Millennium Mills

UK Government has granted a £12m fund to convert Millennium Mills into a business centre in the heart of London’s Royal Docks.

Work on the former 450,000ft² flour mill site has started with demolition of the interiors and removal of asbestos contamination.

The renovation aims to prepare the mill for a new generation of start-up businesses, by 2017.

Redevelopment of Millenium Mills is to be the centrepiece of a £3.5bn project to transform the 62-acre Silvertown Quays part of the Royal Docks, taking it from industrial to digital age and delivering five million ft² of business and retail space.

Local Growth Minister Penny Mordaunt said: "This iconic building, once a symbol of decline, will be the centrepiece of a thriving new business district that will create thousands of new jobs and bring prosperity back to the docks.
