Omega Works, London

About this project

Omega Works, located at the junction of the River Lea & Hertford Union Canal facing the Olympic Village, was built on reclaimed land which was previously allocated for industrial usage, which required extensive remediation. 

The structure, which is supported by 20 metre piles, uses much of the technology learnt at New Crescent Yard.

Popular with artists and other creative type of industries, 58 live-work units were built in the first phase.

The second phase fronts the Hertford Union Canal and is within 400 metres of Victoria Park – East London’s version of Regent’s Park.

As a complete development, the 7 storey live/work building comprises 120 two bedroom units of at least 90sqm each and two retail units at ground floor.

72 parking spaces were provided across both phases and access to individual units is gained via external covered staircases and walkways.

A number of ground floor units benefit from mezzanine accommodation with majority of the units featuring balconies overlooking attractive water frontage views.
