Completed in 2011, Alberta House, also known as ‘Streamlight’, is located by Poplar Dock Marina within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Designed by BLDA Architects for Swan Housing Group, it consists of a 24-storey and two lower blocks, containing 133 mixed-tenure apartments in total. All the units meet the Eco-Homes rating of ‘Excellent’ and were built to the ‘Lifetime Homes’ standards. The scheme also comprises play areas, community facilities and retail space on the ground floor.

BLDA Consultancy provided initially rights of light strategic assistance, followed by full planning assistance which involved a full daylight and sunlight assessment and report to accompany the planning application submission. The comprehensive involvement led to the consent being granted by Tower Hamlets Council.
