Plans to create another 364 homes at a regenerated post-war estate in Bow have been approved by Tower Hamlets council.

Leopold Estate in Bow provide a mixture of private and so-called affordable housing, situated around two new landscaped courtyards.

Development partners, Countryside Properties and Poplar HARCA, working with architects Metropolitan Workshop, created the high density design.

The latest plans form the second and last phase of the regeneration and will include 256 apartments for private sale while 108 will be affordable homes.

Flats will range from one to four bedrooms spread across four buildings varying in height from four to nine storeys. The lay-out includes private courtyards and a public ‘pocket’ park.

Director of Development at Poplar HARCA, Neal Hunt, said: “The regeneration of Leopold estate is a great success story. The first phase of new homes and new green spaces transformed the area.

“This final development phase will not only bring more affordable homes to the area but also more landscaped spaces for the community to relax and play in, making Leopold a neighbourhood its community can be rightly proud of.”
