The London Riverside is a new development area in north east London, England and part of the larger Thames Gateway redevelopment zone.

It is one of two zones whose responsibility for delivery is with London Thames Gateway Development Corporation; the other is the Lower Lea Valley redevelopment. The area of the London Riverside development stretches from Beckton in the London Borough of Newham in the west to Wennington in the London Borough of Havering in the east.[1] The development spans the River Thames adjacent sections of these boroughs and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Much of the development will re-use brownfield industrial land on the river. The area totals 35 km². It is expected that by 2016 the London Riverside will provide 20,000 new homes and 25,000 jobs.

The boundaries of the London Riverside have expanded somewhat over time. The original area was bounded by the River Thames to the south and the former A13 road (now the A1306) to the north and stretched only as far west as Barking Reach. It has since expanded to include East Beckton and Barking Town.

Planned developments

Since October 2005, the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation has taken over planning functions from the local councils for this area. As of July 2006 the plans include:
