Three investors have been shortlisted in the race to take on the Olympic Village.
A JV between Shard developer Qatari Diar and Delancey made the list, together with Hutchinson Whampoa and the Welcome Trust.
The rival bids are vying for the chance to take on the Olympic Delivery Authority’s stake in the 2,812 home development.
Triathlon Homes has already purchased 1,379 of the units which will become affordable housing.
But the remaining 1,439 private homes are up for grabs, along with six as yet undeveloped plots with the potential for a further 2,000 new homes.
The Village will also include new education and healthcare facilities, parklands, public squares and open space.
ODA chief executive Dennis Hone said: “The quality of the three shortlisted parties is a vote of confidence in the Olympic Village, demonstrating both UK and international interest in first-class British property.
“The village will deliver the best of city living all in one place with high-quality new homes joined by education and healthcare facilities, new parklands, public squares and open space. Securing best value and the best legacy owner for the village will be key.’
The three shortlisted organisations have now been selected to submit best and final offers.
