Canning Town’s latest residential development tops out as rapid changes continue

Work on a residential block of housing opposite Canning Town station has topped out at the latest stage of Hallsville Quarter.

This is one of the last b locks at the site which previously saw housing, shops and a hotel.

Canning Town has seen some rapid changes over the past decade with Hallsville Quarter one of the most visible from Canning Town station.

Due for completion this year

Upon completion it will feature 1,100 homes with excellent transport links including new DLR trains due to for introduction in coming months.

Another block slightly west rapidly approaching completion can be seen from the DLR platform.

This is part of the Manor Road Quarter. Subsequent phases have been approved which will bring a further 449 homes.

A short distance away sits the Crown Wharf development where Barratt gained approval for 871 homes in late 2023.

And finally the biggest plot of them all at Limmo Peninsula. This is land owned by Transport for London and previously used as an Elizabeth line worksite.

TfL launched a plan to build some years ago then halted plans. They’ve now resumed and seek a development partner.

The expectation is 1,500 homes will be constructed on site.

TfL highlight the possibility of a walkway beside the meandering River Lea as it near the Thames as well bridges for pedestrians and cyclists.

One downside for future residents is that far more vehicles will be heading past the site as Silvertown tunnel’s extensive junctions are designed to push traffic across the Lower Lea Crossing alongside.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.
