Revised Wapping Wharf North proposals

The developer Umberslade have released their revised proposals for Wapping Wharf North. Two features of the revision stand out: a reduction in the height of the development and the introduction of a ‘Cargo’ style ‘to reflect the character of the existing shipping containers’.

Their statement summarises key features of the revisions:

The proposals … have been significantly revised following two years of consultation with Wapping Wharf traders, local residents, stakeholders, advisory bodies and the wider public. Feedback identified the need to retain the special character of CARGO, discussion about the height of some of the buildings and questions about how the landscaping would be delivered and maintained, all of which have been carefully considered and addressed by the design team.

Two documents provide more details: Summary of design changes and Proposals submitted.
