Liz Lake Associates were appointed to satisfy landscape conditions on the outline consented 2A site, part of the larger Gallions Quarter redevelopment comprising of four separate sites: Gallions 1A, Gallions 2A, Gallions 2B and Armada South, totaling approximately 3.41ha. Gallions Quarter is a mixed-use development adjacent to Gallions Reach DLR station near Royal Albert Dock, London E16.
The area around the Royal Docks is experiencing significant regeneration and substantial commercial investment following the construction of a new Crossrail station at Custom House, which is due to open in 2018. The Phase 2A landscape provision includes four main identifiable character areas. These include the Urban Park, Gallions Green (a linear park that runs east to west across Phase 2A and 2B southern boundary) and Gallions Street which make up the public realm landscape provision. Block 1 incorporates a substantial amenity podium deck which accounts for the fourth character area and private amenity for residents. The Phase 2A masterplan presents an inclusive landscape; providing access, circulation security and open space for all users, public and residents to safely enjoy. The material palette is informed by the wider Gallions and surrounding area redevelopment, reflected in the Design Guide. A hierarchal tree planting strategy will ensure the scheme is underpinned with strong structural landscaping, softening and complementing the built form.
