Mace was selected by co-developers Ballymore and Singapore’s Oxley Holdings.
The Royal Wharf development is on the north banks of the River Thames in east London, close to the Thames Barrier. There are plans for more than 3,000 apartments and town houses as well as retail space, cafes, a school and restaurants.
The first homes are expected to be complete in 2017. Phase one has been designed by architects Glenn Howells and Fielden Clegg Bradley.
Mace chief operating officer for construction, Gareth Lewis, said: “As London continues to grow, major residential projects such as Royal Wharf are key to ensuring this city maintains its status as a major international hub, providing the essential space and infrastructure to support its growth. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work on such an exciting project, which will not only meet this demand but will provide a vital economic boost to East London.”
Oxley chief executive Ching Chiat Kwong said: “We are looking forward to seeing Royal Wharf transform and rejuvenate the Royal Docks area, and help to make this location one of the most exciting places to live and work.”
