Canning Town

Project aims to maximise Canning Town's commercial value

Part of the London 2012 Olympics led regeneration of East London

Situated on a busy interchange next to Canning Town Station in East London this existing retail park needed revitalising in response to the 2012 Olympic led regeneration of the area.

Working closely with the client and their cost consultants, CHQ Architects have developed a design maximising commercial value by improving the car parking, rationalising and enhancing the existing architecture and increasing flexibility in the floor plans to increase the potential range of occupiers.

Adding to the commercial potential and increasing the draw to the site CHQ have designed for the scheme a unique new cafe building and a stunning new drive through restaurant to compliment the upgraded retail units together with new landscaping as a setting to the architectural improvements.
