Work Begins On Stratford Plaza

Commuters stepping out of Stratford railway station may have noticed construction starting to the south of the bus station - this is actually the beginning of Stratford Plaza, a 93 metre tall residential-led project that was previously known as Olympian Tower.

The project occupies a busy site that's not only next to Stratford Bus Station, but also has the A11 less than 100 metres to the south and overlooks the Jubilee Line to its west. In transport terms it is one of the best connected residential developments in London, although this may be a curse rather than a blessing if you want somewhere quiet.

The scheme first surfaced back in 2007, but has been stuck in development hell since along with many of the other taller towers planned for the area. Designed by Allies and Morrison Architects, the elliptical tower is now being developed by Telford Homes who purchased the scheme from the Unex Group who at one point hoped to develop a 41-storey version.

Telford Homes is building the 26-storey version of the scheme that will contain 260 apartments on the top twenty floors with five levels of office below and ground floor retail. Once completed Stratford Plaza will be the second tallest building in Stratford by a mere three metres after the Spirit of Stratford. It's a title it is unlikely to hold for long.
