A seven-strong list is in competition to design the 5,000-house project
The companies have been selected from the Homes and Community Agency’s masterplanning procurement panel by Enfield Council, the Greater London Authority, Environment Agency, Transport for London and the London Development Agency.
The finalists are: AECOM; Arup; Broadway Malyan; LDA Design; Scott Wilson; Taylor Young; and Urban Practitioners.
They are competing to oversee the large waterfront scheme located close to the Lee Valley Regional Park.
“Meridian Water is a development area of massive significance in the region and London, and is a huge opportunity to create a sustainable mixed-use eco-community with a broad economic base,” said Michael Lavender from Enfield council.
“There’s room for everything from commercial and manufacturing operations to waterside apartments, parks and cafés. We want to work with development partners who share our aspiration to achieve the very highest levels of sustainability for the area and give them our support wherever we can, and our delivery plan will make that happen.’
The winning team will be announced in March.
