Plaistow Hub will create a new local centre by Plaistow Underground Station. Alongside two separate residential buildings the project includes a new library, neighbourhood centre, supermarket, gym and café. The project will also create a new piazza and improve the streetscape by linking the locally listed Plaistow Underground Station to the new development and surrounding area.

Plaistow Hub will be constructed across two separate sites: London Road and Valetta Grove. The London Road site is located next to the Underground station and consists of a 23-storey building containing 100 new homes for private rent and a three storey commercial building.

Valetta Grove situated off Plaistow Road and opposite the Plaistow Station, will be redeveloped to provide 82 new private rental homes over 15 floors.

EDC will be providing the Engineering and Design Drawings to Construction Stage.

EDC has been appointed by Vistry Partnerships to complete MEP Design for the new Plaistow Hub Regeneration Project by Populo Living.

Populo Living is Newham Council’s wholly owned housing company and revenue generated from the project is being used to deliver 112 London Affordable Rent homes in the local area.
