Description of Manor Road Quarter
Manor Road Quarter is a new development planned for the Manor Road Retail Park and the former HSS Hire shop sites in Canning Town.
The first phase of the development will provide 804 new homes, of which 402 (50%) will be much-needed affordable homes in the borough.
Flexible commercial space on the ground floor.
A new linear park will be created with significant highways upgrades.
Manor Road Quarter on ca. 4.72 acres (1.91 ha) is made up of two sites, straddling the southern end of Manor Road, just north of the A13 and a short walk from Canning Town station.
Manor Road Retail Park
This site makes up the majority of the proposals and was formerly owned by the Greater London Authority (GLA). The former MFI unit at the Manor Road Retail Park is currently
vacant, although it is occasionally used for ‘pop-up’ events. The remaining units are currently occupied by Carpet Right and Wickes superstores. The site also includes a large surface car park. Manor Road Retail Park is bounded to the west by the Stratford - Canning Town DLR and tube line and by the A13 (Newham Way) to the south.
Former HSS Hire shop site
The HSS Hire shop site, which is owned by the English Cities Fund, is to the east of Manor Road, at the junction with Barking Road. The buildings on this site have already been demolished.
