Bouygues and One Housing Group win £500m Canning Town regeneration

Bouygues Development and its consortium partner One Housing Group to develop a £500 million town centre opposite Canning Town station in East London for Newham Council.

Upon completion the town centre will house an estimated 1,100 new mixed-tenure homes and around 60,000 sqm of retail, offices, leisure facilities and a supermarket.

The redevelopment, on a 16-acre brownfield site, will provide up to 500 jobs throughout the 10 year construction phase.

Newham Council is now working with Bouygues Development, and its partners, to secure opportunities for local people to work on the scheme.

The development is taking place in addition to the Rathbone Market and A13 junction improvement scheme which both received planning approval this year.

Other major projects in the borough include the 2012 Olympic Park and the development of Stratford City, which will have the biggest shopping centre in the South-east of England.
