The 29 companies appointed are a mixture of private and publicly-owned developers, contractors and housing assocations and will take control of London's public land projects for the next four years. These projects are expected to deliver up to £20bn worth of mixed-use development in the capital.
Our CEO, Andy Portlock had this to say. "Although we were a part of the first London Developer Panel as part of our Hadley Mace joint venture, this is a step change for us and one which we've been ready to make for some time now. Our being appointed to LDP2 shows that City Hall does not want London to be built solely by the same four or five names, and that a design-led, boutique approach to development with a focus on collaborative working with partners, both public and private, is just as key to addressing the city's housing need."
In no particular order, we would like to offer our thanks to the team who assisted in the bid process late last year. These are: Maccreanor Lavington, Deloitte Real Estate, Buro Happold, Turner and Townsend and TPS Project Management.
