Planning success in Oklahoma City and London

AHMM has recently secured planning permission for two projects in very different locations. In Wandsworth, south west London, AHMM’s plans for the redevelopment of the Ferrier Street industrial estate (above, bottom) were granted consent by the local council; the mixed use scheme for TR Property Investment Trust includes office and residential units including affordable housing. Meanwhile, in OKC, AHMM’s proposals for the office and retail Block 13 in the city’s developing Wheeler District (top) were approved by Oklahoma City’s Riverfront Design Committee.

Planning permission for Millennium Mills

Detailed planning permission has been granted by the London Borough of Newham for the redevelopment of the landmark but currently derelict Millennium Mills building, forming the first phase of plans for a major regeneration of Silvertown Quays, a historic dock area of east London. The overall development by Lendlease and Starwood Capital will provide thousands of new homes, new jobs and non-residential space including commercial, brand, retail, hotel and community use. As well as Millennium Mills, an imposing flour mill that has not been in use since the 1980s, the first phase also includes Silo D, a Grade II listed, modernist reinforced concrete grain silo, which will also become a focal point of the new development.

World Architecture Festival 2019

The Bower won the WAF Award for Completed Buildings – New and Old at the World Architecture Festival held last week in Amsterdam. Judges commented on The Bower’s ‘clever realisation of [the] existing to create unique office space knitting together city fabric with minimal 'acupuncture'-like intervention.’ Six AHMM projects were shortlisted for awards and presented to festival judges in a ‘crit’ format watched by festival attendees, and Simon Allford talked about AHMM’s FifthMan publishing initiative on the Festival Hall Stage.
