Bouygues UK has been appointed as the main contractor for the third phase of the £240m regeneration scheme, Hallsville Quarter
Linkcity has signed agreements with multiple partners for the third phase of Hallsville Quarter, its major regeneration scheme with the London Borough of Newham at Canning Town.
The 278 private rental homes in Phase 3 have been forward funded by Grainger.
It includes 143 shared ownership properties and 199 affordable homes – including 50 extra-care apartments.
Phase 3 plans
This latest phase of the Hallsville Quarter development will deliver an integrated health centre under an innovative new model with local health partners, 12,109 sq ft of business accommodation, 16,630 sq ft of leisure space, a new basement car park for 143 vehicles, and new public spaces, including fountains and play areas.
Phase 3 continues the masterplan, with the first two phases having already delivered 528 new homes, a 196-room hotel, new restaurants, shops, a gym, leisure spaces, a car park and enhanced public realm.
In total, the Hallsville Quarter development, which is part of the £3.7bn Canning Town and Custom House regeneration project, will provide 1,100 new homes.
‘One of London’s biggest regeneration projects’
Managing director of Linkcity, Nicolas Guérin, said: “Hallsville Quarter is one of London’s biggest regeneration projects, and the third phase will be the largest to date, more than doubling the number of new homes the scheme has delivered so far.
“It’s exciting to have signed agreements with trusted partners and high-quality operators, enabling work to begin on this significant project.”
The Mayor of Newham, Rokhsana Fiaz, commented: “I’ve been working positively with Linkcity for some time to get to this important new stage.
“The Hallsville Quarter project has helped to transform this part of Canning Town and I’m really glad that Morrisons and other shops are now open and providing great local facilities for residents.
“I’m also very pleased that 199 of this next phase of new homes will be a mix of social rent and shared ownership and of a high standard.
“In addition, 50 of them will be allocated to Newham residents who need extra care services and facilities, enabling more people to remain independent and cared for in their own homes.
“Finally, as part of my community wealth building agenda, we’ve agreed with Linkcity to recruit 35% of the entire construction team from Newham through our improved Workplace service.
“All in all, I’m looking forward to continue working with Linkcity to ensure that Hallsville Quarter continues to fulfil its potential for the people and businesses of Newham.”
Helen Gordon, chief executive of Grainger plc said: “We are very pleased that work is now commencing on this next phase of Hallsville Quarter, which will deliver a total of 278 new private rental homes for Grainger.
“The Canning Town area is undergoing significant regeneration, and we know from our experience with Argo Apartments that this is a very popular location to live, with such great access to the wider city.
“This next phase further enhances our presence in Newham and builds on the recent launch of Millet Place at Pontoon Dock, which we have also delivered in partnership with the Linkcity team.”
Phase 3 of the Hallsville Quarter development is expected to be complete in 2024.
