Waterloo’s character is layered, proud, distinct and resilient and is represented by a diverse community. The Waterloo Metro Quarter (Metro Quarter) will deliver a high quality over station development that integrates the new metro station with retail, commercial, community and residential uses including social and affordable housing. The development will provide new public domain, pedestrian connections, greater options for active transport and space for cultural and community facilities.
The development will act as a gateway to the broader Waterloo Estate with services and facilities that will complement the renewal of social housing and provide a diversity of housing types and tenures. The Metro Quarter consists of the complementary development of the land above and adjacent to the new metro station to create a new vibrant mixed-use precinct. The development opportunity will act as a catalyst for the Government’s urban renewal program for the Metro Quarter and the surrounding Waterloo Estate.
