267 affordable homes have been developed by Telford Homes and Notting Hill Genesis at the Royal Albert Wharf, East London.

Telford Homes and Notting Hill Genesis celebrated the triumphant accomplishment, as not only did the two buildings reach their full structural height at 11 storeys, but the development is set to provide affordable housing in the Beckton area.

“Working alongside our partners at Notting Hill Genesis, these homes have been designed to be high-quality places that residents can live in, stay in and enjoy for years to come.”

Greg Scott, Construction Director, Telford Homes

“We remain immensely pleased to be a part of the Royal Docks regeneration and, in particular, to be working alongside Telford Homes on this exciting scheme.”

Jake Brodetsky, Joint Ventures Director, Notting Hill Genesis

With more than half of the homes on the joint venture’s site classed as affordable, the scheme is also ahead of the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) and London Borough of Newham’s 50% target.

132 of the homes will be for market rent, with a further 135 affordable rent and shared ownership homes. 40% of the development will be three-bedroom family homes.

The Gallions Quarter 2b phase aims to address the requirement to build much-needed new homes in London. The regeneration will be the first to be delivered under the New London plan.

“Once complete, this latest phase of the Gallions Quarter scheme will deliver 267 new homes across two blocks, of which 51% will be affordable and 40% will be family homes. Developed to the highest standards, including in their environmental sustainability credentials, these new homes will be an example of how we can meet London’s housing needs, now and in the future.”

The ‘topping out’ of the scheme, which has been endorsed by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, was marked by a ceremony attended by Telford Homes, Notting Hill Genesis, the GLA, Hunters and the sub-contracting team.

“This latest milestone as we work towards completion early next year, including recognition from the Mayor of London, is a very proud moment for the whole team as we develop new, much-needed homes for the capital’s communities.”

Residents of the scheme, which aims to transform the local area into a vibrant creative hub, will have access to communal landscaped podium gardens, secure parking, new public amenities provided across Royal Albert Wharf and benefit from a concierge for their security and convenience.

Part of Phase 2b of the Gallions Quarter scheme and Royal Docks multi-billion-pound regeneration, the completion of the development is expected to be finished in early 2024.
