Over the past two years, the Hadley design team has been intricately involved in a collaborative effort with Tower Hamlets Council, local residents, and various community groups to meticulously shape and refine plans for an ambitious mixed-use development at Blackwall Yard in Poplar. This development is positioned a mere stroll away from East India DLR Station, marking a significant stride towards transforming what was once an underutilised, concrete-clad private car park into a vibrant riverside community.

Spanning submission to the council in December 2020, these plans aim to introduce 898 new residences, with an admirable commitment that 35% will be dedicated to affordable housing. Beyond residential spaces, the blueprint envisions a comprehensive ecosystem comprising a two-form primary school tailored for young children in Poplar and its vicinities, a welcoming community hub, and retail spaces including a cafe, pub, and grocery store. Central to this development is the creation of a new public square and verdant spaces, designed for the enjoyment of both residents and visitors.

In an effort to revive and reconnect the area with its rich maritime history, the proposal plans for the reopening of a long-closed section of the Thames Path. A focal point of this rejuvenation will be the historic graving dock, set to be transformed into an amphitheatre-style garden and an outdoor swimming pool, breathing new life into the site's shipbuilding heritage. Additionally, the introduction of new pedestrian and cycle routes is anticipated to weave through the development, extending out to the inviting riverfront.

The development emphasises a rounded approach targeting environmental, economic, and social value enhancement, aligning with Tower Hamlet’s vision of cultivating a green, safe, and cohesive borough. Enhancements include innovative shared mobility services aimed at promoting sustainable travel and a commitment to reconnecting the community with the waterfront through the establishment of a new riverbus station at Blackwall Yard. This addition promises not only expedient riverbus services across East London but also expansive river views enriching the journey.

Not to be overlooked, the heart of Blackwall Yard celebrates its maritime legacy through the adaptive reuse of the historic Grade II-listed dock into an outdoor swimming area. Adjacent, a new riverfront pub and restaurant is poised to offer panoramic vistas across the Thames and Docklands, further enriching the social tapestry of the area. With public seating thoughtfully placed to frame captivating views over the Thames towards landmarks such as the O2 Arena, the newly reopened Thames Path invites rediscovery and engagement, marking a new chapter in the site’s storied history.
