Development now underway at former Silvertown hotel site

A new block set to provide 140 homes is now rising in Silvertown.

The site was formerly a Ibis hotel on North Woolwich Road and sits just east of where the DLR turns north to serve London City Airport station.

Located directly east of Pontoon Rach which recently completed and includes 295 homes, the site also sits beside another potential major area of development to the south.

That’s known as Thames Road Quarter and could see 1650 new homes alongside a primary school plus a riverside park.

This area between the Thames and docks continues to see major change, with the DLR threading its way through.

That ranges from developments such as Silvertown Quays to the west with 6,500 homes down to new homes approved this year on a petrol station.

Recently some preliminary work also appears to be underway beside West Silvertown station for 252 homes at Lyle Park West.

This shot shows both that site and the 800-home Deanston Wharf site behind.

And in 2021 plans for 161 homes on Thames Road were approved.

All these numerous plots ensure the DLR wont be short of passengers in years to come.

New trains on the line with additional capacity are set to begin running next year.
