Transforming 30 hectares of undeveloped former industrial land on the south bank of the Thames in Kent, the newest phase of NWM’s Northfleet Embankment West masterplan will see a mixed-use development bringing 532 homes, three parks and a community centre alongside 46,000sqm employment and 850sqm retail space to Ebbsfleet Garden City.
A stone’s throw from Ebbsfleet International Station, which jets passengers into St. Pancras in a mere 19 minutes, this brownfield development will open up a previously inaccessible part of the River Thames with a new waterfront promenade and provide a network of pedestrian and cycle routes including a planned new Fastrack bus route.
Adjacent to the Grove Road Regeneration Area and backing onto the local high street, the development will deliver an economic boost for the area. The major scheme, built on the site of a former cement works and chalk quarry, will form an extension to the existing Northfleet community, and is said to reflect the area’s industrial heritage.
Alongside masterplan architects BPTW, M+A are developing the landscape package in line with RIBA Stages 2-3 for two RMA applications for both the Triangle Site and Vineyard Pit, as well as Church Path Pit within the masterplan.
