Matchmakers Wharf regenerates the former Lesney Toy factory introducing 209 much needed affordable and private homes, artists’ studios, retail space, a children’s play area and residents’ gym.
The scheme comprises four residential blocks located within two buildings. A 15 storey tower at the south end of the site serves as a marker building, whilst the remainder of the accommodation wraps across the site stepping from ten down to four storeys to reflect the scale of smaller development to the north.
In addition to the new homes, the scheme delivers 3,500m² of commercial space. Included in this are 49 artists’ studios managed by Acme Studios, a London-based charity funded by Arts Council England.
Matchmakers Wharf leads the way for continuing regeneration in the Homerton area and beyond offering a vibrant development for a diverse community.
