Silvertown Quays plans to be unveiled
Latest plans for the proposed regeneration of Silvertown Quays will be shown to the public next week.
The scheme, which looks at bringing homes, restaurants, commercial buildings and shops to the area, is aiming creating up to 14,000 jobs.
It will see around 2,500 apartments and the whole development will be valued at around £2.5billion.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is backing the plans which will also see innovative brand pavilions brought to the Royal Docks, aiming to persuade people to shop for its products online rather than in-store.
Speaking last year, Elliott Lipton of Silvertown Partnerships said of the plans: "The residential aspect is critical but we also have restaurants and leisure activities and a concept called Brand Showcases.
"The Apples and Jaguars of this world, for example, are looking at new ways to reach out to customers.
"We're not seeing the death of shops but a change that will allow people to experience brands."
The exhibition will be held on Friday, January 24 between 8am and 8pm and the following day from 10am to 6pm at the Britannia Village hall near West Silvertown.
A spokesman said: "We are holding a public exhibition, open to all, to discuss our early plans and hear the views of local communities."
