In limited architectural completion OMP won the commission to develop proposals for the Glengall Bridge site at Millharbour in the docklands - the first site to be developed under the LDDC and now perhaps the last major site to be redeveloped on the South Quays since the advent of the Millennium masterplan evolved from the development of Canary Wharf.
The site is owned by developers Tameric who purchased the existing buildings at the height of the 2006 - 2007 bubble so consequently the development potential has remained difficult in current economic conditions to achieve funding viability for a redevelopment.
In conjunction with GVA Planning Consultants OMP have developed a mixed use proposal with ground floor podium commercial and retail uses with a development of approx. 650 dwellings over constituting a site development capacity of around 2100 habitable rooms/Ha which will be an increase in planning policy accepted capacity of between 20 - 25%.
The first phase planning application and enabling phase of development has be lodged with the LA (March 2013) following considerable pre-application consultation with the LB of Tower Hamlets planning team and has been registered on the basis that this has officers support. A full and more extensive masterplan and application on is to follow to see the entire 3 acre site wholesale developed over the next 10 years period.
