Plans receive approval for 10,000 sq ft restaurant pavilion at International Quarter London
Plans have been approved for a new 10,000 sq ft pavilion at International Quarter London (IQL) by the London Legacy Development Corporation Planning Decisions Committee.
The new building will include two restaurants, a café, and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) Visitor Centre, complemented by outdoor space.
There will also be an accessible roof terrace with views across IQL, the QEOP and what will become East Bank, the future home of Sadler’s Wells, the V&A and UAL, among others.
The multi-storey pavilion, designed by ACME for Lendlease and LCR, is formed by a series of timber terraces and will create a new gateway to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) in Stratford, east London.
Jonathan Emery, managing director of property, Europe, said: “IQL is a world class business destination, sitting in the heart of east London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and with great transport links.
“The pavilion represents a significant investment in placemaking and amenity, which underpins our ambition to build a new neighbourhood here.”
David Joy, chief executive of LCR, added: “We are pleased to have secured another important planning consent for IQL. The Pavilion will provide a new public space for the community within an impressive, high quality setting.
“An exciting addition to the development, the Pavilion will join the many other attractions on offer to residents, workers and visitors in this thriving neighbourhood.”
IQL is a thriving and diverse new neighbourhood, and when complete will be home to around 25,000 workers.
The Pavilion is one of many ‘third space’ locations across IQL that provide opportunities for people to work outside the traditional confines of the office.
