Shaping a new community in East London
Silvertown is being revived and re-imagined as a waterside destination to live, create, work and play. With historic industrial landmarks Millennium Mills and Silo-D, Silvertown is bursting with potential. Lendlease and Starwood Capital are leading the regeneration of Silvertown.
Creating stronger connections
Silvertown is at the heart of the regeneration of the Royal Docks. We will form a new legible public realm that will reconnect the site back into the fabric of London.
Creating thousands of new homes and jobs
We will build on the industrious past of the Royal Docks to incubate local talent, grow local jobs and attract those who work hard. Silvertown will also be a place to call home with approximately 6,000/6,500 new homes being delivered.
GREEN LIGHT FOR FIRST PHASE OF SILVERTOWN
Detailed planning permission has been granted for the first phase Silvertown, which will include refurbishment of the landmark but currently derelict Millennium Mills building.
Silvertown Quays boasts a rich industrial heritage as it formed part of London’s main docks during the first half of the 20th century. Phase one of the redevelopment includes refurbishment of the Millennium Mills, a derelict and imposing flour mill that has not been in use since the 1980s. The site is also home to Silo D, a Grade II listed, modernist and reinforced concrete grain silo, which dates from the 1920s and will also become a focal point of the new development.
Plans for phase one of the scheme include circa. 1,000 new homes and have now been signed off by the Borough of Newham. Those plans were put together by Lendlease and Starwood Capital, working in a joint venture as The Silvertown Partnership. Their focus will now be to work alongside the local community as they take the plans forward.
When redevelopment of the site is complete Silvertown will provide thousands of new homes and non-residential space including commercial, brand, retail, hotel and community use.
The finished scheme is also expected to generate thousands of jobs and make a key contribution to the continuing regeneration of an important part of east London.
