Bromley-By-Bow tube station is the arrival point of my site. The surrounding area will be a residential quarter arranged on an axial grid. This will allow views down to the river / canal side, and the local landmarks (Olympic Stadium, Bromley-By-Bow Gas works (the amenity “Hub”) and the Urban Forest to the South East) and also mitigate the effect of micro climate created by the buildings.
