Aberfeldy Village project in Poplar being masterminded by Malaysian developer and local housing association

Plans drawn up for 1,600 homes at a site in Poplar, east London, have been sent into Tower Hamlets council.

A joint venture between Malaysian developer EcoWorld London, which is also part owned by Willmott Dixon, and housing association Poplar Harca, is behind the proposal, which features plans drawn up by a team of architects including Levitt Bernstein and Morris & Company as well as designs by LDA Design and ZCD Architects.

It also features a public park and new town square at the end of Poplar’s Aberfeldy Street.

A new walking and cycling route is planned as well which will go underneath the A12 which bisects Poplar and Newham.

The original Aberfeldy Village masterplan was given outline planning in 2012.

Phases 1, 2 and 3a have been completed with phase 3b due for completion within the next year, by which time the scheme will have built 901 homes as well as a public park and community centre.
