The Olympic Delivery Authority and Lend Lease have unveiled the latest legacy designs for the Olympic Village.

The designs show the residential schemes as well as the courtyard areas, pedestrian walkways and new open spaces that will be created in the Olympic Village.

Panning permission has recently been secured for the first three residential schemes.

More than 300 construction workers are on site carrying out the foundations - inserting concrete columns into the soil to reinforce the ground where the first blocks of the Olympic Village will sit.

Olympic Delivery Authority chief executive David Higgins said: ‘These new images show the good progress being made in design and construction work on the Olympic Village to help maintain the momentum of this huge project.

‘The Olympic Village will be one of the strongest legacies from the Games, delivering quality new homes for Londoners, many of which will be affordable, together with new parks, public squares and community facilities.

‘Discussions on the funding of the Village are continuing and though the economic environment is challenging we expect to conclude these around the turn of the year.’

Swiss landscape design firm Vogt Landschaftarchitekten will develop the masterplan for the Village jointly with urban designers Patel Taylor, with continued support from Fletcher Priest.

The Olympic Village schemes will be designed by a variety of established and emerging designers including Ian Simpson, Glenn Howells, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, and 10 others.
