Two Blocks at Canada Water
Location: London, United Kingdom
Client: Sellar Design and Development
Programme: Mixed-use development including 16,500m² retail, 700m² cultural and leisure, 700m² health services, 2,800m² business use, and 1,050 residential units
This project seeks to meet the London Borough of Southwark’s aspiration to transform Canada Water into an active and viable town centre; a new destination for high quality local shopping, eating and leisure activities set in generous public space along the waterfront.
Maccreanor Lavington:MLA+ have taken on the role as masterplaners of the scheme and are also architects for Phase 1 – a mixed-use urban block that re-provides a large Decathlon sports store and head office currently occupying the majority of the site. The store occupies the lower levels of the plinth with residential cores above arranged around a large landscaped courtyard that sits on top of the store.
