Poplar Riverside – Leven Road Gasworks

London, England

Up to 2,800 new homes will be built on the old Poplar Gasworks site in Leven Road.

The 20-acre site will eventually also include a secondary school, offices, shops, restaurants and bars, plus a small riverside park and a new towpath walk providing public access to this section of the Lea for the first time in over 200 years. Two sections of ironwork from dismantled original Victorian gasholders will be reused as public art.
