The final phase of an east London regeneration scheme has been submitted to planning chiefs.
The 650-home Rathbone Market development in Canning Town is being delivered by English Cities Fund (ECf), in partnership with Newham Council.
The scheme is part of the council’s £3.7 billion Canning Town and Custom House regeneration programme.
The third phase plans comprise of 162 privately owned properties and 54 affordable properties.
Duncan Cumberland, development director for ECf, said: “The third phase will round-up what is one of the most exciting and innovative developments in London, breathing new life into a once unloved part of the city.”
Phase 3 will comprise a mix of one, two and three-bed properties within three blocks, ranging in height from six to 14 storeys, arranged in a horse-shoe configuration around a verdant communal garden.
All ground floor properties will be two-storey, in the style of a town house, with double-height ceilings and rear amenity space onto the courtyard garden. Apartments on the upper levels will all have a generous balcony, and the great majority will have a double aspect.
The council’s planning committee is due to decide on the future of the third phase in April.
Duncan Cumberland said: “ECf are very excited about this submission which represents the final piece in the jigsaw for Rathbone Market.
"The design team have worked closely with London Borough of Newham planning department and have responded positively to comments from the design review panel. This submission continues the exemplar design of Phases 1 and 2.”
