Thames View East
2011 - 2014
The redevelopment of the eastern end of the Thames View Estate in Barking provides 276 high quality affordable homes for Londoners, achieved without grant-funding or cross-subsidy: the development was made possible by a new private investment model designed to enable social regeneration.
Pollard Thomas Edwards and Jerram Falkus Construction have designed and built the development for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and developer Explore Investments, a Laing O’Rourke Company. Thames View East is a 100% affordable home scheme of 151 family houses, 35 duplex flats and 90 one and two bedroom flats. High-quality traditional homes have transformed the estate’s typography, with the original 1950s nine-storey tower blocks and poor quality low-rise stock now demolished.
The Council will nominate and manage all the tenancies, and all the homes have let very easily – the majority to existing local people previously housed in unsatisfactory conditions.
