Mount Anvil And ExCel London Secure Support For Development In Newham

Construction News Image
London developer Mount Anvil has teamed up with ExCel London and secured support for phases two and three of its development in Newham.

A resolution to grant planning permission from Newham's Strategic Development Committee for phases two and three of its development located on Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, in the London Borough of Newham, has been secured.

Royal Eden Docks adjoins phase one of the scheme, known as Royal Docks West – a 19-storey tower, which was launched successfully to market in spring 2017 and is now 90% sold.

The two new phases will deliver 796 new homes, amounting to a total of 901 units when combined with the homes delivered at Royal Docks West – and representing Mount Anvil’s largest ever scheme. With architecture by SOM, the development will comprise a selection of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, with 35% affordable housing (by habitable room).

Emma Foster, Development Director, Mount Anvil, said: "Securing resolution to grant planning permission for phases two and three of Royal Eden Docks is a landmark moment for the site. The success of phase one demonstrated buyer demand for homes in this part of London, and in a period when the capital is gripped by an acute housing shortage, it’s important that we are working in partnership with the GLA to bolster the delivery of new homes for Londoners.

"Phase one brought substantial investment in the community and surrounding infrastructure, and we look forward to building on that investment with the construction of phases two and three.

"The Royal Docks is one of London’s last pockets of regeneration, and Mount Anvil is proud to be shaping the area for future generations, with the delivery of high quality, tenure-blind new homes and amenities, and helping to establish it as a sought-after place to live."
