Notting Hill Housing Trust has put together a consortium to complete the development with United House, Durkan & Galliford Try.

Its design team includes Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Maccreanor Lavington and MUF Art & Architecture.

Notting Hill Housing Trust proposes to build around 700 new homes and 50,000 square feet of retail and community space. Their selection, subject to contract, follows a competitive dialogue process launched in summer 2010, with final tenders received by the LDA in June 2011.

Notting Hill Housing Trust was chosen ahead of shortlisted Gladedale and Zero C, Swan Housing Association and Kier.

The Royal Docks is London's biggest development opportunity and the London Development Agency (LDA) is working with the London Borough of Newham to regenerate the area.

LDA director of development Stephen Kennard said: “Our vision for the Royal Docks is a place with vibrant communities with high quality homes and lasting employment. As part of that vision, we want to create a new sustainable community in Gallions Quarter and Notting Hill Housing Trust's proposals will do just that - build new homes, new business space and community facilities, all to high quality design standards, helping to create a lasting legacy in the Albert Basin."

The Gallions Quarter site sits within the Albert Basin area at the eastern end of the Royal Docks where the LDA is the major landowner. 

A planning application is expected to be submitted by January 2012, with the aim of completing construction of the entire scheme by 2018.
