International competition: Masterplanners for Thamesmead Waterfront

Along with words like visionary, skilful, knowledgeable, capable and effective, we are seeking master planners that are empathetic, open, diverse, communicative and collaborative....

With approximately 2km of river frontage, Thamesmead Waterfront has the ability to deliver a new concept for waterfront living that is accessible, inclusive and productive. Surrounded by a richness of green spaces and a natural environment, the site is expected to include a strong retail, commercial and leisure offer as well as a substantial number of new homes, of all tenures.

On behalf of the Thamesmead Waterfront Joint Venture, a 50/50 joint venture partnership between Peabody and Lendlease, we are delighted to announce this competition to find forward-thinking, strategic masterplanners who will start defining and shaping the type of place that Thamesmead Waterfront will become.

The client is looking for teams with an inventive and deliverable approach, that will create a genuine synergy between people, place and nature.

  • Thamesmead Waterfront
  • View across Thamesmere Lake, looking East
  • View across the site to the River Thames
  • View towards Central London

This is a competition to find the right masterplanners with the right skills and attitudes, with whom an amazing project can be created. It is not a competition to identify a design solution: that will be created through a collaborative design process with stakeholders, once the masterplanners have been appointed.

Deadline for Stage 1 submissions is 12 noon on Wednesday 25 November 2020
