build-to-rent development

A major new mixed-use build-to-rent development in Barking, East London has been given the green light

McBains secured planning permission for the redevelopment of Trocoll House on behalf of developer PATRIZIA AG.

The build-to-rent development will consist of a 150,000 sq ft commuter-belt scheme comprising 92 one-bed and 106 two-bed apartments with views over Canary Wharf.

To the north of Barking rail and underground station, the existing Trocoll House site is currently home to a two-storey car park and a six-storey commercial building.

The commercial offices are above a JD Wetherspoon public house, which will be replaced by a new pub unit for them as part of the redevelopment plans.

The existing site will be completely demolished and then redeveloped to make way for apartments.

‘Providing innovative residences’

Mark Leeson, operations director at McBains, said: “Trocoll House is PATRIZIA’s first Build-to-Rent investment in London, and will be one of the most significant developments in Barking to date.

“As people adapt to the ‘new normal’ and spend more time both living and working at home, they are increasingly wanting more from their living spaces.

“Trocoll House will deliver this on both fronts. McBains is delighted to continue our track record of providing innovative residences that respond to the ever-changing needs of residents.”
