Enhancing the sense of waterside destination

  • Project: Limehouse Basin North, London Docklands
  • Client: British Waterways London
  • Scale: 2ha of land

British Waterways (London) approached Lathams to help prepare a vision for Limehouse Basin North after identifying a number of shortcomings. Lathams successfully explored ways to remove problematic "dead” space which is a threat to general use and a magnet for undesirable activity, as well as promoting the creative reuse of the viaduct arch spaces, beneath the Docklands Light Railway (DLR).

Recognising the potential for Limehouse to act as a gateway to the nearby Olympic Village, the implementation of the ideas contained within the ‘vision’ for Limehouse Basin, will breathe new life into the area, creating a vibrant and distinctive waterside destination for all to enjoy.
