WCN Editorial Team 17 Apr 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

London's residential developer Mount Anvil and its partner ExCeL London have secured planning permission for phases two and three of its Royal Docks development in East London.

The two firms worked together to secure the resolution to grant planning permission from Newham’s Strategic Development Committee for the 800-home scheme Royal Eden Docks.

The Royal Eden Docks will be built on Western Gateway, Royal Victoria Dock, in the London Borough of Newham, and will adjoin phase one of the scheme, known as Royal Docks West.

The 19-storey tower Royal Docks West was launched to market in spring 2017. It is now 90% sold.

Mount Anvil said that the two new phases will deliver 796 new homes, bringing the total number of homes in the scheme to 901.

The new development, which will be designed by architect SOM, will comprise a selection of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, with 35% affordable housing.

Mount Anvil development director Emma Foster 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.”

Construction at Royal Eden Docks is scheduled to commence in autumn 2019 and is expected to take five and a half years to complete. The project is expected to create about 147 new construction jobs annually.
