Shortlisted in the PLANNING Category
The Canada Water Masterplan is guiding the development of a new urban centre at the heart of south-east London's Rotherhithe peninsula, historically a network of working docks and canals connected to the River Thames and more recently the home of a 1980s low density shopping centre. The Public Realm sits at the heart of the masterplan and brings together a network of carefully considered locally distinct public squares, parks and streets. Sitting between two underground stations, with access to the water, it offers the opportunity to create a characterful well-connected London Neighbourhood.
Vote for this project in the 'People's Choice award. The voting deadline is 1 November 2021.
Zero Carbon London

Zero Carbon London

→ Plot A1 designed using the Design for Performance standard (based on the Australian NABERS standard)
→ Provision of cycle lane infrastructure
→ Zero waste to landfill

The Canada Water Masterplan will link a new major town centre of diverse uses with existing neighbourhoods to the north and south, replacing the existing shopping centre with a legible network of streets, laneways and public spaces. The target for Phase 1 is for zero waste to be sent to landfill with priority given to reusing, recycling and giving new life to old items. A minimum of 35 per cent of the masterplan will be public open space. Mixed use community with a nearly 50/50 commercial and residential split supports low carbon living with broad range of amenities within walking distance.
