Bouygues UK and its property development company Bouygues Development are launching the second phase of the Hallsville Quarter project in the Canning Town district of Newham in east London.
The contract is worth approximately £130m.
The second phase is a major part of the Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Project, which will provide a new town centre for this emerging area of east London and link it to facilities on Barking Road.
Designed by John McAslan + Partners, Hunters and Associated Architects, the project will build additional shops, restaurants, a hotel and approximately 350 new residential flats.
Bouygues Bâtiment International chairman and chief executive Olivier-Marie Racine said: “We are looking forward to beginning the next phase of the Canning Town Regeneration Project, as we are currently in the process of handing over the first phase. Providing new housing, a hotel, public spaces and streets with shops and businesses, Bouygues Development is creating a dynamic and vibrant district that will breathe new life into Canning Town, creating new opportunities for the local community.”
Works are beginning and handover is scheduled for 2017.
Planned to be carried out in five phases, the Hallsville Quarter is one of London’s biggest regeneration programmes.
It will include the construction of roughly 1,100 new homes, more than 30,000 sq m of leisure and retail premises and more than 3,000 sq m of space devoted to community amenities.
The plan also incorporates new public spaces and facilities for cyclists, as well as 1,100 secure car parking spaces.
