This study responded to the clients brief of exploring potential for redevelopment on the site of the existing East End Market in Poplar.

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.
