Barking Riverside Gateways Housing

Barking Riverside Gateways Housing

Barking Riverside is one of London’s largest housing development sites with outline planning approval for 10,800 homes and associated facilities. With 2km of River Thames frontage it offers superb potential to provide housing in a new community with superb accessibility to central London in a borough where property prices are more affordable for London’s workforce. One of Barking Riverside’s current challenges however is the oppressive entrance to the new development through a dated, unattractive industrial area. The contrast between Barking Riverside’s award winning architecture and the industrial area is stark and it also acts as a physical and perceptual barrier between residential communities.
