Wed 16th December 2015, 4:27 pm

Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced Berkeley Homes as its chosen developer to transform an abandoned courier depot in Newham into 3,500 homes, a school and a park.

The 10 hectare site is located on Stephenson Street in Canning Town in Newham. Of the 3,500 homes, almost a third will be affordable, according to Berkeley. 

Johnson claimed the project was an "ambitious development", which would "further the continuing transformation of east London as part of our Olympic legacy". 

"This huge chunk of disused land will be put to the best possible use," he added.

Berkeley chairman Tony Pidgley said: "Stephenson Street will be a new village for London. It will have all the qualities that a successful community needs: shops, workspaces and a school, links between neighbours, a beautiful park where people can play and great transport connections. Above all, this site will create homes for people regardless of their age, background or income. It will be a place for everyone."

The Greater London Authority will attend the upcoming Sitematch London event on 10 February 2016. To secure your booking contact Sophie Gosling.
