The Mayor of London has resolved to approve the revised plans for Blossom Street. In September 2015 the Mayor called in the scheme after it was refused consent by Tower Hamlets Council, despite being recommended for approval by its own planning officers and Historic England. British Land and the design team, led by AHMM with Duggan Morris, DSDHA and Stanton Williams, amended the proposals in response to pre-application consultation and discussions with the Greater London Authority. The project will deliver a total of 350,000 square feet in seven buildings, including office space, 13 retail units and 40 apartments.
