Rick Roberts Way Masterplan London 2020–2021

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), London Borough of Newham (LBN) and St William commissioned a multidisciplinary Design Team to develop an Urban Design and Landscape Framework for the Rick Roberts Way sites.

The Design Team comprising Henley Halebrown, 5th Studio, JCLA, Max Fordham and Price & Myers cover the fields of Architecture, Urban design, Public realm and landscape, Sustainability, Energy & Utilities and Civil & Transport Engineering.

The sites comprise three parcels of land across a 4.3ha linear site, owned by LLDC, LBN and the National Grid. Together the site aims to deliver a target of 750 homes, a secondary school with a sixth form, and 1.2ha of open space.
