Peabody in the news

The scheme, which will deliver 295 homes, is our first joint venture with the developer Redrow.

The Royal Docks is undergoing a regeneration following its designation as an Enterprise Zone in 2010. We are working on a joint venture there with Redrow to convert a former brownfield site on North Woolwich Road into new homes. The site has been vacant since the closure of an Esso Service station.

The 295 homes being built at Pontoon Reach will include a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

"We're pleased to be starting onsite at Royal Docks. Working with Redrow, the Mayor of London and the London Borough of Newham, this important scheme will deliver nearly 300 much-needed new homes. Pontoon Reach will be a great addition to this exciting regeneration area."

Mark Parker (right above), Managing Director at Redrow London, commented:

"The joint venture with Peabody further highlights our commitment to delivering new homes for Londoners as we look to deliver more homes in key regeneration areas across the capital.

"This area of London is currently undergoing a huge transformation. It’s fantastic to be a part of it."
