2013/14 Queen Elizabeth Olympic South Park Plaza
The Legacy Transformation
The award of the 2012 Olympic Games to London was built on the commitments made to the on going legacy and regeneration of a significant land parcel once the Games had finished. The responsibility for the delivery of this legacy fell to the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), working closely with the five host London boroughs to ensure that all commitments made were delivered.
At the heart of this commitment lay the transformation of the 55 acre Olympic Park, from a space designed to cater for vast numbers of spectators visiting the temporary and permanent sportng venues, to a multi use urban parkland designed to cater for the needs of the five local boroughs. The South Plaza was identified as a unique space within the overall park, due to its proximity to some of the major retained sporting venues, The Arcellor – Mital Orbit, local amenities and transport links.
