Brunel Street Works

Brunel Street Works is one of the largest regeneration sites underway in the capital. A vibrant new urban quarter delivered on a complex site, this high-profile regeneration project is revitalising a Greater London Authority (GLA) disused site, close to a major transport hub, providing 975 mixed-tenure homes and commercial space and linking a new neighbourhood with Canning Town.

The development is being delivered by Opal, a joint venture between Vistry Partnerships and Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing. Additional partners in the project include L&Q, Fizzy Living and Linden Homes.

Set within a strategic location in the context of the Canning Town and Custom House wider regeneration masterplan, Brunel Street Works highlights the scale of projects which Vistry Partnerships can deliver through joint venture client relationships and technical excellence.

Brunel Street Works will provide a genuine mix of tenures and exciting spaces that add to the neighbourhood’s sustainability and vibrancy. One third of the site is being delivered as build to rent, one third as affordable homes and one third offered as homes for sale. To complement the homes, the scheme includes various commercial elements including a 152 bed Premier Inn Hotel, a local food store as well as a range of other commercial units and local business workshops.

It’s great to see the progress made here on site at Brunel Street Works. The revitalisation of Canning Town and Custom House is well underway now and this is an exciting time. Planning and regeneration is not just about producing shiny buildings. For Newham Council, it’s about putting people at the heart of everything we do and ensuring that all developments contribute to community wellbeing – socially, economically and environmentally. With that in mind, I am pleased to see the new scheme will provide 343 affordable homes, employment opportunities and safe attractive public spaces. I look forward to seeing the completion of the new homes Councillor James Beckles, Chair of Strategic Development Committee
