Alumno are partnering with Hurlington Capital, and working with architects pH+, to develop a PBSA scheme on a site in Stratford, East London, adjacent to Pudding Mill Lane DLR. The site sits within the LLDC area near the Olympic park, as well as many higher education institutions, including the new UCL building which is only 10 minutes’ walk away. The brownfield site is immediately adjacent to the proposed Pudding Mill Lane masterplan, which will see a number of residential, commercial and other buildings introduced to the immediate vicinity.
The proposal incorporates 316 rooms in a building varying from 4 to 8 storeys. The development consists of a mix of cluster en-suite rooms and studios, as well as substantial levels of both internal and external student amenity. This includes a gym, lounges, study rooms, private dining, a games room, cinema room and 4 separate roof terraces with individual characters. The design also opens up the walkway along the City Mill River, while upgrades to other local walking routes are also being explored.
In line with Alumnos commitment to celebrating local artists across our developments, a full art strategy is being developed for this project. While at ground floor will be a series of individual affordable workspaces will be available to rent by local artists.
Planning is due to be submitted summer 2023.
