Regeneration specialist Vistry Partnerships and Notting Hill Genesis have formed a joint venture to provide 241 new homes at Royal Albert Wharf in London.
Named Gallions Place, the new homes will be built within three apartment blocks, ranging from five storeys to 11 storeys representing the next phase of development at the major regeneration project in Beckton, providing 95 affordable homes (40%), as well as more than 17,000 sq ft of commercial space. The new Quarter will bring forward vibrant mixed use accommodation, including much needed new mixed tenure housing, retail and commercial accommodation for local people and businesses and creating a desirable place within the east end of London for people to live and work.
Working in partnership with the Greater London Authority who own the land, Gallions Place will also provide a range of public realm benefits and improvements. This includes a new urban park to the south of Gallions Reach DLR station, containing children’s play areas and new and enhanced walking and cycling routes providing greater connectivity for the local community to surrounding transport links and facilities.
Work will commence this Summer with expected build-completion by January 2023.
Royal Albert Wharf is one of London’s largest regeneration schemes. Led by Notting Hill Genesis, once all phases are complete the scheme will provide over 1,800 new homes. This phase is designed by PRP architects.
Vistry Partnerships had already constructed the first phase of Royal Albert Wharf at Great Eastern Quays and this phase coupled with Gallions Place will provide more than 1,000 mixed tenure homes.
Matthew Taylor, Managing Director of Vistry Partnerships London Developments, said:
“Having already constructed several phases at Royal Albert Wharf for Notting Hill Genesis, we are incredibly pleased to enter into this new joint venture to bring forward Gallions Quarter, the next exciting chapter. Working closely with Notting Hill Genesis and the GLA, the scheme is rapidly proving itself to be a fine example of true regeneration – breathing new life into the area, providing mixed tenure homes for all and creating opportunities for local people.”
Jake Brodetsky, Joint Venture Partnerships Director for Notting Hill Genesis, said:
“This is a really exciting project and we look forward to echoing the success to date of Royal Albert Wharf with these new homes and an urban park that will benefit the entire neighbourhood. Our work on the docks with Vistry and in partnership with the Greater London Authority has proven to be very popular with residents and communities alike and we are confident this joint venture will allow us to continue in that vain.”
