A few recent Jubilee line trips have revealed work underway and the first floors on a forthcoming tower beside West Ham station popping up as part of a 3,800-home development.
TwelveTrees Park is a Berkeley Homes development that will see also see a new western station entrance.
The first building to rise is Evergreen Point tower which will include 430 flats.
Phase one overall will include:
“1,057 Residential Units , 650.3 sqm of Business Floorspace, 4,735.4 sqm of Retail Floorspace and 12,118.1 sqm of Community and Leisure Floorspace including a Secondary School.
Associated infrastructure, including a new bridge connection to West Ham Station and two footbridges across Manor Road; Alterations to the existing access road and vehicle bridge; Streets, open spaces, landscaping and public realm; car, motorcycle and bicycle parking spaces and servicing spaces”.
The shot below shows a crane and concrete frame on the left now visible from the Jubilee line platform:
Upon completion the entrance/exit will lead onto a public space with shops and cafes, and beyond a green strip lined with high density housing either side.
The site was formerly a Parcelforce site with then-Mayor Boris Johnson appointing Berkeley Homes to develop the site back in 2015.
Berkeley are going big on the transport angle, with the DLR and Jubilee Line station plus c2c services.
West Ham bus stations sits to the south along with much industrial land. Could this site act as a trigger for mixed-use development to spread south?
