Places for London, Transport for London's property company, is searching for a development partner for a 1,500-home project on the Limmo Peninsula in Newham. Located within the Royal Docks and Beckton Riverside Opportunity Area, the site covers five hectares, with 600 metres of river frontage. The north part of the site is five minutes’ walk from Canning Town train and bus stations. Places for London said plans could also include commercial space, public spaces, a new cycle and pedestrian bridge, and a river walk. “With the ability to build up to 1,500 new homes, including affordable housing, alongside a range of other improvements, this is a unique opportunity for a partner to help us transform this site into a sustainable development that will benefit the local community", said Ben Tate, head of property development at Places for London. “This partnership will form part of our wider programme, which seeks to build the homes and commercial spaces the city needs, while also generating vital revenue that can then be reinvested into the transport network".
