Royal Albert Dock
2012 - ongoing
The 35-acre site at Royal Albert Dock is being transformed by Farrells on behalf of ABP into a gateway for Asian and Chinese business seeking to establish headquarters in Europe as well as other businesses wanting to set up in the capital.
Historically the trading heartland of the capital, the development will re-instate the Royal Docks as a commercial and trading centre for the 21st century, delivering 20,000 full-time jobs and up to 1,000 homes. When complete, the site will become London’s third business district worth £6 billion to the UK economy and act as a catalyst for the transformation of the wider Royal Docks.
The largest development of its kind in the UK, this state-of-the-art business district will serve as a platform for financial, high-tech and knowledge driven industries. The deal represents one of the first direct investments by a Chinese developer in London’s property market and will be home to over 3.2 million square feet of high quality work, retail and leisure space creating a new, vibrant 24/7 district with an active waterfront. It includes a new high street, waterside promenade, eight new London squares and an ecological corridor acting as a buffer to the road. Signature headquarters buildings in the central square include biomes on the roofs and all of the buildings within the masterplan will be highly sustainable.
