Plans for the redevelopment of Canning Town’s Rathbone Market have now been released by architects CZWG, Skyscrapernews.com has reported.
The proposal will see the old market replaced with newer trading facilities, 4,500 sq metres of retail outlets and space for traders who want a more permanent trading spot.
Using distinctive red cladding on the outside of the buildings, the scheme will include 639 new apartments, a 22-storey tower and integrated public spaces.
Further colour will be added to the development, should it go ahead, as the architects have also planned to feature blue spines on some buildings.
"It will provide Canning Town with a new urban destination and bring the historic market back to life," Andrew Davis, partner and architect for the build told Property Week recently.
Should the colourful scheme get the go-ahead, its buildings will join a skyline of increasingly creative buildings, which include the Gherkin and Tower 42.
CZWG recently gained planning permission for a separate scheme between Canary Wharf and Canning town, which it hopes will attract "new residents including families, workers and other guests".
