Willmott Dixon lands £40m Greenwich Millenium Village deal

Willmott Dixon has won a deal worth around £40m to build 206 homes under the next phase of Greenwich Millennium Village.

Willmott Dixon has taken its secured order book for new housing in 2013 to £160 million with the deal for the Taylor Wimpey Central London and Countryside Properties joint venture project.

The new homes will be available for private sale and shared ownership.

Designed by architects Jestico + Whiles, Greenwich Millennium Village is a collection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments being developed over several phases close to the Greenwich Yacht Club, The O2 and Canary Wharf.

Charlie Scherer, chief operating officer for Willmott Dixon’s housing company said: “We’re delighted Taylor Wimpey Central London and Countryside Properties have chosen us to build the next major phase of this fantastic development in Greenwich.

Construction of this phase is scheduled to conclude in spring 2015, with the clients aiming to develop up to 1,800 homes at the Greenwich Millennium Village over the next 15 years.

This latest deal follows three other regeneration programmes that Willmott Dixon has secured in London this year. The company has started work on the last stage of the Church End estate regeneration in Neasden, the ten-year Aberfeldy Village regeneration in Tower Hamlets and the Brentford Lock West regeneration next to Grand Union Canal.
