Reshaping Poplar

Masterplan, 2008
Location: Poplar, London
Client: Poplar Housing and Regeneration Community Association (HARCA)

We were asked by Poplar HARCA to investigate opportunities of development on a number of estates under the umbrella of Reshaping Poplar, a framework strategy responding to the need for unified development between the client, Poplar HARCA (RSL), the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and other potential stakeholders.
The investigation explored options for incremental development, intensification and decanting methodologies. The proposed improvements aimed to change the local population social mix in order to help improve the sustainability of social and community facilities at present not sustainable.
