Royal Wharf is an entirely new neighbourhood along the Thames riverfront in east London. GHA is masterplanning all 17 ha of the former brownfield site for Ballymore, creating a community of homes for 10,000 including many family townhouses, a school and community centre.
As well as providing the detailed design for 1,700 units out of the nearly 3,385 in total, GHA is acting as the design champion for the scheme for the London Borough of Newham.
This includes guiding the involvement of other selected practices that are working on building envelopes, liaising with the GLA, and ensuring that a legible layout with active frontages is achieved in practice.
