Sixth form college and tower plans for key Stratford corner location

A couple of 1980s blocks could be mostly swept under way in Stratford town centre under development plans.

The two po-mo buildings occupy a prominent corner position.

It’s unlike too many will shed a tear for the tacky twins. They’ve looked ready for the bulldozer for years.

A sixth form college is planned on five floors and student flats above taking a replacement tower up to 36 floors in height.

Jubilee House would entirely come down, while Broadway House would be partially replaced.

A footbridge to Carpenters estate (where future plans are still in limbo after many years) will remain while plans to replace it are drawn up in future.

Developers state a new square and green space would be created. The building doesn’t use space in such a prominent town centre location particularly well with single-level car parking.

The buildings are surrounded by new builds, and sit close to Stratford Centre shopping Centre.

Plans to rebuild the Stratford Centre including 550 homes have gone nowhere in recent years.

Rebuild plans stalled?

It’s now almost three years since plans were submitted and covered on this site. Click here to view.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
