Brunel Street Works is a mixed-use quarter offering 975 homes for sale and to let in Canning Town, London E16.

The new homes are for sale through Linden Homes.

The development includes a 152-key Premier Inn London Docklands (Canning Town) hotel.

Public Realm Improvements
Brunel Street Works will provide four new public spaces for residents and the local community, linked by enhanced public realm along Silvertown Way creating an inviting pedestrian journey. The ground floor of the new development will be activated by a wide range of mixed uses facing Silvertown Way, including cafes, a hotel, restaurants, a food store and employment space for the emerging creative sectors.

JTP led a collaborative design process with GRID and Cartwright Pickard; each of the three practices brought a unique character to their building within a selected palette of materials, resulting in a series of distinct but complementary buildings, set within four character areas that respond to the changing context of the site from north to south. Each building takes inspiration from the site’s history and proximity to the Thames Iron Works and Ship Building Company, creating the architecture of longevity with robust, high-quality materials.

Heartwell Buildings by Cartwright Pickard will include generous entrance lobbies with 24/7 concierge welcoming residents who will have access to a high quality landscaped and sheltered roof terrace, with exceptional views across London. Accessed from communal internal areas such as a residents’ lounge, private dining rooms and cinema room, these facilities will become a social focus that will support a real sense of community for residents.

Castalia Building by GRID is at the southern end of the site, facing the new public park. The base of the building contains a double-height commercial space, which GRID has identified as a potential new south-facing café to spill out into the park. Cantilevered above this, the building’s stepped form in plan responds to the geometry of the site and creates 105 dwellings.’

The nearest tube station is Canning Town (Jubilee, DLR), which is right next to the development.


The development is being delivered by Opal, a joint venture between Vistry Partnerships and Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing. Additional partners in the project include L&Q, Fizzy Living and Linden Homes.

Brunel Street Works will be built out in one phase, with a four-year build programme that started in late 2017.
