Developer Countryside is working
with Notting Hill Housing Association to create 911 homes on the Fresh Wharf site in Barking.
The brownfield 6.87-ha former industrial estate has easy access to the North Circular Road and is located on the banks of the River Roding. The scheme will add to a number of new housing projects across the borough.
Work on the site will begin later this year and is expected to be completed in 2026.
The initial concept design proposals for the area were created as part of a joint project by Jestico + Whiles and Glenn Howells Architects.
Since that initial project Metropolitan Workshop has been brought on board to update the plan.
