One of Stratford’s most promising high-rise developments is finally seeing some momentum of two towers on site.
The blocks at Rondo didn’t really move for months above what will be the podium level but that’s now changed.
Located beside Stratford International stations – both Southeastern and the DLR – it was the site of a bus station. Telford Homes are now building 380 homes.
It could be said its a bit short-sited given the bus station was there for international passengers but of course Stratford International has never been international – and doesn’t look like ever being so as things stand.
Land was sold by the Department for Transport, HS1 Limited and London & Continental Railways.
The above image is taken to the north with the DLR station sitting between where the photo was taken and the development with Westfield visible behind.
Nearby on a site along International Way are plans for “construction of six blocks to provide up to 750 residential dwellings (class C3), up to 1,020 bedspaces of student accommodation (sui generis), up to 10,000sqm (GIA) of non-residential floorspace and up to 370sqm community hub”.
The site is known as IQL North and expected to see a full planning application – possibly in 2024.
