Prince of Wales Drive, Tower Hamlets

Four redundant gasholders are making way for 955 new homes and a network of public squares, courtyards and footpaths which will reconnect this industrial site with the surrounding community.

The masterplan focuses on creating a welcoming, green and useable landscape, with adaptable event spaces and incorporating a major public artwork shaped from the remnants of the former gasholder itself.
