Work has started on phase two of Bouygues Construction’s £600M Hallsville Quarter urban regeneration project in Canning Town, London.

 

The five phase project will provide 1100 new homes, more than 30,000 m2 of leisure and retail premises and over 3000 m2 of space devoted to community amenities. The plan also incorporates new public spaces and facilities for cyclists, as well as 1100 secure car parking spaces.

 

Phase two is worth approximately £130M and will involve construction of new shops, restaurants, a hotel and 350 new residential flats. Handover is scheduled for 2017.

 

The scheme is being delivered by Bouygues UK and its property development company, Bouygues Development, and was designed by John McAslan + Partners, Hunters and Associated Architects.

 

Phase one of the Hallsville Quarter project saw Bouygues deliver 179 residential units and a 7900 m2 supermarket.

 

Once all five phases are completed in 2024, Canning Town will be at the heart of the wider Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Project, a £3.7Bn scheme which aims to transform a large part of the London Borough of Newham.

 

Bouygues Bâtiment International chairman and CEO Olivier-Marie Racine said: “We are now looking forward to beginning the next phase of the Canning Town Regeneration Project as we are currently in the process of handing over the first phase.

 

“Providing new housing, a hotel, public spaces and streets with shops and businesses, Bouygues Development is creating a dynamic and vibrant new district which will breathe new life into Canning Town, creating new opportunities for the local community.”
