Partners sought for £500m East London regeneration project

The London Borough of Tower Hamlets and the Homes & Communities Agency are looking to appoint one or more development partners for a regeneration project in East London worth up to £500 million.

The project covers an area known as Blackwall Reach, which includes the council’s housing site at Robin Hood Gardens, part of Poplar High Street, Woolmore Primary School, a doctors surgery and an area to the south around Blackwall DLR station.

Work to be carried out includes demolition and site clearance followed by construction of residential units, a school, community building, shops and commercial units.

The project may be split into several phases with expected outputs of between 1,600 and 2,000 residential units of mixed tenure properties.

The development partner could either be a registered social landlord with development expertise or a consortium registered social landlord, developers and/or contractors.

Interested firms have until 29 January to submit pre-qualification questionnaires and up to six bidders will be shortlisted and invited to tender.
