The team taking forward the Marlowe Road and Wood Street Plaza redevelopment will be at this Saturday’s Christmas Fayre to share their latest plans for the estate and the Plaza, and to hear your concerns and views.
Developers Countryside and Stitch Architects were recently appointed to take forward the project. As well as the phased demolition and rebuilding of the Marlowe Road estate, it will also lead to new buildings nearby and a new footprint, layout and design for the Plaza and the space around Northwood Tower. Following an approach from Wood Street First, supported by the local Business Forum, representatives from the development team and the Council and Ascham Homes will be staffing a stall at the event.
Come see the results of Architects E17’s Wood Street project at their launch party on 11th October at 2pm in the Plaza.
To showcase and celebrate a local popular space, Architects E17 have been busy over the summer, running a mapping project and organising different workshops to help gather thoughts and ideas about Wood Street.
With input from local people of all ages, architecture students from the University of East London and pupils from Frederick Bremer School will develop and assemble a small temporary installation in the Wood Street plaza. This will be accompanied by an exhibition of the Wood Street Build Project.
Read what locals think about Wood Street and what they would like for the future, see the installation and join in the conversations. You never know: perhaps the judges for the High Street award that Wood Street has been shortlisted for will turn up. In any case, hope to see you there!

As part of their Wood Street Build Project, Architects E17 are running an Ideas Day this weekend. It’s all happening at St Gabriel’s Family Centre, Havant Road E17 this Saturday (6 September) between 1 and 5pm.
To celebrate a local popular space whose future is uncertain – as reported on this website – a group of local architects are planning to assemble a small temporary installation in Wood Street Plaza. Architects E17 explain all below.
