London Dock Masterplan

Wapping, London

London Dock is a significant transformation of Wapping’s historic docklands into a thriving new neighbourhood. Since 2012, we have been working with St George City on the design and delivery of a masterplan for 1,800 homes and an extensive new public realm on the former News International site.

The 6.1 hectare site had been closed to the public since the docks were built in 1799 and formerly accommodated dock functions, bonded warehouses and print-works. The masterplan breaks down the defensive nature of the site and encourages movement within, while connecting the new neighbourhood to the rest of Wapping.

At the heart of the scheme is a landscape proposal that was collaboratively developed with Allain Provost. The proposal consists of a series of public gardens that link the various spaces and buildings of London Dock. Complementing these spaces is an exemplary residential led mixed-use scheme, with inspiration drawn from the area’s dockland heritage. Just under 30% of the accommodation is affordable (social rent and intermediate).

This work includes the detailed design for approximately 630 homes and the associated public realm for Phase 1, the first buildings of which - Clipper Wharf, Admiral and Alexander Wharf - are currently in occupation.
