Meridian Water, London
Client: London Borough of Enfield
Brief: Mixed use masterplan
Size: 100 hectares
Status: Conceptual Master Plan and Area Action Plan design guidance completed
The ambition for Meridian Water is to reshape an area that is currently an industrial and big box retail site, to provide new homes and to grow and diversify the local economy, creating job opportunities across the salary spectrum. Meridian Water will be a model for a sustainable piece of city, making the most of the opportunities offered by a new Meridian Water Station, Cross Rail 2, and its location in the Upper Lea Valley and Regional Park. The development of Meridian Water will not only provide much needed homes and employment but will also benefit the existing communities in Enfield. This new piece of city will integrate areas of the borough and the Lee Valley that are currently disconnected and inaccessible. It will also provide new civic, cultural and leisure facilities and shops that the existing population will be able to easily reach and enjoy.
