Six shortlisted in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park new homes development

Six developers have been shortlisted to deliver up to 1,500 new homes at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.

The six developers are: Carillion-igloo and Genesis Housing Association, Grainger, Lend Lease, L&Q, Mace and Argent, Places for People and Balfour Beatty.

The bidders will be narrowed down to three, with the final development partner announcement expected to be confirmed in the autumn.

London Legacy Development Corporation and mayor of London Boris Johnson announced plans in July last year to accelerate the development, with a view to complete the project in 2023, six years ahead of plan.

The neighbourhoods of East Wick and Sweetwater will be mixture of affordable and private rented sector homes, adding to existing communities in Hackney Wick and Fish Island, in east London.

Mr Johnson said: “These neighbourhoods are about far more than bricks and mortar but about creating living, vibrant communities with a range of housing choices for Londoners, sitting at the heart of a dynamic new quarter of the capital. Having such a volume of interest from developers is a great step forward in this process.”
