be completing the main part of the Hallsville Quarter new town centre working in conjunction with the London Borough of Newham as part of the wider Canning Town and Custom House urban regeneration programme. This phase will provide much-needed student accommodation in close proximity to some of London’s world-leading education institutions, and this will add vitality and diversity to the local community and businesses.”
Simon Marks, Partner at Montagu Evans, said: “This approval facilitates the next stage in unlocking this vital development for Canning Town. Hallsville Quarter will help meet local needs with more and a greater variety of homes, many of which will be affordable, in a well-planned development close to public transport, shops, health and leisure facilities.”
The project is expected to be completed in June 2025.
