Great Eastern Quays, Phase Two

Royal Docks

Project Details

GTP’s Great Eastern Quays Phase 2 development will provide 469 mixed tenure affordable homes for end users Notting Hill Genesis, together with 850sqm commercial space aimed at business start-ups.

The site sits at the north east end of the Royal Docks / Great Eastern Quays masterplan with views across the River Thames, and FCB’s design concept is for a predominantly brick-built neighbourhood with 12 blocks residential blocks of varying heights and configurations set between public realm garden squares.

All aspects of the technical delivery of this large scheme are challenging, and in particular the apparent simplicity of the elegant masonry façades with their subtle changes of brick, plane and bond require focus and complex specialist detailing “beneath the surface”.
