Make and LBS get the green light for Meridian Gate tower scheme
Make is delighted to announce that its design for a 53-storey, mixed-use tower at Meridian Gate on the Isle of Dogs has been approved by Tower Hamlets. Tower Hamlets described the scheme in their planning committee report as “an elegant tower which makes a positive contribution to the skyline.”
The highly sustainable scheme, devised for LBS Properties and Meridian Property Holdings, will provide over 400 private and affordable homes. The slender form enables 70% of the site to be dedicated to new public realm providing access to a cafe, public gardens and a children’s playground.
Frank Filskow, Make partner and lead project architect, states: “Meridian Gate will be an exciting new addition to the Isle of Dogs and responds to the Councils aspirations within the developing South Quay Masterplan. The slender design maximises the opportunity to provide a significant new park for residents and the local community.”
