Plans for a new 10,000 square feet multi-storey pavilion in the Olympic Park have been given the go-ahead today.
The new timber development in the International Quarter London (IQL) is set to offer a roof terrace along with a cafe and two restaurants after receiving planning approval from the London Legacy Development Corporation earlier this morning.
A Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) visitor centre will also be housed on the site, which has become known for landmark buildings such as the Aquatics centre and theVelodrome.
From the terrace the pavilion will have views of the upcoming £1.1bn East Bank development, which will be the future home of iconic names such as Sadlers Wells and the V&A.
Situated in Stratford, the pavilion has been designed by ACME for property groups Lendlease and LCR to construct.
Jonathan Emery, managing director of property in Europe for Lendlease, said: "IQL is a world class business destination, sitting in the heart of east Londons Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and with great transport links. The pavilion represents a significant investment in placemaking and amenity, which underpins our ambition to build a new neighbourhood here."
