Description of Brunel Street Works

Brunel Street Works is a mixed-use quarter for a GLA-owned site in Canning Town, London E16.

Brunel Street Works, developed by Opal, a joint venture partnership between Thames Valley Housing, Galliford Try and Fizzy Living, will deliver 975 homes and a range of mixed uses for Canning Town.

New Homes
The innovative housing mix is split evenly between private rent, private sale and affordable housing, including 30% family housing across all tenures.

The new homes are for sale through Linden Homes.

Rental apartments are available through Fizzy Living.

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.

Galliford Try Partnerships has commenced construction of 975 mixed-tenure homes at the Brunel Street Works site on behalf of Opal, a joint venture between Galliford Try and Thames Valley Housing.

Brunel Street Works is being constructed on land that was originally purchased by the London Development Agency to allow regeneration of an underutilised site. This land was the passed to the GLA, who, under the previous Mayor of London Boris Johnson, selected Opal through the London Development Panel to deliver a residential-led scheme on the site.

Following engagement with local residents and stakeholders, planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Newham and regeneration specialists Galliford Try Partnerships will now deliver the landmark regeneration scheme on behalf of Opal. As part of the residential-led development, Partnerships will also create 8,000 sq m of mixed-use and community space, including a 110-bedroom Premier Inn hotel, generating job opportunities for local people and breathing new life into this area.

The £400m development project, which has a four-year construction programme, will see the homes built across five distinct blocks, ranging from nine to 26 storeys in height. The project is comprised of 30% privately-rented homes managed by Fizzy Living, 35% affordable housing (consisting of 172 social rent homes and 171 shared ownership and intermediate rent homes) managed by L&Q, and 35% open market sale homes to be sold by Linden Homes. The mixed-tenure homes will combine with the commercial spaces to create a unique and vibrant new community.

Galliford Try Partnerships’ Chief Executive, Stephen Teagle, said: “We are delighted to be working with the GLA and Thames Valley Housing as our partners on this major scheme. As one of the UK’s fastest growing regeneration companies, this exciting project follows a number of other high-profile contracts recently awarded to our business throughout London. Projects like Brunel Street Works are further evidence that we have the expertise and ability to support the Government’s ambitions to deliver 300,000 new homes across all tenures. We are now looking forward to working with our partners to transform this redundant site into a vibrant new neighbourhood.”

James Murray, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development, added: “We welcome the start on site at the Brunel Street Works with our partners in delivering much-needed housing in London. We look forward to working with them further to build the genuinely affordable homes that Londoners need.”

Guy Burnett, Group Development Director at Thames Valley Housing commented: “Brunel Street Works demonstrates our commitment to working with our partners to realise a shared ambition and deliver new homes and employment opportunities that meet the needs of the local community.”

Andy Rowland, Managing Director – East Region, at L&Q said: “We are delighted to have secured the management of the 343 affordable homes at Brunel Street Works, consisting of social rent, shared ownership and intermediate rent properties. This exciting mixed-tenure development will provide much-needed homes and commercial space and is another example of how we are working closely with partners to provide high-quality homes and services to residents on a range of incomes.”
