Phase one of the Meridian water development has been approved by Enfield Council with a price tag of Â£1.5bn, improving transport links for commutes to offices in London and creating thousands of new jobs.
Meridian Boulevard is the first part of the 200 acre development and will form the basis of the Lee Valley project.
Meridian Boulevard will link together the Eastern and Western sides of the development which includes 2,700 homes withing the four and five storey tower blocks.
Phase One will begin in April 2015.
Enfield Councillor Goddard stated: “Meridian Water is the key development opportunity in London”. He added, “This Â£1.5bn redevelopment is transformational and inspirational”.
The development will create approximately 8,000 new homes and 3000 new jobs, with better public transport links for the everyday London Office commute.
Meridian Water will also expand to include shops, a police station and even a primary school due to open as early as September 2015.
A transport hub linked to Angel Road Station will also be a part of the development, with the possibility of redirected bus routes to accommodate inhabitants of Meridian Water.
There have also been suggestions of improved rail services which will potentially link up with Liverpool Street Station and Stratford.
