Bouygues Launches Hallsville Quarter Project Phase 2

Construction firm Bouygues are launching the second, £130m Canning Town phase of their Hallsville Quarter project after reaching financial close. The latest phase is a significant part of the London Borough of Newham’s £3.6bn Canning Town & Custom House Regeneration Programme which aims to build a sustainable community for both residents and businesses in the area.

A new town centre, numerous high rise towers comprising 350 homes each, a hotel, retail spaces and restaurants have all been designed by Hunters, Associated Architects and John McAslan + Partners. These brand new constructions will totally revamp the area over the course of five major construction phases.

With the first phase now in the handover stage and the second stage achieving financial close, work on the next phase is slated to begin in Q1 2015.

Who’s doing what?

The hotel which will accommodate 196 bedrooms, will be owned and run by the international hotel operator Accor, under their Ibis brand.

Elsewhere in the development, a number of different groups will be looking after the housing following completion:

  • Private rented sector homes are to be owned and operated by Grainger
  • Affordable shared ownership housing will be owned and operated by One Housing
  • Private residences are to be purchased by Mountain Capital

The vision

“A dynamic and vibrant new district” is what Bouygues Bâtiment International CEO Olivier-Marie Racine envisions for the Hallsville Quarter redevelopment. Fresh public areas, new housing and new retail opportunities will help bring vibrancy and activity to this corner of London.

The redevelopment is one of the biggest London has seen, creating 1,100 brand new homes, 300,000 sq ft of retail and community space plus 30,000 sq ft of community buildings. With plans for 1,100 parking spaces, alongside special developments for cyclists, this project could transform the area for the better.
