Plans unveiled for new residential buildings in Stratford
The plans for IQL's two new buildings in Stratford were unveiled in September, as designed by Alison Brooks Architects.
The residential buildings with commercial and retail space at street level will be 35 and 14 storeys tall respectively, next door to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The hexagonal towers are set to be a fresh take on traditional 20th century residential towers, using new technology to bring wellbeing and green space to the heart of the project.
The new apartment buildings in Stratford will incorporate green roofs, planted terraces and "park ledges" - pathways that enable greenery to spiral up the building. The massing of the building has been designed in such a way that each of the new build homes will be flooded with natural light, whilst landscape Architects LDA Design have created a natural amphitheatre and nature trails to bridge the gap between the development and the park.
Construction of the new buildings in Stratford will double the residential offering at IQL, bringing a further 350 new flats for sale. This is in addition to the existing Glasshouse Gardens residential building, which was named by The Times as one of the UK's best new places to live.
Kristy Lansdown, Lendlease's project director for International Quarter London, said: 'As London continues to move east, Stratford is transforming at speed and these architecturally striking towers will become a landmark that can define and connect the International Quarter London with the wider Olympic Park amenities and Stratford community.'
