Muse and Poplar HARCA get the nod for 51% affordable housing scheme at Stroudley Walk
Muse Developments, one of the UK’s best at repurposing town and city centres, and leading housing provider, Poplar HARCA, have gained approval from London Borough of Tower Hamlets development committee, to bring forward 274 homes, with a 51% affordable housing provision at Stroudley Walk in Bromley-by-Bow.
The approved plans, designed by Regeneration Masterplan Architects (RMA), focus heavily on creating a safe and thriving, vibrant neighbourhood, and include a new pocket park and part-pedestrianised street, with business and retail spaces for the Poplar community to enjoy.
Rebecca Lewis, senior development manager at Muse Developments, said: “Our development at Stroudley Walk with Poplar HARCA, provides a real opportunity for us to provide much-needed affordable homes coupled with extensive public realm upgrades, to create a diverse and safe place for all.
“This site in Bromley-by-Bow has had a lengthy history and has unfortunately been neglected over the years. However, it can now look forward to a truly bright future with a scheme that brings investment, new homes and business opportunities right into the heart of the community.”
Paul Dooley, director of development and regeneration at Poplar HARCA, said: “The changes brought about through the redevelopment of Stroudley Walk will transform this somewhat forgotten part of Bromley-by-Bow. Stroudley Walk has a unique and rich history, having close links to both the suffragette movement and Mahatmas Ghandi.
"We look forward to making a big, positive difference to many local families lives by building new, affordable homes and creating safe and welcoming community space in this very special part of east London.”
