A tower set to reach 32 floors in height is now visible from some distance away as work on the first of 804 eventual homes continue.
Manor Road Quarter is the latest of many development around Canning Town either recently complete or well underway.
Upon completion the tower will stand out in this shade of blue.
And still those bloody pylons live on.
Just 21 per cent of all homes on site across the development with be London Affordable Rent, which is the closest tenure to social homes most developments get.
The development at Manor Road saw a retail park demolished for housing, and located just west of Canning town DLR and Jubilee line station, and the bus station out front.
Work is set to be carried out in three stages.
The site sits beside the A13 Newham Way road which is a major – and congested – route acting as a main route from London to Essex and the M25.
Other large developments in the area include Hallsville Quarter, as seen here from the DLR platform:
This has seen homes, shops and a hotel constructed. Other phases are now well underway:
The next major development will be TfL’s land formerly used for Crossrail construction at Limmo Peninsula.
Transport for London had signed an agreement in 2019 with Grainger to develop the site, but have since agreed not to proceed.
Let’s hope this isn’t a repeat of Woolwich DLR station where a number of sites in the town centre lay vacant 13 years after services begun running.
